NavXtender from Insight Works is a free utility that enables users to attach documents to any Microsoft Dynamics NAV record with a simple drag and drop. With NavXtender, you’ll easily associate customer POs to orders; invoices to POs; quality documents to receipts; or any other file to any card in NAV.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s Incoming Document helps the user to efficiently upload and reference outside documents within their ERP database. Incoming Documents may be attached to unposted documents or journal lines and follow the posting to the resulting entries throughout NAV, notably posted documents and ledgers.
Last weekend I spent time to get things working on my Azure machine for the fourth week of the Junior Developer Training. A five week course I am running since last fall for Dynamics 365 Training Ltd. in the UK. While compiling the code of our example application I ran in to the following error:
If you want to add files to a nav document like orders, then you normally use the link factbox.

There is also a problem, if the file is moved, deleted or the permissions were changed.
