Company Data Archive
Improve System Performance with Company Data Archive
Company Data Archive (CDA) provides an easy way to move historical information from your 'live' company to an 'archive' company. Archiving your data will reduce the size of your live company database and improve system performance while posting, running reports, performing file maintenance, and day-to-day use of Dynamics GP.
Benefits of Archiving your GP Data:
- Faster Dynamics GP performance and upgrades
- Reduces hardware costs
- Eliminates clutter in inquires and reports
- Ability to bulk archive and/or remove GP data from your live company
- Easily view your historical data in your archive company
CDA allows you to enter a cutoff date for historical data you want archived all transactions on or before that date will be moved to the archive company.
The archived transactions will still be available to inquire and report on by simply logging into the archive company as you would any other Dynamics GP company.
You can also take advantage of powerful cross company inquiries to view transactions from your live and historical companies at the same time.
You are also able to use Microsoft Dynamics® GP while an archive is running*. As the archive process has been broken into smaller tasks, the SQL server is able to process other transactions that otherwise would be in the queue for hours.
Company Data Archive allows you to archive a large dataset at times that are convenient for you. The Pause and Resume buttons allow you interrupt the process and resume without losing any archived data, simply choose the next step; continue, start over or new archive.
During the archive process you can see:
- Customer/Vendor number, indicating which one is currently being processed
- Number of customer/vendors remaining to be processed
- Number of tables that are going to be archived
Company Data Archive will archive data from:
- General Ledger
- Bank Reconciliation
- Receivables Management
- Payables Management
- Purchase Order Processing
- Sales Order Processing
- U.S. Payroll
*Performance of Microsoft Dynamics® GP may be limited, as the SQL server could use most of its capacity to run the archive process. Performance will depend on the server's hardware specifications such as memory, processor, etc. It is recommended that you check if running the archive process during business hours still provides acceptable levels of performance for Microsoft Dynamics® GP.
