Exporting a MenuSuite Object

Microsoft Dynamics Nav 2009

You can export a MenuSuite object in Microsoft Dynamics NAV object format (*.fob) or in text format. When you export a MenuSuite object in text format, the text file contains information about the changes that have been made to the object since the previous level. This topic shows an example of a text file which contains the changes that have been made to a MenuSuite object at the Company level. For more information about MenuSuite object levels, see Customizing a MenuSuite.

When an administrator makes configuration changes to a MenuSuite, these changes are saved at the Company level. When this Company-level MenuSuite object is exported in text format, the text file contains information about the changes that have been made to the object since the previous level, which in this case would be the Partner level. In the following example, an administrator has made the following changes to his company's menu suite:

  • In the Finance menu, deleted a menu group called Setup, which contained one menu item called Accounting Periods.

  • Added a new menu item, G/L Account Card, to the General Ledger menu group in the Finance menu.

  • Moved the G/L Account Card menu item so that it is placed between the Chart of Accounts and Bank Accounts menu items in the General Ledger menu group.

The text file contains the following information.

  }
