  • Finding NAV 2015 MSDN Help - Let's Hope It Improves

    For ages Help has been the laughingstock of NAV. Many where evading the creation of it, even more were mocking about the content. For various reasons. With NAV 2009 MS has picked up this gauntlet in various ways: creating better and more valuable content, putting it online, providing us with easier to use tools, not in the least the help server that was released last year. Now with the release of NAV 2015 the next version of standard help has been put online. But it appears that it's still…

  • Running Help Servers Side-By-Side

    Digging myself into the new features in NAV 2015 I was referencing the Help and found myself looking at default page. My first thought was: Isn't there any help for this field? So I returned to the page and selected the upper left dropdown arrow (forgotten the term for it), Help , Microsoft Dynamkics NAV Help to see if there wasn't any help for the page. Nope. Same topic shown. Now looking a bit more closely I saw I wasn't looking at 2015 help at all. Didn't I install the NAV 2015 Help…

  • NAV 2015 Glance 4: New Functions are Local by Default?

    It is considered a general coding best practice to declare a function as being local. Over time you could see that the NAV Team was also adhering this, even though C/SIDE wasn't helping a lot on this as new functions would by default be global, i.e. the property Local would be <No> (or you might say undefined). Now with NAV 2015 any new function will get Local = Yes . Well, that's not always true I found out today by accident when writing my previous post . It appears to be depending on the Subtype…

  • Did You Have a Look at the C/AL Editor Status Bar Today?

    Well, I did and noticed something that has been there apparently for some time ... ... a year or so, since NAV 2013 R2. I surely had noticed that since then the C/AL editor shows the attributes. A simple but valuable feature that makes my live a lot easier. So, no, this is not what I wanted to address here - I recon you did read the title. Have a look: Maybe a bit to much. And now? The first part ... wasn't there before NAV 2013 R2. You can now easily see in what function…

  • This license is not compatible with this version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV - Misleading Message #1

    So today I sat down to get things prepared for my session at Directions EMEA 2014, next week. Not in the least because this week I had to install a new laptop, hence having to let go of everything that was there and proofed working alright at Directions US. Indeed somewhat tricky. Luckily everything got installed well and working, earlier on this week. Nothing really to worry about. NAV 2015 RTM NL was running and now I wanted to get a W1 database to put my things in. Having the W1 DVD at hand…
