Using Export-NAVApplicationObject to export e.g. codeunits from a database on Azure SQL fails

Has anyone succeeded in exporting objects from a database that is hosted on Azure SQL?

(I can get it to work from a database installed on a sql server on e.g. the same server. There I can omit user/pass/server because its on the default sql instance.)


I use this powershell command:

Export-NAVApplicationObject -DatabaseName mydb -Path C:\export\codeunit80-84.fob -DatabaseServer -Username dbadmin -Password password -Filter 'Type=Codeunit;Id=80..84' -LogPath C:\export

the dbadmin user is the primary one created with the azure sql server so has full rights to every database.

I'm exporting from a demo cronus NAV2016 DB, using a server with DAN (danish) set as keyboard layout.


When running the command I get the popup box with the following text and just an OK button to press.

'No' er ikke en valgmulighed.

Følgende indstillinger er tilgængelige:

Nej, Ja


and the error message in the console after pressing OK:

Export-NAVApplicationObject : !
