    So here are something that will help you -
    1. Upgrade have two parts - Data migration and Object Merging.

    From NAV 5 To NAV 2016 -
    The Data Migration have following steps -
    1. 6 TO 2015 (OR 2013 / 2013 R2)
    2. 2015 (OR 2013 / 2013 R2) TO NAV 2016.

    From 5 To 6 There is no data migration required.

    So here is what need to be done -
    1. Object Merging need to be done directly to NAV 2016 for all objects.
    2. Other than that you need to merge table (fields) to 2015 and NAV 2009 (6).

    Once Object merging is complete you can start the data migration

    See your first task is to merge custom fields from 5 to 2009 and that will not have permission issues if you are a partner.

    boraunal,
    Merge you can do by exporting in txt format all objects from customized database version 5, clear database version 5 based on customized version and target version NAV 2016.
    Compare changes between clear and customized version and bring all changes to NAV2016.

    Want to remind you, if database is hardly customized this process can be complicate. If you do not have experience on that it will take a lot of time.

    I haven't seen anything <yet> other than Powershell scripts to upgrade from 2016 to 2017, but I haven't looked very hard. In theory, Microsoft should be able to provide scripts to go from 2015 to 2017. If you are going to 2017 directly, you should consider making your customizations in 2017 using the new Eventing model. That will make future upgrades simpler.

    Good luck!
