I’m sorry to say, but I am definitely joining this “not normal” party, ‘cause there is something strange going on with NAV, and I believe there will soon be either a SP(how does NAV 2009 R2 SP1 sounds?), or a series of hotfixes.
Today I’ve delivered the brown bag session Connecting to NAV through Web services as a part of Microsoft’s “Dynamics Brown Bag Sessions” initiative for Central and Eastern Europe. The session was attended by a great number of partners from the region, and I say a big THANK YOU to everyone attending. I hope it was worth your time.
I would also like to thank to Almut Tadsen, Microsoft Dynamics Evangelist at Microsoft and the organizer of the Brown Bag Session series for giving me this opportunity. I’m looking forward to participating in this initiative again.
If you were there today, I would appreciate if you could take a minute and leave a comment here, letting me (and everyone else) if this was a time well invested for you. Thanks!
I’m growing increasingly impatient as the progress bar on my File Transfer Manager is approaching 100%. Behind the cryptical download title—Dynamics.NAV60R2.HR.1097366.DVD.zip—hides the much awaited Microsoft Dynamics 2009 R2 HR (Croatian) release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Microsoft’s DPE team in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) has started organizing a so called brown bag sessions for NAV developers, as a part of developing a Microsoft Dynamics Community in the region. As a part of this initiative, I will deliver a brown bag session tomorrow at 9:30 AM (CET) titled “Connecting to NAV through Web services”.
Sessions are delivered through Live Meeting and are by-invitation only, so if you want to participate you must be an employee of a Microsoft partner company in CEE region. If you haven’t got an invitation, and you are entitled to participate, please contact your local Dynamics lead at Microsoft (or Partner Account Manager) and ask them to send you the link.
A bug or a feature? Sometimes it’s hard to tell for sure.
Web services are a fantastic tool in NAV, however, they do not always behave exactly as you would expect them to. There is one particularly annoying behavior, which just after you get used to it starts getting even stranger.
So, setting any numeric value during the Create method call on any page web service will have no effect, and the only way to set a value in a numeric field would be through a subsequent call to Update method.
