Microsoft Dynamics GP SQL Reporting: overview for consultant

Microsoft Great Plains Dynamics GP is SQL driven application and SQL scripting should be good support for Finance department in analyzing their financial positions, especially when you have cash flow responsible subdivisions within your company.  Similar job can be done in such tools as FRx, Crystal Reports, however it is often too difficult to produce new FRx report, and it is too quick to run select scripts against your GL

Plus SQL has advantage of joining GL with SOP, POP, IV and produce aggregated queries for specific set of posted transactions.  In this small article we will show you how to produce Balance sheet for account segment.

Let’s assume you have subdivisions, each of them has individual second segment on account.  Following statement aggregates Debit-Credit summary for this segment (1001 in the sample below):

select

b.ACTNUMBR_1+ ' '+ b.ACTNUMBR_2, sum(DEBITAMT) - sum (CRDTAMNT)

from

GL20000 a

join GL00100 b on a.ACTINDX=b.ACTINDX

where b.ACTNUMBR_2='1001'

and a.OPENYEAR=2007

group by b.ACTNUMBR_1+ ' '+ b.ACTNUMBR_2

order by  b.ACTNUMBR_1+ ' '+ b.ACTNUMBR_2 asc

You should see the results, similar to followings:

1000    1001   1000.00        

2000    1001   500.00        

4000    1001   -3000.00     

5000    1001   1000.00      

6000    1001   500.00         

Please, note, that you should always have 0 in summary debit minus credit, if you assume that your subdivision is responsible for its cash flow.  However, obviously in real life you should be checking if this is the case and your accounting department keeps posting accurately on relevant account segments.  The following script will give you summary debit-credit for the segment:

select

sum(DEBITAMT), sum (CRDTAMNT), sum(DEBITAMT) - sum (CRDTAMNT)

from

GL20000 a

join GL00100 b on a.ACTINDX=b.ACTINDX

where b.ACTNUMBR_2='1001'

and a.OPENYEAR=2007

You can use this script to verify on the fly in SQL Query analyzer against GP company database if your subdivision 1001 balance is accurate

Your SQL developers can go aheadScience Articles, use this scripts as a basic and advance them to reflect more complex logic
