How Do I - Test My NAV Web Services.

Hi Readers, I am working a web Service project with a customer and having trouble in communication because from NAV we actually do nothing related to web service publishing. Let me try to explain the problem - If a customer request you to publish a page as web services, for example, "Customer List" Page what we do. 1. We open Web Services page. 2. Add a New record, of Type Page and ID 22 and give a Service Name like cust. 3. Share the URL with the customer. Now, what if the customer says, there we are unable to consume it to Read, Read Multiple and other web service functions what to do??? Let's discuss some of my findings.

How To Report SaveAsHTML Pre NAV 2017.

Hi Readers, Origin of the today's post is a requirement to Save as Report as HTML in NAV 2016. This also brings some learnings for me so thought to share with you all. Till NAV 2009 (if I remember it correctly) Report.SaveAsHTML was supported but due to design changes in NAV Microsoft decided to obsolete this feature after NAV 2009. But later in NAV 2017, microsoft felt a need to the function and it came back in existence. But due to this confusion, I have provided a bad estimate and end-up spending good amount of time to translate a report (in my case word layout) to an HTML file. In this article, we will see how we can transform a word file to an HTML File using DOTNET Components.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV - Get File Count from a Folder using Dotnet.

Hi All, Today I want to discuss a code re-write that I had to do on a recent project about file handling. Scenario - PDF will be saved in a shared path whenever a purchase invoice is printed. To Generate File Name we were using Purchase Invoice No. and then extending that with an integer. So if Purchase Invoice (PRO001) Report will be printed for the fifth time, the shared path will already have following files - PRO001-1.pdf PRO001-2.pdf PRO001-3.pdf PRO001-4.pdf And Next file name should be PRO001-5.pdf.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 - Email From NAV Part 3.

Hi Readers, Let's continue what we are discussing from Last two weeks. To understand the content of this article and use the pattern we are about to discuss in this article you need to go through old articles. If you haven't read the Part 1 and Part 2 below are the links for same. Part 1 - Send Email from Navision using a Pattern provided by Microsoft in New version. Part 2 - Develop a Word Layout for Sales Shipment Report. In this last article, we will discuss how to use the Pattern & Word Layout for sending an Email. The idea is Simple - Using word Layout for the Email Body and then use Email Pattern to send Email. Without Further Delay, let's discuss how we can configure & customize same in NAV 2017. Thanks to  Mohamed Zayed  and hope this solves your issue. ** What we are customizing is already part of standard NAV. The article is just for an explanation how to customize if required to be added in some other NAV areas.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 - Email From NAV Part 2.

Hi Readers, Continuing Email From NAV Part 1 . Today I would like to discuss a simple feature that Microsoft introduced in standard NAV for developing word Layout for a Report. We will use this article in next part. The Pattern in Developed and Enhanced from Microsoft starting NAV 2015.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 - Email From NAV Part 1.

Hi Readers, Today I would like to discuss a simple feature that Microsoft is working to be a part of standard NAV or I would say developed a Pattern for, but most of us are still using the old customizing ways which are hard as well as confusing to other developers. The Pattern in Developed and Enhanced from Microsoft starting NAV 2015. In today's article we will discuss how to use the pattern if we want to send an email from NAV and the in the future article we will discuss other enhancements which can be used instead of customizing NAV. The idea is Simple - Using base approach and Customize Less, Saves Cost to Customer and hassle for other developers. Your comments are awaited for future articles. ** This pattern is available from NAV 2015 onwards but for demo, we will be using in NAV 2017.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 - Feature OR Bug - Update Item Inventory from Item Card.

Hi Readers, I left the decision with you that the topic that we are discussing today is a feature or a bug which I found out recently in NAV 2017. To Me, It's a feature but with my discussion with some professional, I think it depends on customer business how they want to consider this. For some customers, it might be a feature but for some, they might want to remove it.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 - Thoughts on ApplicationArea Property.

Hi Readers, Today I would like to discuss ApplicationArea Property with NAV 2017 and Dynamics 365. As per my understanding (which can be wrong) this is a feature which is built in for Dynamics 365 but it does not make sense for Dynamics NAV. With that I feel that - When we look a new feature in the product starting 2017! we need to think about it use not only for NAV but also in perspective of Dynamics 365! The new enhancement available can be a feature of Dynamics 365 but it's of no use in Dynamics NAV.
