Internal Error 47-1

Recently I faced an issue with the database which was present in NAV 5.0 SP1. Whenever we were taking the backup of the database, it started giving an error "Internal Error 47-1". We tried to take a fob of the all the objects in the database but again we failed as the same error was present.

On a bit of reaserch we came across a KB article of MS which provides an insight of the Internal error 47-1. ( The issue arises when a NAV 5.0 SP1 database is opened with NAV 2009 SP1 exe, it doesnot prompts for the database to upgrade but simply upgrades it, as a result of which you will find NAV 2009 SP1 objects being internally created resulting in the error message.

The most possible fix to the same is to have a technical upgrade from NAV 5.0SP1 to NAV 2009 SP1. The other way out for the same is to get in touch with the MS Support team.

Hospital Management System Or EMR- Electronic Medical Record In Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Its been quite a long time since I have blogged, well in the past I was associated in builiding what's known as the future step, creating Hospital Management System in NAV or you can say creating Electronic medical record. So what is the definition of Electronic Medical record, An electronic medical record is usually a computerized legal medical record created in an organization that delivers care, such as a hospital and doctor's surgery.[1] Electronic medical records tend to be a part of a local stand-alone health information system that allows storage, retrieval and manipulation of records.

The definition seems pretty simple and convincing but the issue arises when you are actually to develop the same and that too with Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Asking about the question of what is the arena of this HMS that was being developed in NAV, these are

-Patient Registration and Demographic Information Tracking
-Online Prescriptions
-Patient Drug charts, dispensing drugs, fluids and Vital signs mapping
-Third Party Insurance
-Imaging & Radiology
-Operation Theater Management
-Patient Transfers
-Out Patient Treatments
-Ward Management
-Patient Billing

There are some of key learnings with this which I feel I must share. The key learnings in this are
-Infrastructure for HMS/EMR
-Development Issue
-Change Management

Upgrade from NAV 3.6 IN Version to NAV 2009

Well, not quite to late to put in this piece of information and might help you all who are trying to upgrade from NAV 3.6 version to NAV 2009. For the past few days I have been trying to estimate the way forward to upgrade a NAV 3.6 database to NAV 2009.

The above seems possible and many of you have even succeded in the same, simple steps when followed will help you acheive this.

Upgrade the objects in NAV 4.0 as win your client DB, upgrade the data using the upgrade toolkit and then start your upgradation of objects in NAV 2009, again use the upgrade toolkit for NAV 2009 to upgrade the data to NAV 2009. Make the db live. Simple....

Now think of a scenario where a DB is present in NAV 3.6 IN version and you want to upgrade to NAV 2009 W1, think..

I will let you know my findings soon..
