Using RapidStart in Dynamics NAV for importing and exporting data is really easy. However, every now and again, I get the question: How do I import my opening balance with more that the two global finance dimensions?
Overview One of the powerful tools in the old Navision classic client was the ability to do a Find/Replace. For example, if you wanted to change the Salesperson Code on the Customer Card from one value to another, just go to the field you want and click on Find, then Replace.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 (Navision) includes several batch jobs that are provided to help in the transfer of legacy account balances to a newly configured company. You can easily import data for the customer journal, the vendor journal, the item journal, and the G/L journal by using RapidStart. The first step is to create a configuration package that includes the setup tables for those journals.
I’m sure you’ve heard it by now, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 is set for release in October 2013. That is great news – just one year after the initial release of NAV 2013. This has given the NAV team time to improve the application and listen to customers and partners requests and suggestions for enhancements. – See more at: http://www.partnerpowerinternational.com/blog/category/solutions/dynamics-nav/#sthash.eSzXm8Cy.dpuf
Once your customer has agreed to a Microsoft Dynamics NAV implementation, they immediately start to look for a return on their investment. RapidStart is designed to help meet customer expectations for a faster time to value by simplifying the configuration of Microsoft Dynamics NAV – but, ISV add-ons can add complexity to the project – especially if the setup process is not managed in the same way as the rest of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV product.
