My endnote on Directions EMEA 2009

The hotel was nice. Better than in Paris. Most of us there had a room where you had to walk a long way to reach it dealing with a labyrinth of hallways to reach the room. This hotel was a lot easier to navigate.
The only problem I found was to get some electricity in the […]

After the tour the went to eat in the VIP-lounge (if I understood [and remember] correctly).
And then back to […]

Upgrading reports from 5.0 to NAV 2009 by Dmitry Chadaev

Creating a complex report: most time goes in layout and coding. The transformation tool flattens all the dataitems of a report. E.g. an invoice with a dataitem for the header, a dataitem for the lines and a dataitem for the […]
