ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest – vol 59

The ArcherPoint technical staff—made up of developers, project managers, and consultants—is constantly communicating internally, with the goal of sharing helpful information with one another.

ArcherPoint’s technical staff pose questions, find answers, and share new discoveries about Microsoft Dynamics NAVAs they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them companywide on Yammer for everyone’s benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this group—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share them with the rest of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Community? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from the ArcherPoint staff. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Question on Rapid Start and import validation:

I'm importing bins using Rapid Start and the import validates. When I apply, I get this error:

Zone Code must have a value in Bin: Location Code=MAIN, Code=01-001-01. It cannot be zero or empty.

There is a valid Zone Code in every record in the file imported. Any ideas what I'm missing here?

Tom Hunt: It's validating something else and then that's causing a blank Zone Code value to be validated as well, probably because Zone Code hasn't been written yet. Try writing Zone Code earlier in the process (if you can). Or you can try to use the debugger to find the chain of validations that's triggering this error.

Google+ update:

Do you have a Google+ languishing unattended without an update in ages? You’re not alone.

Remember when Google hijacked your YouTube channel with a Google+ account you may or may not have asked for? Google (thankfully?) has decided that users will not require a Google+ account in order to have access to Google’s suite of products.
