ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest – vol 89

ArcherPoint’s technical staff pose questions, find answers, and share new discoveries about Microsoft Dynamics NAV

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.

As 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.

Saurav Dhyani on Language Parameters in NAV 2016 - Data Migration Step 2:

The main problem with the Start-NAVDataUpgrade cmdlet is that it has no language parameter, like the Invoke-NAVCodeunit cmdlet does. It just runs in en-US language mode. I have tested if the Services Language setting in the NAV server settings would change this. Unfortunately that was not the case.

Warning: Data Upgrade process in NAV 2016 runs Codeunit 2 automatically

Dan Sass shared an article on company culture:

A company’s culture is becoming as important as the company’s brand itself – in fact, many consider it an extension of the brand. But it can’t be just words. When employees truly embrace company culture, the result can be perceived by the company’s clients.

From the article:

To create a winning culture, it is not enough to have or recognize cultural artifacts or to shape how people feel, think, and act based on internal criteria. Rather, a winning culture ensures that people feel, think, and act consistently with promises made to customers and other key stakeholders.

The authors go on to provide three steps to achieving a winning culture.

Question on whether an order has been Completely Shipped:

Question: I have been working with a client to determine which fields to use in order to determine if an order is completely shipped. The most appropriate field is "Completely Shipped". We are having an issue with it though and I was wondering if anyone has seen anything like this before....

The Completely Shipped field shows as Yes in the Sales Order list, but No in the Sales Order About This Page zoom. I also looked at the Sales Header Table, and the field is Yes. How is this possible?

Suresh Kulla: That is because the completely shipped field is a FlowField and that About This Page will not display the FlowField values; instead it displays the default value of the data type.
