ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest – vol 97

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.

More on Extensions from Saurav (see Dev Digest vol 96):

Although Extensions and Events are technically different, there are differences:

1. Extensions cannot be created without Events and Subscriptions.

2. Extensions give you a choice of how you want to ship your customization (Traditional way / Delta files).

3. Extensions are more about shipping and deploying custom solutions, whereas Events and Subscriptions are to keep the base code clean.

Saurav Dhyani on Pasting Rows:

In NAV 2016, if you don't see a Paste Row Option in a Page as shown in attached image, then change source table property "PasteIsValid" to TRUE.
