ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest - vol 66

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.

Faithie Robertson on TWO VERSIONS of Bank Reconciliation in NAV 2015:

There are TWO VERSIONS of Bank Reconciliation possible in 2015. For the full scoop, read the article linked below. But for the short version – which type of reconciliation you do is determined by the “Bank Recon. With Auto. Match” field on the General Ledger Setup page. (If you don’t see the field, you will need to have it added to the page.)

If the field is checked, you get the new version of reconciliations, which uses page 379. If not, you will use the old “Bank Reconciliation Worksheet” page 10120.

“Bank Recon. With Auto. Match” field on the General Ledger Setup page determines which version of the Bank Reconciliation you will see

One important note in the link below is this:

“Note: For new installations of Dynamics NAV 2015, the Bank Recon. With Auto Match check box will be selected by default. For upgraded installations, the check box is not selected, meaning that the existing North American feature is used.

Note: When upgrading and changing to the Bank Recon. with Auto Match feature, the history created with NA Bank Rec. feature is stored and made available from the navigation pane.
The Bank Acc. Reconciliations page is the same for both features. If the Bank Recon. with Auto. Match check box is selected, the Bank Acc. Reconciliation page (379) opens when the users chooses New in the Bank Acc. Reconciliations page. If the check box is not selected, the Bank Rec. Worksheet page (10120) open.“

Question: How many users should optimally be on a NAV 2013 service tier?

Brian Winfrey: The practical maximum is 175-200. The service tier is 64-bit and multi-threaded so increasing performance using hardware means more/faster CPUs and more/faster RAM. We've seen overprovisioned virtual hosts and bad NIC drivers as the source of poor NST performance.

Michael Heydasch on error: “There is no Language within the filter”:

Came across this error when attempting to customize a chart: "There is no Language within the filter." I saw a similar error addressed in Platform Hotfixes for NAV 2013 Rollup 5 Build 35201 but Jones & Frank is on build 36919. The solution is ensure a Language record exists.
