NAV Reports Training Course

Writing Reports in Dynamics NAV (1 Day Course)


Reports play an important role in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. They can print information from a database and they can structure and summarise information. Reports can also include calculations or expressions. Reports are used to print documents such as invoices and to process data without printing anything.

This one day course is designed for those who are preparing to create or modify reports in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV. The course primarily provides explanation of the reporting features and the design of RDLC reports. If you are interested in the Word Report design, please see course DC140 – NAV Report Word Layouts.
