    Capturing non-financial data in Microsoft Dynamics NAV | Evolution Business Systems
    With Simulation functionality in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you can capture and report non-financial data seamlessly. Organisations with the requirement to maintain records of statistical or non-financial data can do so in Microsoft Dynamics NAV (NAV) instead of maintaining it separately Read More

    The issue I am having is  that the "simulation" field does not exist on the source code table. It looks like it has been removed although my research only turned up 1 confirmation for this in a France localization change log.

    If the feature has been removed - does anyone know any other ways to do this?

    Thanks!

    I see it's an Australian website, wondering if it is an Australian localization? I ran a search against the Source Code table for every cumulative update back to 2009 and didn't find a simulation field in any US / NA release.

    Matt,

    Statistical accounts work in the NA database, regardless of the simulation field that is noted in the blog. That definitely looks like a localization, but is not necessary to use statistical accounts. You report on the statistical accounts just like you would a regular G\L Account, and you can add them to account schedules for reporting as well.
