How many times has this happened to you…you are working in Dynamics NAV 2017 and ready to save the customer record you have been editing and NAV gives you an error message? It says it cannot save the record because that record is locked.
Two of the biggest complaints I hear from clients who are still on NAV versions prior to NAV 2013 are the headaches caused by table locks, and the time required to post sales orders. If you are one of those people suffering from either (or both) of these issues, keep reading, there is hope.
In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2, you can lock an object in Object Designer using Lock option. Along with Lock we have other options like Unlock and Force Unlock.
Along with these features you can automatically lock an object while opening the object in design mode.
This option is available in the Tools->Options->Auto-Lock on Design.
