Getting Started for Administrators

Overview

Microsoft introduced a new feature with Dynamics NAV 2015 which makes it easy and inexpensive for partners and end users to create and customize visually attractive document reports in NAV using Microsoft Word.

In collaboration with Microsoft, Jet Reports developed Jet Express for Word – an application that supports this process by providing users an easy-to-use interface inside Microsoft Word to create and modify these documents.

Jet Express for Word includes four NAV reports and a set of sample sales documents.

These four NAV reports include:

 Report Number Name
14125500 Sales Order – Jet. Ex. Word
14125501 Sales Invoice – Jet. Ex. Word
14125502 Sales Cr. Memo – Jet. Ex. Word
14125503 Sales Quote – Jet. Ex. Word

Installing these reports in NAV

These four reports are included in a .FOB file which is available from the Jet Express for Word website.

To install this .FOB file you will need access and permissions to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment.

In this application select File > Import… and browse to find the downloaded .fob file.
