Delete all records in table with C/AL – Truncate

Invoke-NAVSQL: Execute SQL queries on NAV databases with PowerShell

Just another CmdLet to bother you with (no really, it’s quite an interesting one – try to keep awake … ;-)). The more you use PowerShell .. and the more you use it for NAV .. you just realize that you have to call out to SQL Server quite regularly. Just a few examples: Backup …

Apply-NAVDelta to add and remove customizations

Yep, PowerShell again. So the people that deny PowerShell can stop reading now :-). Although I do think this is quite an interesting blogpost on how to work somewhat more easily with deltas, by the use of a function that is part of my PowerShell Module, called: Apply-NAVDelta.
