Below is the list of No. of Steps required if you plan to Upgrade to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem).


Wondering why these steps, below are the details of the no. of steps -

1. From NAV 2015 / NAV 2016 / NAV 2017 / NAV 2018 - 

With Release of Product in the product DVD, Microsoft has released one step upgrade codeunits from NAV 2015 and Higher (as shown below).

Two Folders - Data Conversation Tools (W1) and Local Objects (for Localized version) which you downloaded.



2. From NAV 5.0 / NAV 5.1 / NAV 6.0 / NAV 6.1 / NAV 2013 / NAV 2013 R2 - 


  • From NAV 5.0 and NAV 5.1 - No data upgrade toolkit to NAV 2009 versions. It only requires Object Merge.


  • From NAV 6.0, NAV 6.1, NAV 6.2, NAV 2013 & NAV 2013 R2 - Microsoft have one Step Upgrade to NAV 2009 and higher to NAV 2015. And from NAV 2015 one step to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem).
