    Hi Umar,

    Welcome to Dynamics User Group!!!

    Start reading the MS Navision Manuals,Practice more the sample database and understand the business processes.



  • It would be good for you to know the basics of accounting. as far as Microsoft is concerned, they have certifications. 

    in NAV, a negative amount is a credit to a G/L account and a positive amount is a debit to a G/L account. if you have any accounting questions, you can always ask me. Smile 

    just so people know: 


    • assets and expenses are increased by a debit (or positive) amount.
    • liabilities and equity are increased by a credit (or negative) amount.
    • contra-asset accounts (for example, accumulated depreciation or allowance for bad debts) are increased by a credit (or negative) amount.
    • and the reverse to do the decrease.


    Also, compliments of Peter Muscat on slideshare.net, you might be able to find some training slides that could be helpful.

    Here is where Microsoft's certification info is found:



    PS: I just found out that my wife is pregnant! Big Smile

    Hey Umar,

    It is always good to have business process knowledge to build the logic using technical skill which  can make you different from technical consultant.

    I would recommend to have business process knowledge 

    All the BestSmile
