The Style Sheet feature in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 has been enhanced with a tool that allows you to easily and without programming knowledge create and modify style sheets in Microsoft Office Word. This tool is on the market now for quite some time now, but it is still worth mentioning, and above all, it is still worth using.

The release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 introduced the option to export any form (apart from matrix forms) from Microsoft Dynamics NAV to Microsoft Office Word and Excel. By simply clicking a button, Microsoft Dynamics NAV will generate an XML document that works in conjunction with an XML style sheet that passes the requested information to either Word or Excel.

Seven style sheets are included in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. You can read about these in the White Paper ‘Creating XML Style Sheets for Data Export from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0’. However, if you want to create more style sheets or modify an existing one, you need to have knowledge of XML and C/AL programming in order to add the relevant data elements.

To simplify this process, a style sheet tool has been created that does not require programming knowledge. The first version of this tool will support the export of data to Word, and this means that the only skill required to create additional style sheets is some end-user knowledge of Word.

The Microsoft Dynamics NAV Stylesheet Tool supports integration to Microsoft Word 2003 and Microsoft Word 2007.

It consists of a fob file and a user guide.
