How to Run Objects from Dynamics NAV Classic Client
In RTC (Role Tailored Client versions of Dynamics NAV (2013 and above), the Classic Client is still available, but, it is now called the Development Environment. It can be opened by running finsql.exe typically located here:
C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Dynamics NAV90RoleTailored Clientfinsql.exe
Once opened, it will look similar to the old Classic Client; however, you do not open companies from here. You can only open databases. Once the DB is opened, you can view the objects using the Object Designer. Open the Object Designer just like the old Classic Client: Tools/Object Designer.
Figure 1 – Selecting the Object Designer
You can run reports, tables, pages and codeunits from here. But, it is best practice to run these from the RTC client. Anything you run from the Object Designer will actually run in the RTC client. Even the tables will open in a pseudo-temp list style page with all the fields displayed.
