In this chapter, we have covered the basic structure of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. We talked about the design philosophy, application objects, and the unique table structure. We discussed the Role Tailored Concept and its reflection to older versions of the product. We talked about some basic functions of the product-like number series and application setup. We also talked about the important basic posting structure and the way SIFT works. We discussed how the document structure overlays the journal structure and how the umbrella structure is on top of that.
