Business Value - 

Maintenance of the chart of accounts takes place only a few times, once it's been set up for an organization, but it does occur. To help avoid accidental deletion of general ledger (G/L) accounts, this release wave adds an extra check.

Feature Details - 

  • In Some Situation, business needs might require you to make a change in your chart of accounts that involves deleting one or more accounts.
  • Before user delete an account, you must balance the account to zero and then close the fiscal year to prevent new entries from being added to the account. 
  • Most countries and regions have requirements for how long businesses must store their financial data.
  • To Help Administrators with legal Requirement Microsoft have added a field in General Ledger Setup Check G/L Acc. Deletion After - specify the start date of the period for which your country or region requires you to store financial data.

  • To further safeguard accounts from accidentally being deleted, Microsoft also added the Block Deletion of G/L Accounts toggle to the General Ledger Setup page.

If you turn on the toggle, Business Central will prevent users from deleting accounts that have entries after the date that is specified in the Check G/L Acc. Deletion After field. If you must delete such accounts, a user who can access the General Ledger Setup page can turn off the Block Deletion of G/L Accounts toggle.

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.
