To get started with code conversion, first make sure to open an upgrade project using Visual Studio Code. It is very important to have these prerequisites:

  • Convert your C/AL solution to AL using Microsoft guidelines
  • When comparing C/AL code to generate delta files (using Compare-NAVApplicationObject powershell command), apply the -NoCodeCompression parameter. I.e.
Compare-NAVApplicationObject -OriginalPath "C:\Users\BC-User\Desktop\Convert\Deltas\StandardObjects.txt" -ModifiedPath "C:\Users\BC-User\Desktop\Convert\Deltas\CustomizedstandardObjects.txt" -DeltaPath "C:\Users\BC-User\Desktop\Convert\ExportedDeltas" -ExportToNewSyntax -NoCodeCompression 
  • Convert your C/AL code to AL using txt2al tool provided by Microsoft, following standard upgrade guidelines. You can also find additional information in Simplanova's blog.
  • Setup GIT for your solution to be able to revert any undesirable changes
  • Include delta files in your project folder (e.g., place them in ./deltas folder in the root of your project folder)
  • Download symbols for the base application (make sure .alpackages folder is present and contain files ending with .app extension)
