Find orphan note records in a Dynamics GP company database

About the Dynamics GP Notes table

Notes are held within the SY03900 company table in Dynamics GP. Every note in that notes table has a NOTEINDX, which is used by other tables in GP to reference that note. This makes the notes system extensible, when new modules/addins are created for GP,  those modules can simply piggy back off the existing notes table for their notes too by inserting notes into the table and referring to them by index. However this does have the disadvantage that looking at a random note in the notes table, you have no idea as to what records may be referencing that note. 

Hence, if you were to delete records from tables that reference note records, it orphans any note record for that deleted record. The note record can still exist, but the record that refers to it has been removed. An example of where this could happen is, if someone were to delete a sales order line using SQL DELETE, without also deleting the note record in SY03900 that is referenced by that sales order line record. 

You see, the note table does not have a "source" field to identify the "owner" table, so there is nothing in the note record to indicate from what table the note record originated. Thus you must check all the NOTEINDX fields in all the tables over the entire company database in order to find its owner.

Lucky for us, using dynamic SQL we can do this. We can query SQL server for the table definitions of all the tables in the database containing the field named NOTEINDX. We can then copy all the values that exist from each of those tables found into one big list of NOTEINDX values. Finally we can compare the notes table with that extracted big list of all valid values and find where we have a value in the notes table that does not exist in any of the tables in the GP company database. These will (most likely) be orphan records. Note you must exclude the SY03900 table itself when preparing this consolidated list!

Dynamic SQL to find all references to note records

The following script does this. It looks for any table that have a field named NOTEINDX and inserts all the note index numbers from those tables and fields into a temp table, from where you may join it back to the notes table to find the notes that no longer have reference in the database (orphaned). 

If you are then going to use the results from this to delete notes, beware as if you have a third party product that uses notes but does not name its reference to the note as NOTEINDX, so I'm saying use this with care, especially if you start removing notes based on it, check what they are first and gain confidence they are genuine orphans.

Solution to Acrobat reader slow to attach email, Get a link to your file, How do you want to share your file

Our Dynamics GP uses reporting services for generating sales documents, these documents often need to be emailed to customers and suppliers. It was recently brought to my attention that pressing the share icon on Acrobat DC to send a PDF by email launches a new share window. This window seems to often stall or take 30 seconds or longer to open sometimes with a spinning icon. I assume this is an attempt by Acrobat to draw people in the cloud document management solutions. For users transaction processing day in day out, this mounts up over a day and is annoying and inefficient.

Although I've not checked, I think this is because it will be contacting the Adobe servers in the background and our corporate firewall blocks a lot of traffic. Admin users don't seem to suffer this problem, which may be evidence of this being the case. 

Solution to slow to send email in acrobat:

To enable the envelope icon on the tools menu, to directly jump to attaching an email in outlook, avoiding this slow overlay share window,  then a registry change is required. The change is documented in the following acrobat resource, How to use the email icon to send a PDF directly as email attachment 

Basically the following registry change is required for DC users. Having applied this change outlook opens in sub-seconds  with the PDF attached.

Rebuild QTYONORDER of IV00102 Dynamics GP

I had to rebuild the quantity on purchase order of the inventory site qtys table today (On Order in Item Enquiry).

Wrote this SQL script that works for our install with our settings, but you should verify your install does not have other modules or modifications that may make this break.

 

Comment out the UPDATEs and uncomment the selects to see what is going to happen first, running SQL against your production environment is dangerous, test, test, test first. This is on the HIGH side of risky as a script to run.
