Document Creator

In previous NAV/BC releases report development was .. quite okay. Then came RDLC and Visual Studio as a design tool, and for most people that felt like going backwards instead of forward. Less functionality, more complexity.

This remarkable move inspired us to come up with Document Creator. This add-on enables developers and consultants to develop reports in less time, with less stress. Even end users are now able to make layout adjustments. And on top of that: Document Creator will convert your classic reports to Dynamics NAV 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and Business Central in a matter of minutes. Upgrading your reports was never this easy.
