Navision - How to Display Multiple Lines In a Message / Error Window?

Hi all,

This is nothing most of you would be interested in. This post only show steps about how to display text in multiple lines from Navision Code.

If you don't know this, then please go ahead.

The intended readers for this post are the Peoples who have recently joined and are still Learning NAV.

Hope you like the post. If you do like these kind of basic stuff let me know as comment or via Contact Me Page. If I found that you would like to read these basic stuff i would post more.

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.
