How to enable the Dynamics NAV 2017 Outlook add-in?

Recently I saw this Youtube video by Steven Renders about how to configure the Outlook Add-in for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017. In this 6-minute video Steven shows what is needed to install the Dynamics NAV 2017, but nowhere is being explained how to get the add-in to work in Outlook.

Amount must not be 0 in Gen. Journal Line (Dynamics NAV 2016)

In Recurring Journals if you have a line set up where there is no value to post this month and you attempt to post you will receive the following error:

Amount must not be 0 in Gen. Journal Line Journal Template Name = (name of your template), Journal Batch Name = (name of your journal batch), Line No = (Line No. where you have the zero amount)

To get round this you do not need to delete the line(s). You can filter out the zero line as follows:

  1. Click on the little blue arrow at the top left of the page
  2. Click “Filter Pane”
  3. Select “Amount” in the Filter box that just appeared
  4. Enter a filter saying “not equal to zero” (‘<> 0’)

This will allow you to post the journal, when posted the Posting Date of the line that was zero (that was filtered out) will not have moved onto the next month.  Just amend this manually.

I LOVE ONENOTE! And I will tell you why! In my profession as a consultant I need to gather data all the time. At meetings, when I’m on the phone, during a webinar, at a training course and/or especially when I’m at a customer site. I take notes and capture as much data as possible in every way possible. I make notes, write minutes, take pictures, make videos, write on whiteboards or flipovers… And I do it all with OneNote.

Here are five awesome things I bet you probably did not know about OneNote!
