Enabling Multi Currency on upgrades

Suggested Answer

Dear Colleagues,

I have run a test upgrade for a client going from GP 2013 R2 to GP 2018 with the latest hot fix.  When the client began to test, they received an error when entering a SOP order that states: "Your Multicurrency registration status has changed.  Please check links on the Multicurrency Setup table.".  I went ahead and ran checklinks on the Multicurrency setup and it has been running for 3 days now.  The client does have a large company database (90 gb) and over 1 million SOP header records.  Granted, this test server is a bit undersized, but I really can't chance the live upgrade taking over 3 days.  This was an issue with one of our other upgrades.  Our consultant was instructed to turn on Multi-Currency in the registration window, Log out of GP, Log back in, and run check links on all series.  Luckily, this client had only one company and it was a small database.  Since the customer never used multicurrency in the past, is there not a way we can just update the currency field(s) in all the tables using scripts?  Or do we have to go through this check links process on all series?  I would probably opt to change this in their current production so when it is time to go live, we could fit it over a weekend. 

Your help is appreciated

Thanks

John M

If they have never used multi-currency in the past what is the reason to turn it on now? I would not turn on MC and you will not see this message and will not run into this issue.

Hi John,

See my other reply on the GPUG Forum.. but basically it rejoins Richard's answer.. If they do want to enable MC, either do it before and thoroughly test it in 2013 and then upgrade, or upgrade first and enable it after.. There is a lot of work involved when enabling MC in GP.

John,

I don't know if you ever managed to solve your MC checklinks issue, but basically that's what Microsoft points towards when enabling MC after several years of operations without MC..:
