The steps below will remove Analytical Accounting from all companies, so you cannot use these steps if you are using AA in any of your companies (that use the same Dynamics database).

How to completely remove Analytical Accounting

To completely remove Analytical Accounting, follow the appropriate steps for the version of Microsoft Dynamics GP that you are using:


  • Historical AA tables were added in GP 10.0 so the scripts work for GP 10.0 and later versions.
  • Make sure to perform all 13 steps listed below. The last step is often missed.
  • If you wish to continue to use Analytical Accounting in one or more of your companies, then do not use the steps below. These steps will remove AA from all of the companies.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 and higher versions

  1. Make a full backup of the Microsoft Dynamics GP databases. Make sure that this backup does not overwrite an existing backup.

  2. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.

  3. In the left pane, click Change or Remove Programs.

  4. Click on the Microsoft Dynamics GP version listed that you have installed and then click Change.

  5. Click Add/Remove Features.

  6. In the Select Features window, click Do not install feature in the Analytical Accounting list.

  7. Click Next, and then click Install.

  8. In the Installation Complete window, click Finish.

  10. Remove all AA SQL objects from the DYNAMICS database by downloading the KB915903_AA_Remove_AACompete_DYNAMICS_10.sql script and execute it against the Dynamics database:

  11. Remove all AA SQL objects from COMPANY databases by downloading the KB915903_10.sql script and execute it against EACH company database.

  12. Execute the scripts that you downloaded in steps 10 and 11.

    1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server version you have installed, and then click SQL Server Management Studio.

    2. Log on by using the sa password.

    3. On the File menu, click Open, and then click File.

    4. Locate and then click the KB915903_10.sql script file, click the "company" database in the list, and then press F5 to run the script.


      The KB915903_10.sql script must be run against each and all Microsoft Dynamics GP company databases.

    5. Locate and then click the KB915903_AA_Remove_AAComplete_DYNAMICS_10.sql script file, and then run the script against the "DYNAMICS" database. To do this, click DYNAMICS in the database list, and then press F5.

  13. Remove the Product ID for AA from the system tables. To do this, run the following statements against the DYNAMICS database in SQL Server Management Studio:

    Delete DB_Upgrade where PRODID='3180' Delete DU000020 where PRODID='3180'


    "PRODID of '3180'" represents the Analytical Accounting module.
