"Invalid Object Name ..SY01500" error after restoring GP 2013 company database in a different environment

| 05/19/2014 | 0 Comments

After restoring the database, we could see the following error messages attempting to access the database: Invalid object name SY01500 error  smCleanupFilesBeforeLogin stored procedure error Login failed error Enabling a DEXSQL.LOG gave us more insight into the issue. We could see the following prepared statement being executed prior to the ODBC error message: /*  Date: 05/18/2014  Time: 19:55:37 stmt(148745784):*/ BEGIN DECLARE @stored_proc_name char(34) DECLARE @retstat int DECLARE @param5 tinyint DECLARE @param6 smallint DECLARE @param7 tinyint DECLARE @param8 tinyint DECLARE @param9 tinyint DECLARE @param10 tinyint DECLARE @param11 tinyint DECLARE @param12 int set nocount on SELECT @param5 = 0 SELECT @stored_proc_name = ‘ZBPI.dbo.smCleanupFilesBeforeLogin’ EXEC @retstat = @stored_proc_name 5, ‘sa’, ‘ Company_Name ‘, 0, @param5 OUT, @param6 OUT, @param7 OUT, @param8 OUT, @param9 OUT, @param10 OUT, @param11 OUT, @param12 OUT SELECT @retstat, @param5, @param6, @param7, @param8, @param9, @param10, @param11, @param12 set nocount on END /* /*  Date: 05/18/2014  Time: 19:55:37 SQLSTATE:(S0002) Native Err:(208) stmt(148745784):*/ MicrosoftSQL Server Native Client 10.0SQL ServerInvalid object name ‘DYNGP2013..SY01500′.*/ /* The prepared statement calls the dbo.smCleanupFilesBeforeLoging stored procedure, which has (68) hardcoded references to the former system database in the old environment

Granted, MVP Mark Polino hates Report Writer (RW), but even he will admit he loves a good RW nugget when he sees one. Several times I’ve been asked “how do I visualize long Report Writer calculated field expressions?”
