Platform hotfix for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 (Build 35591) is released.

This hotfix resolves the following problems:

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 administration tool does not work  in a side-by-side installation with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013  R2.
When you use RapidStart services to import lots of records from an Excel workbook, it takes longer than expected.
When you export an account schedule to an Excel workbook and select the Update Workbook option, calculated cells are not updated in the Excel workbook.

How to Stop/Prevent Negative Inventory

I have seen these kind of requests a lot from developers/end-users in NAV forums.

In earlier versions we have to customize NAV to achieve this but NAV2013R2 brings this feature as standard.

We can set up that outbound posting that brings inventory below zero is blocked. This can be set up per item or for all items. 

This setup is in the Inventory Setup, we can put a check mark in Prevent Negative Inventory field which specifies if you can post transactions that will bring inventory levels below zero.

The selection that you make in this field indicates the value in the Prevent Negative Inventory field on individual item cards. The values will either be Default (Yes) or Default (No), which you can change.

I know have setup this for all Items i.e., in Inventory Setup and when I try to post an Item which has in sufficient Inventory then I got below error.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV
You have insufficient quantity of Item 1000 on inventory.
