Hi,
I am an It person from a user company. It is a very small company with no partner because we can't offer to pay them.
I have the NAV database of BC 365 Spring (14), with data. I want to upgrade to D 365 BC wave (20). I have tried but it is giving an error at using the txt2al tool.
1. Please help me with these errors. it says DOTNET Compatibility is not there. even reinstall many times same Error.
2. Need simple steps to Upgrade with 10 extra tables to D365 BC 200

    Thanks for the suggestion,

    The link you have given is not addressing my issue.

    when I run txt2al it is just asking DOTNET compatible error. even if reinstall it gives the same error.  I was partner for Microsoft till recent time , now I have joined same user company

    I strongly recommend to to think twice before you start doing a BC migration on your own without any assistance from a partner.

    That could easily cost you more than the fee you would pay your partner.

    Maybe this can be of help: ?

    If not i think you at least needs to provide the complete error message you are getting.
