Pipe Filter with Excel Alternative!

e7b46b9c5ac9c6fdbad811b0288f8673Microsoft MVP Mark Brummel posted a great alternative to the video tip I put out today showing how to use Excel to put together a long string of customer numbers in NAV, that you can find here.

He also says “Blogging it now kinda make me a smart-ass. Maybe I am that. I apologize. ;-)”. Absolutely not, Mark, you’re just SMART!

I always love discovering another way to do the same task. Thanks for sharing Mark!

NAV 50 Tips Series (2014)

50This year, for the second year in a row, I had the opportunity to present a session called 50 Tips in 50 Minutes for Finance at NAVUG Summit and promised to share these tips in short video form before the end of the year.  Many of these I already recorded as short 1-3 minutes videos last year, but there are 7 brand new ones that I’ll update in the month of December, and we’ll ring in the new year with the Top 10 favorite tips as rated on evaluation forms by attendees at NAVUG Summit. As always, if you know a tip you think should be shared with the NAVUG community, share it in the comments, and I’ll try to include in next year’s session!

NAV Account Schedules class offered only one time in 2014

If you’ve been following DynamicsNAVFinancials.com for a while you might know that up until 2014, I’ve taught both an annual in classroom class and multiple online classes for account schedules throughout the year. Due to a very busy schedule in 2014, I’m only offering my account schedules class one time in 2014. 

I will be teaching a full day in person class at NAVUG Summit in St. Louis this year. I will be doing the class twice on Monday, October 13th in NAV2013 and on Tuesday, October 14th in NAV2009 Classic. Follow the links to get to registration for this class and for more information about the conference.

The class is a full immersion day of nothing but account schedules. We will spend more than 50% of the time doing hands on exercises so you can easily learn and retain the material we cover in class. The class sizes are small so you will be able to have lots of one on one time to ask questions specific to your businesses. Since this class is only being offered one time this year, I encourage you to sign up early to make sure you get a spot.

See you there!
