It is not often that I post a solution that is intended to be used in Iceland only. Here is one.
Arion Banki is one of the major national banks in Iceland and they want to support Dynamics NAV users. On their website you will find the currency exchange rates for every working date. I created an importer that will download the exchange rate from their website and import into NAV.
There are two ways to do this. First is to go into Currencies in the NAV Client and click on Import
The other way is to add a Job Queue Entry to make this an automatic task.
The process will find the last date imported into your system and import all days from and including that date to the current working date.
Last Monday Microsoft announced the release of a new major version of Dynamics NAV.
On the product download page I am happy to see that my IS localized version is available. It is nice to see that and a big change from the last release where the IS version was not available until May 1st this year, seven months after the global release date.
A PDF document is supplied with highlighted new features and download links for all versions.
As a part of the new localized NAV 2013 we need to configure the Rapid Start package to be used with new installations. As we started to work with the packages trying to export to Excel we got an error.
The cause is known by Microsoft.
You receive this error calling an Excel method when the following conditions are true:
- The method requires an LCID (locale identifier).
- You run an English version of Excel. However, the regional settings for the computer are configured for a non-English language.
If the client computer runs the English version of Excel and the locale for the current user is configured for a language other than English, Excel will try to locate the language pack for the configured language. If the language pack is not found, the error is reported.
We saw the same error in NAV 2009 R2 Role Tailored Client. The solution is simple, download and install a language pack for Microsoft Office that matches your regional settings. You should find the language pack on the Office Language Interface Pack (LIP) downloads page.

Microsoft has released Dynamics NAV 2013 build 34713 localized for Iceland. Download from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Download Page.
At a client I was trying to start the NAV 2009 R2 Service Tier. The client has a non-english character in the database name and the service tier complained and would not start. This is an issue that Microsoft fixed recently and after I installed a newer version of the service tier everything works fine.
I also had to make sure that the CustomSettings.config file was saved with UTF-8 encoding. This can be done by running Notepad in administrative mode, open the file and select the UFT-8 encoding in save-as dialog.
In the localized version of Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 the report layout for Role Tailored Client is missing. I have created the layout and applied a few fixes to the reports.
