Migration Approach

Using the Dynamics GP Data Migration Extension

The Dynamics GP Data Migration extension makes it easy to migrate customers, vendors, inventory items, general ledger accounts, open payables and open receivables transactions from Dynamics GP to Business Central. If your business uses Dynamics GP today, you can export the relevant records and then open an assisted setup guide to add the data to Business Central. The migration extension works for all supported versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Exporting Data from Dynamics GP

You must have exported some or all of your existing customers, vendors, inventory items, and general ledger accounts using data export functionality within Dynamics GP. When selecting the data to export the following types can be selected:

  • Account
  • Customer
  • Item
  • Vendor

When the export file is created you will have a zip file that contains several txt files that will be determined by what you selected during the export data process. There will also be additional txt files that are generated that contain supporting information needed for setup within your new Business Central company. The Dynamics GP Data Migration extension automatically maps the exported data so that your data is quickly available to you in your new Business Central company.
