Effect of changing the Global Dimension after a year of transaction


Is there a bad effect, if I change the Global Dimension, after a year of transaction. Hoping for your reply. Thanks

No bad effect in standard product BUT

depending on number of transaction / size of database this could take some time…

check for changes that may not update automatically (fields added to tables)

reports or analyses that need specific dimensions values.

Apply the usual precautions (run in QA / Test database and review effects) before starting on live database.

I have also see errors in the dimensions after doing this, but it was in an older version (pre 4.0). What version are you running?


We are using NAV 5.0 sp1. So it safe to do it? hoping for your reply. thanks

Yes. At least I haven’t seen or heard of any problems in this version.
