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.
