Change Internet Explorer (IE) Security Settings to Enable JavaScript

As discussed in a previous post some of the Internet Explorer (IE) security settings can be frustrating at times. To enable JavaScript open the Tools menu (Alt + X) and click Options.

Next, click on the Security Tab and click on the Internet (the image of the globe) and then click the Custom Level button.

 

Afterwards, scroll to the Scripting section and click Enable right below the Active scripting option.

Finally, click Ok on to close each of the windows.

Change Internet Explorer (IE) Security Settings to Enable File Downloads

The security restrictions in Internet Explorer may be understandable but at times they can be extremely frustrating and tedious to change. One such setting is the blocking of File Downloads. To change the File Downloads setting open the Tools menu (Alt + X) and click Internet Options. 


Next, click on the Security Tab and click on the Internet (the image of the globe) and then click the Custom Level button.


Afterwards, scroll to the Downloads section and click Enable right below the File download option.

 Finally, click Ok on to close each of the windows.

 

Microsoft Dynamics NAV: Find that object on the Menu

Have you ever wondered where on a Microsoft Dynamics NAV menu an object existed? Did you ever wish that there was an easier way to find or search for objects on a Microsoft Dynamics NAV menu?

MenuRead is a utility that was designed to make an easier task out of finding where items are on a Microsoft Dynamics NAV (classic) menu. Using MenuRead you can easily find where objects are located within the Microsoft Dynamics NAV (classic) menu structure. MenuRead’s user interface simplifies the task of browsing through the menu structure. MenuRead has a friendly user interface that allows for the searching by object name or number. MenuRead even searches by partial match. Once a menu item is found its relative path can be easily copied to the clipboard for further reference.

Using MenuRead is as simple as exporting the Menu objects from Microsoft Dynamics NAV as text and loading the exported text file within the application.

MenuRead can be downloaded >>here<< and require the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.

If you have any suggestions please let me know.  I will release updates as they are available.

Edit those XML files

Wow! It has been a while since my last post. It doesn’t feel like it has been that long. Things have been both hectic and busy (to say the least). I am going to try and make it a point to post more often (again).

Over the past few months I have had the need to maintain a number of different XML files. Along with storing application settings and configurations, XML files are also great for database data transfer. XML files are simple and easy to use and they are even easier if you have the right tools. One such tool, that I use frequently is XML Notepad 2007. XML Notepad 2007 is a simple application that allows for the editing of XML documents. It has a drag and drop interface that is fairly intuitive. If you find yourself managing XML files add this free application to your tool library.
