I've created a new company inside the same database as other companies. As this company needs to have the same contacts I looked for a solution in google. Many people say that they solve this using "DataPercompany" = no, but other ones say that it's better synchronize tables using programming with CHANGECOMPANY method.
What do you think about?
If you have to set "DataPercompany" = no for contact table then make sure that you have to set DataPercompany to all related tables which are used in Contacts.
ex: There is a field Territory Code in Contact table which has TableRelation to Territory table.
If you don't set DataperCompany to No for Territory table then you wont see data when lookup on Territory Code.
similarly, you can get errors while doing some process.
Thank you. In those cases I though to copy records cause it's not data that usually change like "Salutation Code" or "Post Code"...or "Territory Code".
My main problem is to know if it's neccesary to change "DataPerCompany" to "No" in Vendor, Customer, etc and other related tables to Contact table, because there are other companies in database which have the same "No. serie" field and they would overlap with each others.
Other question is about what will happen when we migrate NAV 5.1 to NAV 2013 R2?. Will this be (sharing tables) a problem?
Hi Victor! Avoid using "datapercomany" = no, use this method as your last option. You'll solve your problem today, but you'll have tons of new problems in the future (upgrades, etc.). (En resumen...yo no lo haría ni de coña :-))
You can share in your new company by using make some code for insert or modify contact in new company when you perform activity in old company.
Do not use DataPerCompany option.
Please verify my answer, if you find it helpful. Doing so you'll show others that there was found a solution and you credit my help.
