Import Dynamics GP Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up Dynamics GP data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Dynamics GP.

Using SQL Server as a backup for critical business data provides an essential safety net against loss. Backing up data to SQL Server enables business users to more easily connect that data with features like reporting, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Tasks for Dynamics GP inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Dynamics GP data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new Dynamics GP source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Dynamics GP connection properties in a connection manager.

  1. In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. In the Connection Manager type menu, select DynamicsGP. The CData Dynamics GP Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    To authenticate set the User and Password connection properties.

    To connect set the URL to the Web services endpoint; for example, http://{servername}:{port}/Dynamics/GPService. Additionally, set CompanyId; you can obtain this value in the company setup window: Click Tools -> Setup -> Company.

    By default, data summaries are not returned to save performance. Set LookupIds to true to return details such as line items; however, note that entities must be retrieved one at a time.

Configure the Dynamics GP Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract Dynamics GP data.

  1. Double-click the Dynamics GP source to open the source component editor.
  2. In the Connection Manager menu, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. Specify the query to use for the data extraction. For example: SELECT CustomerName, TotalAmount FROM SalesInvoice
  4. Close the Dynamics GP Source control and connect it to the ADO.NET Destination.

Configure the SQL Server Destination

Follow the steps below to specify the SQL server table to load the Dynamics GP data into.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Destination and add a New Connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "table or view".
  3. In the Table Or View menu, select the table or view to populate.
  4. Configure any properties you wish to on the Mappings screen.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, your database will be populated with Dynamics GP data.
