Dear Sir,

What is the correct procedure to use the COMPANYNAME instead of "Company.Name" in C/AL programming ?

In a scenario we'r using the COMPANYNAME in the Mail body and the "Company.Name" in a NAV report which is being used as a attachment (as PDF format) with the mail.

We have found that COMPANYNAME is appearing sometimes wrong but "Company.Name" is giving always right information.

May I know what is the reason behind that issue ?

    Thas because, COMPANYNAME is a database level function which return the Company name you opened (under File-->Company-->Open). But, you normally store the legal name of the company in Company Information table. Name is a filed of that table.

    When referring to legal names, please store them in Company Information and use it in reports.

    The two COMPANYNAME and Company.Name are used in Mail.

    Users first open a Sales Order and then Post the SO, during the posting a Mail is generated and send to the respected customer mail ID.

    COMPANYNAME name appeared wrong but Company.Name is giving the right information.
