Upgrading to Continia Document Output 2022 R1 (6.00) for FOB versions

This article describes how to upgrade Document Output for FOB versions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. For information on how to upgrade Document Output for app versions of Business Central, see Upgrading Continia Document Output for app versions of Business Central.

When you upgrade your old version of Document Output to a later one, the upgrade process depends on what version you're upgrading from and what version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Business Central you have. It may not be possible to upgrade directly, and you might also have to update your version of NAV/Business Central to ensure compatibility. To learn how to upgrade your old FOB version of NAV/Business Central to an app version while ensuring compatibility with Document Output, see Migrating Document Output from FOB to App for Business Central On-Premises.

The table below enables you to determine exactly what tasks must be carried out for your particular scenario in order for you to upgrade your old version of Document Output to Document Output 2022 R1 (6.00).

Upgrade to Document Output 2022 R1 (6.00)

ScenarioTasks
Full upgrade from one of the following versions:
  • Document Output 1.xx (any version between 1.35 and 1.48)
From these versions, you must do as follows to upgrade:
  1. In the Continia PartnerZone, go to Downloads and download the relevant product package.
  2. Using the setup guide from the product package, install Document Output as usual. This will automatically upgrade your software.

Note

The table "6175271 E-Mail Template" isn't used in later versions. The first time you open E-Mail Templates in a later version, all the old templates in table 6175271 will be converted to the two new tables "6175283 E-Mail Template Header" and "6175284 E-Mail Template Line". For this reason, it's important that you don't delete table 6175271.

Likewise, the page "6175279 E-Mail Language Templates” isn't used in later versions. When you've upgraded to a later version, this page can't compile and may therefore be deleted.

Full upgrade from one of the following versions:
  • Document Output 2.xx (any version between 2.00 and 2.35.04)
  • Document Output 3.xx (any version between 3.00 and 3.27)
  • Document Output 4.xx (any version between 4.01 and 4.04)
  • Document Output 5.xx (any version between 5.01 and 5.03)
From these versions, you must do as follows to upgrade:
  1. In the Continia PartnerZone, go to Downloads and download the relevant product package.

Note

Following any upgrade, you must download a new developer and customer license from Microsoft in order to obtain permissions for all new object numbers.
