If there is something that changes in NAV every few releases, is how we backup and restore data (be that full backup, application data, companies data) between NAV databases.
Recently I was asked how is this done in NAV 2016.
The answer is simple and is applicable to both NAV 2015 and NAV 2016:
Let’s assume the following case. A bug was reported by a customer. You want to have access to his production environment, but many times that’s not possible. One way is to do a SQL backup of customer’s database. That assumes you will have at least backup rights on their database server. Many times that’s not possible. But you probably have access to NAV.
Let’s try to export company data with powershell cmdlets:
To export/import data via C/AL code check EXPORTDATA and IMPORTDATA functions:
Msdn EXPORTDATA and Msdn IMPORTDATA
For a sample of how to use these 2 functions, check the code in pages 9900, 9901 in W1.
