All around NAV dev and test
One of those multiple choice questions I pose to my students at the start of each day during a Solution Development training.
What would be the right answer? Of course you're free to test it in NAV, but first give it a try "from the bare head".
Codeunit 50000:OnRun()ERROR('Internal error');
Codeunit 50001:OnRun()IF CODEUNIT.RUN(50000) THEN ERROR('An error occurred');
Which error will occur when codeunit 50001 is being executed?
Naggy me again.
Today I am working on the registration of a new add-on module. So I need to set the End User List Price. First time ever, for me. Never to old to learn. As a comment on the "Microsoft Dynamics® NAV Add-On Module Request Form" says:
To calculate the base currency, please locate the pricing multiplier on your local Dynamics NAV pricelist ...
Let's not disturb my colleagues and see if I can get around on the Internet. OK, where to go first? Of course: PartnerSource. After entering my Live ID and choosing the right company (yes, I am listed for 3 different "companies"), I populate the search box with the string "Dynamics NAV pricelist" and press enter resulting in a list of results that seem to make sense. I click on the third result link saying:
Notice of Licensing and Pricing Changes to Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Opening this page ...
... and simultaneously popping up an alert:
Yasseah, I am asked again to give feedback. Don't let this chance slip away, dude! Clicking Yes I am wondering whether or not a survey will start, because many times before it halted somewhere. But no need to fear question 1 opens up for me which I willingly answer:
Being fearless right now I click Next Question:
Ouch, once again my prejudice has been met: many times the PartnerSource surveys die somewhere on the run. And no way to get rid of the this screen, but close the internet browser.
Why is MS asking me to help improve PartnerSource/CustomerSource if I cannot complete a survey?
Just one selfish note to make my live easier next time I need to chat with an Operations Professional.
You might recall this naggy blog post of mine, written almost 2 years ago. As you can read in my personal comment I am happy I did write that post as it enabled me last June to easily do the same "trick". Today however I found out it did not help me very much in effectively start a chat with an Operations Professional. So here I put my steps list of how to get "straight" to that. So there's for sure one guy who's happy with this post.
Simple, but it took me quite some while before I got it figured out again. It surely wasn't the first time I had to do this.
After my bombardment of posts in June and July, before I left for vacation, I have been very silent out here. Almost two months now. Heads up!
But it might even take somewhat longer as I have been "head down". For those who are somehow connected to me on the social media this possibly has been a recognizable image of me: "Taliban Luc" as someone called it.
The day after I somehow had managed to drop the back of my head on the corner of the sideboard in our French house. Wounded and in shock, an ambulance brought me to the nearest by hospital (in St. Affrique, 40 km away), where they stitched, or rather cramped, and bandaged me. My dear wife and two youngest children, shocked as they were, followed somewhat later as they were not allowed to join me on the ambulance. And (still) no recollection at all of all that happened in the approx. 9 hours the followed my 'crash'. OK, there are some static memories ("pictures") of that period like nurses - my age and red dyed hair - and infusion tubes
Around noon we were back in our house. Laying down on our sofa memories are back again, feeling like I woke up from a dream with confusing images. Thankful I stayed on the sofa the rest of the week. Thankful for the unconditional love of my wife and children, thankful it was only a concussion that I had to recover from - and 6 weeks later am still recovering from -, thankful for the very nice weather we were experiencing; thankful for the fact that this happened after we had visited Xavi and Mireia in Banyoles, Catalonia, and I did win Ticket-to-Ride. And of course thankful that we weren't hit by the wildfires around Fiqueras - we were very close to that - and could drive "home".
So now I am getting back on the trail again. Not yet writing, but hopefully around in Antwerp at the end of the month.
And sure this looks much better, doesn't it?
