How to do a back up in Dynamics GP

As we approach year-end closing (for those on a Calendar year) there is the need to perform a back up in Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) prior to starting your year-end close, and often recommended for after you complete your year-end Close as well.

How to do a back up in Dynamics GP

To create a backup in Microsoft Dynamics GP, follow these steps:

  1. In your Microsoft Dynamics GP, point to Maintenance on the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu, and then click Backup.
    Note:  The Back Up Company window will then open.
  2. In the Company Name list, click your company name.
  3. Change the path of the backup file if it is required to save to a different location, and then click OK.

    Note We recommend that you name this backup 2016 Pre Year-End Update to differentiate it from your other backups.

Good luck!
