Business Central Spring 2019 Update (BC14) CU12 TearDown

Cumulative Update 12 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central April'19 on-premises (Application Build 14.13.42648, Platform Build 14.13.42627)

This cumulative update is rather small one, but it has some quirks I decided to blog about.

First some warnings

If you have too new version of Report Viewer, you will receive error:

To upgrade reports, you must have Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Report builder installed.

I already had this installed, so I uninstalled, downloaded a fresh copy from and reinstalled it.

This did not help, so I installed the report builder3 from BC14 install cd, and it did the trick and I was able to continue with the update.

Then some statistics.

The ChangeLog text file is only 285 kb heavy, and it contains total 80 changed objects marked with “NAVW114.13”, and no new ones when we compare the import sheet to previous CU. Most of the changes are located on pages and tables.

MS has continued their standard way of releasing CU’s so that this release has translations for the new features that were released in previous CU. This of course helps a bit when there is no English captions, descriptions and tooltips happily mixed with localized texts.

New fields

Tables 21 Cust. Ledger entry,  t112 Sales Invoice Header, t274 Bank Acc. Reconciliation Line, t1208 Direct Debit Collection Entry, t1248 Ledger Entry Matching Buffer, t5992 Service Invoice Header now have a new field Payment Reference [Code:50]. This is used to keep track on European economy area payments. These fields are used in various codeunits where payment matching is processed.

This probably means that Finnish customization of field 32000000 Reference No. [Code:20] is going to get obsolete soon enough. Good riddance!

New functions

Pages 306 Report Selection – Sales, p524 Report Selection – Reminder, p5932 Report Selection – Service now have new function to properly initialize report selections for Reports. The new function name is InitUsageFilter.


Finally, due to COVID-19 pandemic, MIBUSO NAV Techdays is rescheduled to 2021. Bummer! I was already looking forward to see all fellow NAV/BC tech enthusiasists in Antwerp, but of course we have to go security and health first.
Stay safe and healthy!
