Import a File and Export it as a ZIP file in NAV 2017

Before starting, I want you to know that this post is not limited to just importing and zipping a file. I want to show you the ability of codeunit 419 and the functions available in it. I have used a couple of them in my code.

Set filter in report using Text variable in NAV - Tips, Tricks & Facts #10

Hello everyone, It's been a month since I have written any post. Well, sometimes the work is just as much to occupy all your time that you barely get time to do other stuff.

The complete title of this post must be "Set filter in report using Text variable in which the user can use .. (aka range) and | (aka separator) in NAV" but never mind. 😉

I encountered this situation where I wanted to set filter on the report's dataitem using a text variable. So, I asked this question in some forums and got the answer which helped me resolve my problem and I want to share it with you guys too!
