RapidStart Export Packages

  • 1.  RapidStart Export Packages

    Posted Feb 18, 2020 11:58 AM
    Hello,
    I am working on am upgrade project with multiple companies. I would like to create all the RapidStarts in a Master Company and then export the packages so I can import into the other companies. When I complete the package export does this only export the headers or also the data? I am looking for a way to only get the headers as the companies will have different data in these tables.

    We are currently in #NAV2015 going to #D365BusinessCentral


    Thank you
    Rachel​​

    Rachel,

    When you import a package, it imports all the package definitions and all data not filtered out by the definitions. This data is not automatically applied. You can delete what has been imported or bring in new from Excel overwriting what came in with the package. It is not until you apply the data that it is in the actual working tables.

    This is true. 

    I recommend adding a filter to each table with transactional tables to that you don't bring any data. This will speed up the processing of the import.

    One other suggestion. As you find holes in your templates, and, if you are like me, you will, make sure to update the Master Company. Then use it to update the other companies and any new companies you create.
