While I was going along with one of our customers, there was a requirement that they need to Save setting for a specific Filter selection. I went through Dynamics NAV to figure out how to make this solution. By Going to Report Setting from the search.
Often when we work in Dynamics NAV, we use the same filters and settings over and over again. You might have a customer list that you pull to review every month, or a set of invoices you need to print to PDF weekly, or a set of GL accounts in our Chart of Accounts that you frequently use, and for all of them you have to enter the filters each time.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 introduces another way to get your work done faster with the ability to save settings for reports. This means that if you run a report with different filter settings in it, you can save those settings and retrieve them when you print the report. No more having to fill in the settings you want on the report every time you run the report.
Let’s Start with Error Message that system is generating, when we configure Report with Save As Excel in NAS –
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server attempted to issue a client callback to download a file: Book1.xlsx (Codeunit 419 File Management). Client callbacks are not supported on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.
Default reports of Microsoft Dynamics NAV will save the request page values and allow the user to modify them in the next run of the report. However when a developer develop a new report it will not save the last run value of the request page. I saw few threads in the Dynamics NAV community forum regarding this.
