NAV November ’16 Cumulative Updates

As we know, on the beginning of the month we get a new cumulative updates for Dynamics NAV. This month everything is the same as we already used to. We got Cumulative Updates for the following NAV releases:

As you can notice, we didn’t get Cumulative Update for NAV 2017. Maybe we will get it later, but I’m sure we will get the first one the next month.


On my first sight I didn’t see some features from NAV 2017 migrated to the older versions. Generally, there are standard platform and application hotfixes. Update your solution with the newest CU, but if you can – update your solution to the NAV 2017.

As usually, these cumulative updates replace previously released cumulative updates.

Mainstream Support for NAV 2009 Ends

Mainstream support for all Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 versions ends January 13th, 2015. This is the last NAV version with the classic client. Of course, NAV 2009 also has RTC client, but a lot of companies use classic client. That means, Microsoft ends with classic client support.


Maybe, this is the right moment to think about upgrade to the newer NAV versions. In this situation I recommend NAV 2015. With the new Microsoft Dynamics policy, we have new cumulative updates every month, and if you use them, you will stay current in the future. That means, you will not have a need for new upgrade in following years, because you will always have the newest version. This will make a less of your investment in the future and less your users adapts to new versions – a lot of benefits.


UpdatePropagation Property on NAV 2015 Page

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, a new property called UpdatePropagation is added to the page fields.


The introduction of this property makes it possible to update a parent page from a subpage automatically without using the page Refresh button. From child page request parent page to do update instead. The parent page first updates itself and then the children.

It sets a value that specifies what happens when a main page with a subpage is updated. The UpdatePropagation property is available on part controls and has two options; Subpage and Both.

If UpdatePropagation is set to Subpage, an update action will update the subpage only. If UpdatePropagation is set to Both, an update action will update both the main page and the subpage. This is useful if a value on the subpage changes, and you want a main page total to be refreshed automatically. Also, it works on all NAV Clients, doesn’t matter is this Windows, Web or Tablet client.

We can use the UpdatePropagation property to update a main page total, when the amount on the subpage lines is updated. To do that, add a CurrPage.UPDATE(); call, for example, in the OnValidate trigger on the subpage to have the UpdatePropagation property take effect.
