Cumulative update 8 also introduces new functionality for exporting and importing companies and other data. You can export a company from a Microsoft Dynamics NAV database and import it into another database, and you can export and import other types of data such as global data, application data, and application objects.

In earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you exported and imported this type of data as part of backing up and restoring databases. In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 CU8, you can do this by using the Export-NAVData and Import-NAVData Windows PowerShell cmdlets. You can also import and export data in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

For more information, see the following documents on the W1 version of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 CU8 download media:

  • MicrosoftDynamicsNAV2013R2CU8_ExportImportDataUsingNavDataFiles.pptx
  • MicrosoftDynamicsNAV2013R2CU8_ImportExportData.pdf

Please note that there is very limited support for exporting and importing data in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. Use the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client or the Windows PowerShell cmdlets instead.
