If you would restore a CRONUS database (with intention to check out the Setup Questionnaire which I have mentioned yesterday), you might be a little bit disappointed when you go into Administration > Application Setup > Company Setup > Setup Questionnaire – you can’t find any data!
That is because you need to create (or initiliaze) Setup Questionnaire in the first place.
How to Create Setup Questionnaire in Dynamics NAV?
1. Select a company setup (industry-specific) XML file.
1.1. In Dynamics NAV, click Tools > Object Designer. Click Form and find form ID 8622 Company Setup. Click Run.
1.2. Look up in the Company Type field and select the Industry Type. Click OK to confirm. Then click OK in Company Setup window.
1.3. Click OK when the import is complete.
Note: During the import process, by default 67 tables are populated with industry-specific data.
2. Review Setup Questionnaire Questions.
2.1. Go to Administration > Application Setup > Company Setup > Setup Questionnaire and click Questionnaire > Show Questions.
2.2. You can click F5 to go to the list of Setup Tables.
2.3. Select the relevant area (setup table) and click OK to review questions.
Note: You can add new questions, or change default questions to match customizations on your database.
3. Export Setup Questionnaire to a file (usually, Excel).
3.1. Go to Go to Administration > Application Setup > Company Setup > Setup Questionnaire and click Questionnaire > Export to Excel.
3.2. Enter the File Name and click Save.
3.3. Click OK when export process is completed.
3.4. Open Excel file you just created and review various tabs on the spreadsheet.
Note: You shouldn’t change questions on the file directly. If you notice, that a question needs to be changed, do that in Dynamics NAV and export Setup Questionnaire again.
