Dataports and directory permissions

My dataport needs to export data to a file located in an AS400 folder…so where can i tell my dataport which username and password to use to access this directory ? I expected navision to show me user and password form when i run the report but this doesn’t happen, it tells me i cant’ access the file. Thanks. Elisa.

Before running the Dataport, the user must have writeaccess to the AS400 folder. I’m sure you have a Systems Administrator, who can tell you how this is done and perhaps also tell you how to automate this via e.g. a bat- or cmd-file. This, really, isn’t a Navision problem.
