    RE: multi company

    Hello TexMet,

    Before setting up Multi-Company, it is necessary to decide whether to record multiple companies in a single-application database or have separate companies in separate application databases.

    The single-database option works best for organizations made up of many similar companies where transaction volumes are lower and funds are normally disbursed from a single company.

    A single-database environment should be used when all companies meet the following requirements:

    • Shared chart of accounts
    • Shared fiscal calendars
    • Shared ledgers
    • Shared flexkey definitions
    • Shared base currency

    The multiple-database configuration is appropriate when the companies are very different, transaction volumes are high, and each company operates distinctly from the others.

    You can find the same from Multicompany.pdf which you could found in User Manuals folder of Dynamics SL SDK.
