Welcome to the Dynamics SL Support and Services Blog. This new blog is designed to provide you the insights, knowledge and challenges that our support engineers tackle every day.
Customizations have “versions”. The newest version is 6.
If you upgrade to 2011 FP1, then export customizations that haven’t been updated to version 6 yet, you won’t be able to re-import the CST you just created. You will get an event log like this:
System Message 5016: Operation aborted, data is not formatted correctly. Data
row contents: Source: 0.
To get around this:
(As always, have a good backup of your environment before making any changes)
1 – export the customization, but don’t check the “export VBA as source” checkbox
2 – edit the file and remove the “Source: 0” line(s)
Then you can re-import
export out of the pre-FP1 system
Force SL to upgrade it to version 6 first:
1 – run the following in SQL:
update CustomVBA set Version=Version+1000 where Version<1000
2 – open each customize screen and close
*at this point, the version should update to 6
3 – now export the customization
