I have been asked on several occasions if it is possible to delete the Sage 500 ERP Demo Company Data after it has been created. The answer is yes. It is nice to have it there for initial system review and training, but after you get up and running it is also nice to make it go away.
Well here are the basic steps for you to follow. It goes without saying but I feel it necessary to state the obvious anyway.
First and most importantly, MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR CURRENT Sage 500 ERP (formerly MAS 500) DATABASE! In fact it would not be a bad thing to verify that you can restore this database to another system and gain access into it before proceeding with this process in your production system. You should also verify these steps in a TEST instance as well.
Second you need to delete some information in SQL Server using the following SQL Script. This information is related to intra-company transactions.
Third you now go into Sage 500 ERP Company Maintenance and you can delete the Sage 500 ERP Demo Data companies one at a time. I like to delete them in the following order.
