    This one is horribly pervasive...

    How about:

    You realize that they changed all the shortcut keys in NAV 2009 and wonder if an insanity defense would be solid in the event you ever met the person who signed off on that at MS and murdered them.

    Now that I've read the whole thread, honorable mention to F8 to copy from above in Excel and Alt+F1 in Outlook

    As for writing macros in Excel to emulate the insert and delete rows? I am a dork, and you are my king!

    end your phrases in documentations with a semicolon instead of a fullstop ](*,)

    When you use F11 in Word to check spelling :mrgreen:
    Better to be critical then self-critical :)

    you are in the middle of the development of a request page/form, you declare some variables, you have write a dozen lines of code, you hit F11 and nav crashes... :evil: :evil:
    i got so angry when it happens that after redoing the modification and rewriting my code, i save without compile and then hit f11. at that point there will probably be a typo in the naming of the variable and nav crashes again...
    Then, i start to insult nav with phrases like "who is the b*****d now?!?!F**k!!ahahah!!" (in italian), because i saved the program before compiling it...

    When error comes in any other application and try to press "Ctrl + C" to copy it and paste it to Notepad !!!

    (Many times when I am getting unknown error message in Navision, most of the time I am pressing press "Ctrl + C" in Naivision and "Ctrl + V" in Notepad. And then searching error message part in Mibuso :D )

    Me too. May be it is good idea to create application, which will automatically take the text, extract the main message and search it on mibuso automatically... :idea:

    When you know the object ids and can describe keystroke for keystroke over the phone, without even looking at the screen, how to do a modification to someone who doesn't know how to write C/AL. :lol:

    Just off topic, but connected my previous post: there is the app for you... http://code.google.com/p/theartofnav/do ... p&can=2&q=

    Just run it, if there is some error in NAV on screen for some time, it will show you balloon with it and if you click it, it will search mibuso for you (or you can search from context menu directly too).

    Very nice, I've put a link on msdynamics.de for this. Can be used to search other phpBB-forums too. :)

    When you count the number of times the same set of Navision code will be recursively loaded into memory before it crashes!
    (was 73 - somebody entered and backed out the same lot more than 73 times, which Navision costing logic was not equipped to handle)

    when you get this compiling error and start laughing like a fool :mrgreen:
    Type conversion is not possible because 1 of the operators contains an invalid type.

    When you write
    MESSAGE('%1',ISSERVICETIER);
    
    in NAV versions below 2009.


    In NAV 5.0 & 5.0 SP1, the result is, surprisingly enough,
    No
    In NAV 4.0 SP3, the result is, as expected,
    You have specified an unknown variable.

    ISSERVICETIER

    Define the variable under 'Global C/AL symbols'.

    I tried to download navision 1.00.B and i found that it contains only an fdb file.
    I said: let's open it with my nav2009r2 and see what happens
    The database cannot be opened by this version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic. The database has already been converted by a newer version.

    You must upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic to open the database.

    When you start downloading way too old versions of NAV just to see what you'd get :mrgreen:

    1.00 had a major problem with how options were handled, so to move from 1.0 to 1.1 you had to back up restore. And you had to then run a program to fix up the options.
