Hi all,

I am creating a dataport to import Item,Customer and Vendor master.While creating the dataport, Is it necessary to validate all the fields or it is not necessary?

Kindly if anyone knows the correct way to do master data import using dataport, please let me know the correct step to design a dataport to import master datas.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
chandru.

    Hi Vijay_g,

    Validate calls the validate trigger of that respective field. Is it mandatory to use this one ?

    Kindly share your gmail/skype id.

    Thanks & Regards,

    i'd say so, too...but be aware that sometimes the validate trigger of some field, empties the value some other fields: be careful about the order of the validation of the fields.
    i usually validate everything on the first shot, and then i remove some validates if they're problematic

    Best for this is to ask consultant to show you how he will enter the data manually into the journal line and simulate the same behavior in code (same order of validations etc.)

    If I had to ask someone to migrate my data to NAV and this someone asks these questions on a public forum I would search for someone else.

    Don't get me wrong, everyone deserves a chance to learn.

    You can use the Data Migration tool that you'll find in Administration - Application Setup - Company Setup - Data Migration. System will automatically validate the Data.
