Error cumulative update 38 for NAV 2016

Posted on by UG Leader

My customer use NAV 2016 and have a bug. To resolve this, I'm must install the cumulative update 4 ( => id "377341". I But this update is not available. I 've download the update 38 ( But when i install the NAV.9.0.50785.FR.CUObjects.fob file i have a error message because 14 tables can't update. For exempe, when i update the table "311" i'have this message :


You're specidied a inconnu variable 

Prepmt. Auto Update Frequency

Define the variable in 'Global C/AL symbols'.


I think NAV can't update the tables to a problem licence beacause when a create this field in this table, i've a message to say that i hav'nt a autorized licence. But why ?  because i have a developper licence active ? and any table can be update (juste 14 table can't).

It's realy a licence problem or i have to do something else ? It's dangerous to update all object without this 14 tables ?

Thank you for your help !

    Thank you for your response,

    Yes, if I choice "Replace" option the update is ok and the field N° 33 "Prepmt. Auto Update Frequency" is created. I've the error if the option is "Merge: Existing<-New". But I must keep this option because the table have a specifique field for exemple N°50 000. The field 50 000 is deleted if I choice "replace" option and the data is lost.

    But is a good test because NAV can create the field N°33 also the licence is ok, not ?

    Thank you for your help !

    When you are importing are you using Replace Option?
