As a Microsoft Dynamics GP implementer, I run into a number of issues that the everyday user never sees. One such issue can occur when mass loading data, updating the system through the database (not recommended!) or just through normal business processes. Errors happen! Sometimes, the best intentions don’t go unpunished.
Why? When data is entered in GP, multiple tables are populated with the data, not just one. Everything is linked. That’s the beauty of an ERP system. But sometimes, wires cross & fixes are needed.
The Checklinks tool helps examine the links between related information, helping to restore any damaged data.
Even before problems arise, Checklinks can be used for general clean up. Be sure to make a backup of your data prior to using the functionality, just to be safe.
