Error - The type NavOption is unknown.

Hi guys,

I would like to share the solution to the error which came up with me while developing a report. It is quite a silly mistake which beginners like us make often.

Solution : Go back to the C/AL code and look up that you must have typed a wrong GET statement there.

In my situation, I was doing

SalesHeader.GET("Sales Line"."Document No.");  //Wrong GET

which resulted in 'The type NavOption is unknown.' error.

I corrected my code and wrote,

SalesHeader.GET("Sales Line"."Document Type","Sales Line"."Document No.");  //Correct GET

And this issue was resolved. Hope you will find this useful.

Hello World! :)

This is my very first blog. My inspiration to write has came from the Maestros of the technology I am currently working in, which is Dynamics NAV. I would not mention names here but I want to thank all of them.

As there is always a space for something new to learn, that is also the reason that has drew me to writing blogs.

I hope I will be able to write blogs which are helpful to Developers and Learners of Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
