Microsoft Dynamics NAV - Get File Count from a Folder using Dotnet.

Hi All,

Today I want to discuss a code re-write that I had to do on a recent project about file handling.

Scenario -
PDF will be saved in a shared path whenever a purchase invoice is printed. To Generate File Name we were using Purchase Invoice No. and then extending that with an integer.

So if Purchase Invoice (PRO001) Report will be printed for the fifth time, the shared path will already have following files -

PRO001-1.pdf
PRO001-2.pdf
PRO001-3.pdf
PRO001-4.pdf

And Next file name should be PRO001-5.pdf.

Hi Readers,

Let's continue what we are discussing from Last two weeks.

To understand the content of this article and use the pattern we are about to discuss in this article you need to go through old articles.

If you haven't read the Part 1 and Part 2 below are the links for same.

Part 1 - Send Email from Navision using a Pattern provided by Microsoft in New version.

Part 2 - Develop a Word Layout for Sales Shipment Report.

In this last article, we will discuss how to use the Pattern & Word Layout for sending an Email.

The idea is Simple - Using word Layout for the Email Body and then use Email Pattern to send Email.

Without Further Delay, let's discuss how we can configure & customize same in NAV 2017.
Thanks to Mohamed Zayed and hope this solves your issue.

** What we are customizing is already part of standard NAV. The article is just for an explanation how to customize if required to be added in some other NAV areas.
