Report Auto Transformation Tool


GENERAL INFORMATION:

Based on our long experience in upgrading NAV to the latest versions we found out that a lot of time (sometime 40% of project) spent on report transformation. We decided to automate this

process first of all for our internal use. By the time after improvement tool including new features it was decided to share tool to NAV community.

Tool helps us to make transformation much easier and faster. The most of hand work is now automized. The only things developer left to do is to resolve conflicts which is not supported by NAV

2017 (Like Transfer Header/Footer).

OUTPUT:
