ExportObjects

Exports objects from the specified database.

finsql.exe command=exportobjects, file=<exportfile>, [servername=<server>,] [database=<database>,] [logfile=<path and filename>,] [filter=<filter>,] [username=<username>,] [password=<password>,] [ntauthentication=<yes|no|1|0>]

Parameters

file

The path and file name to which you export objects. This parameter is required. You can export objects to one of the following file types:

  • .txt

  • .fob

You specify the file type by the file name extension in the file parameter.

servername

The name of the database server on which you want to run the command. The format of this parameter is <computername>\<database server instance>.

If you do not specify both the servername and the database parameter, then the database server and database that are stored in the fin.zup file are used.

Hh166064.note(en-us,NAV.70).gifNote
When you first specify a database server and database to open, either from a command at a command prompt or from a client, the database server and database are stored in the fin.zup file. By default, the fin.zup file is located at C:\users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\.

If you do not specify the servername parameter but you do specify the database parameter, then the Open Database window opens so that you can specify the database server name.

Hh166064.Tip(en-us,NAV.70).gifTip
To view the name of the server on which the current database is stored, on the File menu, choose Database, and then choose Information. Use the value of the Database Server field for the servername parameter.

database

The database in which the objects that you want to export are stored.

If you do not specify both the servername and the database parameter, then the database server and database that are stored in the fin.zup file are used.

logfile

The path and file name for the file that contains error messages that result from the command. If there are no errors, then a log file is not created.

By default, the file is named naverrorlog.txt and is located in the same location as finsql.exe.

The navcommandresult.txt file, which contains information about the success or failure of the command, is created in the folder that is specified by the logfile parameter.

When you run finsql.exe with a command, the previous log file and result file are deleted.

Hh166064.note(en-us,NAV.70).gifNote
If User Access Control (UAC) is turned on and you do not specify to run the command prompt window as Administrator, then the command prompt window runs as a standard user. In this case, if you do not specify the logfile parameter, then the command fails because the standard user cannot write to the default location of the log file.

filter

A filter on the Object table. Use the filter parameter to specify which objects to compile. Use a semicolon to separate multiple filters. The only operator that you can use in the filter is '='. The following table shows the fields in the Object table on which you can filter.

Object table field Values Example

Type

Table, Codeunit, Page, Report, XMLport, Query

Type=Table|Page

ID

Integer or range of integers

ID=50000..50500

Name

Any valid object name

"Name=Cost Entry"

Modified

yes, no, 1, 0

Modified=yes

Compiled

yes, no, 1, 0

Compiled=0

Date

Date, in the numeric format determined by your regional settings

"Date=12/1/2012"

Time

Time, in the numeric format determined by your regional settings

"Time=12:00:00"

Version List

Any valid version

"Version List=NAVW17.00"

Caption

Any valid caption

"Caption=Company Information"

Locked

Yes, no, 1, 0

Locked=1

Locked By

Domain\username

"Locked By=CRONUS\viktor"

If you do not specify a filter, then all objects in the Object table are included.

username

The user name to use to authenticate to the database. The user name must exist in the database. If you do not specify a user name and password, then the command uses the Windows user name and password of the current user to authenticate to the database.

Hh166064.note(en-us,NAV.70).gifNote
If User Access Control (UAC) is turned on, and you do not specify to run the command prompt window as Administrator, then the command prompt window runs as a standard user. In this case, if you do not specify the username parameter, then even if the current Windows user is an Administrator, the command is run as the standard user.

If you specify the username parameter, then you must also specify the password parameter and the ntauthentication parameter must be no.

For more information about database users and permissions, see Setting Database Owner and Security Administration Permissions.

password

The password to use with the username parameter to authenticate to the database. If you do not specify a user name and password, then the command uses the Windows user name and password of the current user to authenticate to the database.

ntauthentication

Specifies whether to use NT authentication. The possible values are yes, no, 1, or 0. If you specify the username and password parameters, then you must specify ntauthentication=no or ntauthentication=0.

You use the ExportObjects command with the finsql.exe from a command prompt. Finsql.exe is the executable file that runs the development environment. By default, finsql.exe is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\70\RoleTailored Client\.

To export objects to a .txt file, you must have a developer license. To export objects to a .fob file, you can have either an end-user license or a developer license.

You can specify parameters in any order.

This example shows how to run a command to export all queries in a given ID range, using the specified user name and password.

finsql.exe command=exportobjects, file=C:\QueryExport.txt, servername=TestComputer01\NAVDEMO, database="Demo Database NAV (7-0)", filter="Type=Query;ID=50001..50010", username=dbadmin, password=P@ssword, ntauthentication=no, logfile=C:\QueryExportLog.txt,
