Second post in the „Doing Power BI the Right Way“ series. In a business intelligence solution, data must be shaped and transformed. Your data is rarely, if ever, going to be in the right format for analytic reporting. Continue reading →

Announcing three new Microsoft Certifications for Business Applications


This is an intro post to the Error Message Mgt. codeunit and related objects. NAV has never brilliant when it comes to error handling, for a couple of reasons. The error messages themselves sometimes leave a lot to be desired The whac-a-mole nature of fixing multiple errors by finding one at a time and attempting […]

This is a quick post for giving a response to a question that comes out in our latest Microsoft’s webcast about creating cloud-based workflows for Dynamics 365 Business Central. In this training I’ve talked a lot about the „When an HTTP request is received“ action in Power Automate (and on Azure Logic Apps too) and […]

Business Central Virtual Event

Konnte gestern etwas in den Event reinschauen:

Data - Marc
