NAV2013: How to convert a NAV2009 Database

Last week Rene Gayer posted how to technically convert a NAV 2009 database to NAV 2013.

Since this is a topic I already worked on, I asked him about a german translation for his post. He decided that his post is interessting for all NAV Developers and wrote it only in english.

For english people: http://www.dynamics-community.at/post/2012/09/06/NAV2013-How-to-convert-a-NAV-2009-Database-to-NAV-2013.aspx

I will post a german version of this how-to in my blog.

Did you know: Go to Defintion

Lately I got some really surprised developers, when I showed them or told them to us "Go to Definition".

It seems like this not so new feature is still not known to the nav development group.

If you know have a puzzled look, you may allow me to show you what there is.

Don't Know

Go to the customer table (18) and look into the contact-on validate trigger.

Here you find a line UpdateContFromCust.InserNewContactPerson(...

When you do a left-click onto the function name InsertNewContactPerson the context-menu shows Go to Definition.

When clicking on this Codeunit CustCont-Update (5056) is opened and shows the selected function.


Have fun trying it.
