Hi all,

During our previous post we read about installation and configuration of NAS.

Let's try to use this to automate a task.

For this Demo I consider the below scenario.

A report will run automatically in Every 1 Minute and will perform below transaction.

Insert a record in NAS TEST Table (50000) with Current Date, Current Time and a Entry number.

For Demo i have created NAS Test Table as shown below.

I have also created a Report which will Run Via NAS and Enter Data into this table.

Let's automate this report to run after 1 Minute via Job Queue.

As Already discussed check the necessary setup and service.

Then From Administration -> Application Setup -> Job Queue, Select Job Queue Entries.

Create a New Job Queue Entry as shown below.

After Setup Reset the status.

After 1 Minute you will find the entries are being added to tables automatically as shown below.

You can also check the status of Job Queue in Job Queue Log Entries.

In Next post we will try to automate the jobs that we have created for sending mails.

You can find objects created for this article on my SKYDRIVE.

MSDYN365BC - Data Upgrade To Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on premises.

Hi Readers, We have already talked about the number of steps for upgrading to Business Central on Premises from different NAV versions. After that article, I received multiple requests for an article which list down steps for Data Migration. In this article, we will discuss steps of data migration to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem) from NAV 2017. For this article, I am considering a Cronus Demo Database without any customization. For an actual upgrade project, we will have to complete object merge using compare and Merge process. After the Merge Process, the next step is data migration. Let's discuss those steps. Direct Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-Prem) is from following versions - 1. NAV 2015. 2. NAV 2016. 3. NAV 2017. 4. NAV 2018.
