finsql.exe command=deletecompany, [servername=<server>,] [database=<database>,] [company=<company>,] [logfile=<path and filename>,] [username=<user name>,] [password=<password>,] [ntauthentication=<yes|no|0|1>]

Parameters

servername

The name of the database server on which you want to run the command and delete the company.

If you do not specify both the servername parameter and the database parameter, then the database server and database that are stored in the fin.zup file are used.

When you first specify a database server and database to open, either from a command at a command prompt or from a client, the database server and database are stored in the fin.zup file. By default, the fin.zup file is located at C:\users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\.

If you do not specify the servername parameter but you do specify the database parameter, then the Open Database window opens so that you can specify the database server name.

To view the name of the server on which the current database is stored, on the File menu, choose Database, and then choose Information. Use the value of the Database Server field for the servername parameter.

database

The database that contains the company to delete.

If you do not specify both the servername parameter and the database parameter, then the database server and database that are stored in the fin.zup file are used.

company

The name of the company that you want to create.

logfile

The path and file name for the file that contains error messages that result from the command. If there are no errors, then a log file is not created.

By default, the file is named naverrorlog.txt and is located in the same location as finsql.exe.

The navcommandresult.txt file, which contains information about the success or failure of the command, is created in the folder that is specified by the logfile parameter.

When you run finsql.exe with a command, the previous log file and result file are deleted.

JJ966289.note(en-us,NAV.70).gifNote
If User Access Control (UAC) is turned on and you do not specify to run the Command Prompt window as Administrator, then the Command Prompt window runs as a standard user. In this case, if you do not specify the logfile parameter, then the command fails because the standard user cannot write to the default location of the log file.

username

The user name to use to authenticate to the database. The user name must exist in the database. If you do not specify a user name and password, then the command uses the Windows user name and password of the current user to authenticate to the database.

If User Access Control (UAC) is turned on and you do not specify to run the Command Prompt window as Administrator, then the Command Prompt window runs as a standard user. In this case, if you do not specify the username parameter and the current Windows user is an Administrator, then the command is run as the standard user.

If you specify the username parameter, then you must also specify the password parameter and the ntauthentication parameter must be no.

For more information about database users and permissions, see Setting Database Owner and Security Administration Permissions.

password

The password to use with the username parameter to authenticate to the database. If you do not specify a user name and password, then the command uses the Windows user name and password of the current user to authenticate to the database.

ntauthentication

Specifies if you want to use NT authentication. The possible values are yes, no, 1, or 0. If you specify the username and password parameters, then you must specify ntauthentication=no or ntauthentication=0.

You use the DeleteCompany command together with the finsql.exe executable. Finsql.exe is the executable file that runs the development environment. By default, finsql.exe is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\70\RoleTailored Client\.

This example deletes the company that is named MyCompany in the Demo Database NAV (7-0) database.

finsql.exe command=deletecompany, servername=TestComputer01\NAVDEMO, database="Demo Database NAV (7-0)", company=MyCompany
