This extension makes it easy to migrate customers, vendors, items, and your general ledger accounts from Microsoft Dynamics C5 2012 to Dynamics NAV.
To migrate data
There are just a few steps to export data from C5, and import it in Dynamics NAV:
- In C5, use the Export Database feature to export the data. Then send the export folder to a compressed (zipped) folder.
- In Dynamics NAV, choose the icon, enter Data Migration, and then choose Data Migration.
- Complete the steps in the assisted setup guide. Make sure to choose Import from Microsoft Dynamcis C5 2012 as the data source.
Viewing the Status of the Migration
Use the Data Migration Overview page to monitor the success of the migration. The page shows information such as the number of entities that the migration will include, the status of the migration, and the number of items that have been migrated and whether they were successfull. It also shows the number of errors, lets you investigate what went wrong and, when possible, makes it easy to go to the entity to fix the issues. For more information, see the next section in this topic.
If something goes wrong and an error occurs, the Status field will show Completed with Errors, and the Error Count field will show how many. To view a list of the errors, you can open the Data Migration Errors page by choosing:
- The number in the Error Count field for the entity.
- The entity, and then the Show Errors action.
On the Data Migration Errors page, to fix an error you can choose an error message, then choose Edit Record to open a page that shows the migrated data for the entity. After you fix one or more errors, you can choose Migrate to migrate only the entities you fixed, without having to completely restart the migration.
Verifying Data After Migrating
If you want to verify that your data migrated correctly, you can look at the following pages in C5 and Dynamics NAV.
|Microsoft Dynamcis C5 2012||Dynamics NAV|
|Customer Entries||General Journals|
|Vendor Entries||General Journals|
|Item Entries||Item Journals|
In Dynamics NAV, the batch for the migrated data is named C5MIGRATE.
Stopping Data Migration
You can stop migrating data by choosing Stop All Migrations. If you do, all pending migrations are also stopped.
