The values in the Customer summary table RM00103 keep drifting from what they should be. This causes issues with our pick list printing service that was using them in a complex credit checking routine. Sometimes the on order amount could be minus thousands of pounds, leading to goods being despatched when they shouldn’t.
For the way we use GP, the following script is adequate to compare the values in the tables with the transactions in GP. We don’t use receivable invoices but this could easily be added in using table IVC10100.
So on freshly reconciled company the following script returns no rows, when the values go out of line a SQL job emails the row to us, in order to try and ascertain what just happened somewhere in GP.
I post the SQL here merely as a starting point for others looking at customer balances or outstanding transactions against customers in GP with SQL as I didn’t see much from web searches on that subject. I strongly urge you to test the query first on your system.
