How to Setup Online Bank Feeds in Madeira

You need to be sure : The default company, CRONUS, that launches when you first log in to Project “Madeira” does not have electronic bank feeds enabled. To tryout this feature you must switch to trial Company “My Company“.

In Project “Madeira” you can connect to most of the online banks and download electronic bank feeds for use in bank reconciliation, avoiding tedious, manual reconciliation, reducing errors, and ensuring that your data is refreshed on a frequent basis.

When you log into MyCompany for the first time, a Company Setup wizard will guide you through setting up the basic company information, including using a bank feed service.

Dont forget to select “Use Bank Feed Service” in Company Setup Page to enable this Service.

You can Manage Bank Accounts & Feeds from Bank Account List Page.

If you enable “Use Bank Feed Service” in Company Setup Page, a new section displays in the ribbon as shown in above screenshot with actions so that you can create a new bank account in Project “Madeira” based on the online bank feed, link already existing bank accounts to online bank feeds, unlinking online bank account feeds, or set up automatic download of feeds on a regular schedule.

When you reconcile bank accounts, you can download bank feeds on demand, as well as process automatically downloaded feeds if you have set up already.

In the Payment Reconcilliation Journal, you can import bank statements based on your bank feeds, and Project “Maderia“ will automatically suggest how payments are applied to ledger entries. You can change the application before you post.

Alternatively, you can import bank statements to the Bank Account Reconcilliation window and reconcile the statements with your ledger entries there.

I will come up with more details in my upcoming posts, till then keep practicing and Learning.

How to Detect Duplicates

Until Dynamics NAV 2013, the only possibility was to iterate through the table in a loop and then create a sub-loop where another instance of the same table is filtered to check for duplicates.

For example, to check for duplicate names in the Contact table, the code would look like this:

Duplicate.-1

Dynamics NAV 2013 onwards, we can use queries to create a more efficient implementation of the same logic.

 The solution involves that you create a query to return duplicates, and then invoke it from a method that would test the value of the query to identify if duplicates were found.

Step 1 – Creating the Query

  • The query must be created with the table we want to search in as the dataitem.
  • The field we want to search for must be created as a grouped field.
  • Create a totaling field on the count, and add a filter for Count > 1. This ensures that only records with more than one instance of the field that we selected in the previous step are included in the query result.
  • Continuing with our Contact Name example, here is how the query would look:

Duplicate.-2

Step 2 – Invoking the Query to Check for Duplicates

Now that the query is created, all we need to do is to invoke the query and check if any records are returned, which would mean that there are duplicates.

Here is an alternate implementation of the FindDuplicateContact method using the query that we created:
