It happens all the time, you didn’t realize a customer was a 1099 vendor, or their vendor card wasn’t set up properly from the beginning; fortunately, it is fairly simple to correct and print a 1099 tax form in Dynamics NAV. This video provides an overview on correcting and printing 1099 tax forms in Dynamics NAV.
The Transformation Tool converts form objects in the Classic client to page objects that you can use in the RoleTailored client. The tool uses a set of rules that map objects in the Classic client to objects in the RoleTailored client. These rules are contained both in the transformation input files and in the transformation tool source files.
When you decide to migrate an application to the new three-tiered architecture, you must also decide which migration method is best suited to your business needs. Migrating to the new architecture can be an iterative process. You may need to run the form transformation tool multiple times and carefully alter any problematic forms to ensure that pages can be created that have the required layout.
The form transformation tool was designed with the following principles:
The tool converts all existing Microsoft Dynamics NAV forms into pages while retaining the same functionality as the original forms.
Basic conversion rules (built into the tool) assume that the user interface and code on the form are compliant with the standard application development guidelines.
The tool identifies deviations from the guidelines that may result in missing user interface (UI) elements or functionality of the original form. The tool logs these deviations for manual consideration.
If the rules for modifying the page UI are generic to all pages, then the tool incorporates them into the tool mapping logic. The tool regards rules that represent “manual” decisions about certain user experience (UX) behavior, layout, and business logic as additional input. You define this additional input manually.
Form Transformation enables you to:
– Transform forms to pages (basic transformation)
– Tailor resulting pages for the RoleTailored client (UX transformation)
Form-to-page transformation is a basic transformation process that takes form objects from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic application and creates page objects that you can use in the RoleTailored client.
