This is a simple tool for transferring and comparing customized, Dynamics NAV objects, from the Development
to the Test and Production environments. It can be used by Customers and Developers alike.
For Customers, this will simplify the learning curve and make it easier to transfer development objects to the
Production environment, without having to involve their Microsoft Partners, when testing is complete. It will retain the
versions to allow customers to easily revert should there be a problem with the change. They do
not need to use the NAV Development Environment but it does need to be installed on their system. They do not
need the Object Development license to move or restore objects, however, the code comparison feature will require it.
For Developers, this can save them a tremendous amount of time when moving modifications from the Development to the
Test environments, especially when the changes involve multiple objects. On average, it can take 20-30 seconds to export
the object from the development environment, switch to, then import into the test environment. That's for each object,
and it must be in the right order as well. If, for example, a new field or function was added to a table or codeunit
and is subsequently referenced by a page or even another table or codeunit, an import will result in an error if the
objects were not imported in the right order. This means the developer must switch back, import the required object,
then re-import the affected object. Imagine having to do this multiple times, throughout the day, when coding and
When modifying multiple objects, it's easy to lose track of the objects that need to be transferred. With this tool, developers can
quickly and easily tell what needs to be transfered by using the Date Mismatched filter.
