You receive "The selected company is being modified by another user" error message when you try to modify company data in Business Portal


When you try to modify company data in the Manage Company Setup window, you receive the following error message:

The selected company is being modified by another user

This problem occurs when you use Requisition Management in Business Portal for Microsoft Dynamics GP and for Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains.

When this problem occurs, no other users are accessing this company data in Business Portal.


The error message is caused by a user record that is not being cleared from the MultiUserManager table. The MultiUserManager table is located in the Dynamics database.


To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Run the following script in SQL Query Analyzer to see which user records are not being cleared in the MultiUserManager table.

    SELECT * FROM  DYNAMICS..MultiUserManager

    Note The MultiUserManager table should be cleared every 20 minutes. However, user records sometimes remain in the table.

  2. To delete the user record from the table, run the following script.

    Note Back up the Dynamics database before you run the script.

    DELETE DYNAMICS..MultiUserManager WHERE UserID = XXX

    Note Replace XXX with the user ID of the user record that was returned in step 1.
