The Object File cannot be used with this version of the program

If you are working on different versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV at a same time and if you have a one common location to save all your objects, Then I am pretty sure you have seen below error message. 

"The Object File cannot be used with this version of the program."


Many of will know how to overcome this issue however this blog post is for the new people who still haven't face the issue. 

Reason : Microsoft Dynamics NAV does not allow you to save FOB objects of a lower version if the location contain higher version FOB files. As an example you will not be able to export and save 2009 version of FOB files when 2013 version FOB files are present in the same location. 

Resolution : You have two options in here. First one is save the files in .txt format and you will not face the issue. Second one is most common method many people follow is change the export location. 

Good News : Microsoft has corrected this issue in KB 2837147 / Build 34589.

Confusion over editable property : TRUE/FALSE or YES/NO

In MS Dynamics NAV Editable and Enable fields properties represent different values in different places. 

As an example if you go to the property of the page and editable field it is set as <YES>
Plus this is a option property where you won't be able to assign a boolean value for the field and control the editability of the page using the particular boolean value. 


This is how it looks the Table Property


For a field in a page, Editable property is set as <TRUE> and you can set a boolean value to the property and control the field editability by controlling the boolean value. 
This is how it looks in the field property

 Is this something Microsoft did intentionally or is it a mistake?
