What's New In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 Part V


Word Report Layouts

In previous versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you could only design the layout of reports by using Visual Studio Report Designer or Microsoft SQL Server Report Builder. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, you can design report layouts by using Microsoft Word 2013. Word report layouts are built on Word custom XML parts that dynamically map a report dataset into a report at runtime.Customizing and Managing Report Layouts from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Clients

You can customize Word and RDLC report layouts from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client by using Word 2013 and SQL Server Report Builder, respectively. This enables users can make variations of layouts, and then use the variations when viewing and printing reports as needed.
