Issue  How to Copy an Item From One Company to Another


This procedure works for copying Customer, Vendor, and Item cards across companies in Navision.

1. Open up a Navision client -> select the item card that you want to make a copy of in Company A (the company to copy FROM)

2. Select Edit Tab -> Copy

3. Open up another Navision client, open up Company B (the company to copy TO), go to an item card, create a new item card, select Edit Tab -> Paste

4.  You may have to give the item a new number in Company B, depending on how the 'No. Series' is set up.  If the 'No. Series' is manual, if may not be an issue.

5.  Any supporting records belonging to this item that you want to copy, should be copied separately now.  For example:  Dimensions do not get copied across using this technique.

Another method is for ODT to develop a utility to run this function.  Depending on the client and desired detail involved, there can be a minor or significant cost associated to this.  Contact ODT for further information.
