Jet Express for Word is a new feature available to Microsoft Dynamics users which makes it easy for end users to design documents in Microsoft Word. This feature is part of Jet Express for Microsoft Dynamics NAV and is available to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 users.

Modify Reports in Microsoft Word

Need to change the layout of an invoice or credit memo? Just open the document in Microsoft Word to make changes in a program you already know—no programming required.

Provided you already have reports developed by the Navision professionals. You can only make Layout, Look & Feel changes. For any business logic or including/excluding fields in report will be handled from Navision only as we do.

Design with Flair

You can use document templates that provided by Jet Reports, templates from the Office Store, or create a document from scratch. Add company logos, change fonts, modify fields and customize for multiple regions easily.

Easy to Use

The simple interface allows you to customize or create document layouts using Microsoft Word. Your fields appear in clear text and the search feature makes it quick to add the fields you need.

New functionality in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 allows you to import these document layouts into NAV and run them from within the NAV client.
