Expand - Collapse Feature in NAV RTC Reports

Hi all,

This feature is there from NAV 2009, sorry i am late but still most of us don't know about this feature.

Below is the demonstration of how to do it in NAV 2013.

I have taken a standard report "Inventory Valuation" for the Demo Purpose.

Below is the standard report output -

Now i went to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Development Environment, and designed the report.

Opened the layout of the report. Now i selected the body part of the report and went to group properties.

I just changed some properties in the Visibility tab of the group, as shown below.

And here is the output of the report after i saved and executed it again.

So it was nice and easy to do expand and collapse in RTC Report.

NAV 2013 First Error with License

Hi all,

After installing NAV 2013 RTC client doesn't get connected and throws the below error message.

Your program license does not permit you to run this version of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment. 
Contact your system administrator to upgrade your license. 

Reason For Error

I got this error because i have my old developer license (Developer License For NAV 2009 R2) uploaded on SQL Server.

The license does not support NAV 2013.


There are two ways to resolve the error -

1) For temporary solution import demo License file on the SQL Server that as shipped with NAV 2013 DVD.

2) For Permanent Soultion download the latest license file from Microsoft VOICE and upload that on SQL Server.

The Object File cannot be used with this version of the program.

Hi all,

While exporting the objects in FOB format we sometime get the below error that says -

"The Object File cannot be used with this version of the program."

 I got this error while trying objects from NAV 2009 installed and trying to export the objects in FOB Format whereas the Text format export was working fine.

After searching i found out that it was due to some exported objects of NAV 2013 lying at the same path.

Once i removed those higher version FOB files from the location i was able to take backup on that location.
