Extending Report Id Range In Object Designer

vikashvikash Member Posts: 38
Hello Experts,

In our Nav 4.0 we have a list of all reports which can be modified between the range 50001 to 50099 apart from other already existing reports.

When we try to create a new report say with id 50101, the program does not accept the id as it is out of range.

Since all ids have already been used between 50001 to 50099, we cannot create any new reports.

How do we extend the range? Say we want to to run up to 52000, how to proceed?

thanks & Rgds

    You have to purchase more reports through your solution center.

    I've also noticed that some of my original reports are no longer needed so I'll delete some old reports and reuse those numbers.

    Also using a third party program like Cyrstal Reports, Jet Reports, Etc allows you to create unlimited reports.

    US Pricing for additinal reports is

    $20 for one report or $800 for a block of 100 report.

    If you buy another block its range will be 50100-50199

    You do still have one report available to use

    report number 50000 sounds like you didn't use that one.

    I don't know how popular the 3rd party reporting programs are but $20 a report? MS can Kiss My @$$.

    Standard CR is only $195 & professional $495 in which you can create unlimited reports.
    I wonder why such a high price :-k
    Maybe if it was $1 I would understand It's not like they are creating the report too. They are just giving you more #'s to use.

    That's how I feel & I'm sticking with it 8-[

    I agree it doesn't make a lot of since,

    the report designer license only cost $800 and it comes with the first 100 reports range 50000 - 50099

    Then they want another $800 just for additional reports.

    If I remember correctly, I believe it comes with 10 reports not 100.

    No 10 is for tables. Reports come in blocks of 100, just like forms, dataports and codeunits.

    Thanks. I hope they'll remove the reporting price, it does sound expensive.

    your almost forced to buy the bundle
    - it's a huge difference between $20 a report & $8

    Strange is that when we got the new Business Ready licensing, that Microsoft did not use that opportunity to address the Object issue. The reason may be that they need to decide what to do for 5 and have been waiting. In DOS you paid for tables only, and all other objects were free, and the current pricing structure was introduced when they went to windows, and has not changed in 10 years. We are now seeing a push for SQL reporting services, and the new 3 tier client will handle forms differently, so I would guess that object pricing will change next version to accomodate this. BUT look at database pricing. When they got rid of that, it did not make the system cheaper, it just averaged it all out, and the cost was moved somewhere else. So in the end you are going to pay for it, it just depends where.

    In the end its important to look at total cost of owner ship.

    Yes I agree, such as SQL server cost extra.
    What customer like though is that they want to pay upfront instead of later.

    Yes, but the customer also does not want to pay for something they don't need. Something they may want now probably didn't even cross their minds a while back.

    Very few client installations require addition block of 100 reports other than the one provided by the report designer.

    If the customer is complex enough to require an additional block of 100 reports, from my experience, they don't complain about a measily $800. In fact, they think it's cheap!
