Quite a few people have asked that we excavate the guidance for how to upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 directly to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015. We provided this guidance in the blog post for Cumulative Update 1, but as time progresses, this becomes harder to remember and to find. So here you go:
The Recurring General Journal window in Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Navision) is used to post transactions that recur with few or no changes to G/L, bank, customer, vendor and fixed assets accounts. In a recurring general journal, you enter the relevant information for the transaction, such as the posting date, amount and the accounts to which you want to post. You also enter information that tells NAV about how often the transaction is posted. You can also specify automatic reversal the day after the posting date and allocate an amount among several accounts. The information you enter in a journal is temporary and can be changed until you post the journal.
The components needed to upgrade data directly from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 are now available for download.
Download the upgrade toolkit from PartnerSource or from CustomerSource.
In order to use the toolkit to upgrade data from Microsoft Dynamics 2009 R2 or Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1, you will also need the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 development environment and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2.
Sometimes we need to run some specific object (page, report, codeunit or xmlport) on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Role Tailored Client. Let say we want to test report received from customer on our Cronus demo db.
The easiest way is of course to run report directly from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Development Environment Object Designer. However, if we have few client versions on our pc then this way could be impossible
Normally you need to have an Active directory server running to use multi-tier of NAV 2009 R2. But in some cases this is not possible or existing. In NAV 2009 R2 we got an new configuration option called ClientCredentialType that is meant to be used over WAN.
