Recreating Same Company Name in Great Plains 10

I've recently used GP Utilities to create 2 new companies but realised that I have loaded shipping methods etc when I should not. I then deleted both the companies using the Tools > Utilities > System > Delete Company.

I then deleted the databases on the backend SQL2005.

After that, I recreate the 2 companies using GP Utilities again, this time making sure I did not load the shipping methods. I worked normally and I can see the 2 databases created in SQL 2005.
However, when I tried to login to the companies, I cannot find them in the dropdown list of the Company Login.

When I tried to check using GP Utilities, it is also missing from there. However, only the SQL 2005, the 2 database is present.

How do I can them to show on the Company Login and work normally?

Are you logging in as 'sa' and do not see them?  Or as another GP user?  If another GP user, have you give that user access to the new companies?

If you do not see them as 'sa', can you run the following query in SQL and see if the companies are listed there?  

SELECT * FROM DYNAMICS..SY01500

Thanks to your clue, I found the key to the answer SY01500.

Apparently deleting the company from  Tools > Utilities > System > Delete Company left some remnants of records in some tables. Thus the recreation did not work as expected.

After deleting all references, I was able to successfully recreate the previous deleted companies using the same ID.

The BlogSpot link above has been deleted. I have the same problem, so I must have some "remnants of records in some tables." I need to know how to "delete all references".
