Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 introduced the concept of interactive column sorting on list pages such as Sales Lines or the Chart of Accounts. This is a very handy feature, but at times, an errant click can send the data into a sort that you can’t get back to unless you close the page and re-open it. For example, the default Sort on Sales Order lines is “Document Type,” “Document No.,” “Line No.,” and since “Line No.” isn’t by default displayed, you can’t get back to the default sort.
In this edition of post, let me show you some of the interactive features of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 reports
NAV 2013 R2 reports can be pretty interactive in terms of –
•Drilling down to detailed data
•Toggling the visibility of any field [say image] based on user action.
Visual studio report designer enables reports to be interactive with its end users. We can let the end users sort data on the report and print it as per their choice.
In this post, I would like to explain how to add interactive sorting capability to your reports in Dynamics NAV.
