    ZUP = 'Zee Users Preferences', non?

    This file contains 'user preferences'... The last database/server connection; the last company opened; the size, screen position and current record for every form/report you have ever run; etc, etc.

    When you get the 'do you want to replace' question, that mean that you started one instance of Navision, then started a second instance, closed the second instance (which saved updated settings from the second instance), and then when you close the first instance, Navision noticed that the zup file has been updated since the first instance started, and asks whether you wish the saved settings from the second instance should be 'replaced' with the setting changes from the first instance.

    Clear as mud, non?

    No!
    ZUP = Z-Up = Set-Up
    So mentioned on a training in 1997.

    For the Yanks that don't know... the pronounciation for Z in the Queen's English is 'Zed', so 'Z-Up' is pronounced 'Zed-Up', not 'Zee-Up' :mrgreen:

    I just call it "zup", like "zup", pronounced "zup", said "zup", like it is written: "zup"...

    Because I linked the best looking description of a ZUP file to a recent topic that asked the very question "what is a zup file's purpose?" :D

    I think you'll find he was being sarcastic (good way to remember it though!)....
