MSDYN365BC 2019 Wave 2 - Upgrading an Modified C/AL Database - Part 1.

Hi Readers,

In this article, we will do some quick customization in a Business Central Spring 2019 Release(14) and we will use that database in this series to upgrade to Business Central 2019 Wave 2 (15).

As I said earlier I will be using Business Central 14 (Cumulative Update 08) and that is the only version that I can use to Upgrade to Business Central 15 (Cumulative Update 03).

If you have a different version of Business Central 14, then refer to the compatible version of 15.

#MSDYN365BC #BC2019Wave2

For other Articles in this series Refer Here.
  1. To start with, I restored a Base Microsoft Cronus Database from the Business Central 14 Product DVD.
  2. I named the database as UPG_CustomApp_14_15.

What Custom I am doing - 
  • Adding a field in Master & Transaction Tables listed Below with Three Fields - 
    • Tables - G/L Account, Item, Sales Line, Resource, Fixed Asset & Item Charge.
    • Fields  - Test Text Field, Test Boolean Fields, Test Integer Field.

  • Adding those fields in Master and Transaction Pages Below with Three Fields.
    • Pages - G/L Account Card, Item Card, Sales Order Subform, Resource Card, Fixed Asset Card & Item Charges.
    • Fields - Test Text Field, Test Boolean Fields, Test Integer Field.

  • Also Added Some Custom Code in Sales Line Table.
    • Functions - CopyFromGLAccount, CopyFromResource, CopyFromFixedAsset, CopyFromItem & CopyFromItemCharge.
    • The Idea with these custom Lines is to copy those three fields values from Master Table to Transaction Table.

** Again as I said earlier, This customization is just for Demo. This can be easily converted to an AL Extension. I am not suggesting to use this approach, I am just using this for this demo.

Later I created a Batch to add data into these fields as shown below.

So, in the end, you should have the following objects modified. In Total a 12 Objects were Modified.

In the Next Article, we will discuss merging these modifications in the Business Central 2019 Wave 2 Base Application and then do data Upgrades.

Stay tuned for more.

Hope you find it useful.

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.
