Regenerates C# and metadata information in Dynamics NAV virtual tables for a specified language.
finsql.exe command=buildvirtualmetadata, langid=<langid>, [servername=<server>,] [database=<database>,] [logfile=<path and filename>,] [username=<user name>,] [password=<password>,] [ntauthentication=<yes|no|0|1>]
Specifies the standard Windows three-letter ID of the language for which you want to build the metadata, such as ENU or DAN.
The name of the database server that hosts the Dynamics NAV database and objects that you want to modify. The format of this parameter is <computername>\<database server instance>.
If you do not specify both the servername parameter and the database parameter, then the database server and database that are stored in the fin.zup file are used.
When you first specify a database server and database to open, either from a command at a command prompt or from a client, the database server and database are stored in the fin.zup file. By default, the fin.zup file is located at C:\users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\.
If you do not specify the servername parameter but you do specify the database parameter, then the Open Database window opens so that you can specify the database server name.
To view the name of the server on which the current database is stored, on the File menu, choose Database, and then choose Information. Use the value of the Database Server field for the servername parameter.
The name of the Dynamics NAV database that contains the objects that you want to modify.
To view the name of the current database, on the File menu, choose Database, and then choose Information. Use the value of the Database Name field for the database parameter.
The path and file name for the file that contains error messages that result from the command. If there are no errors, then a log file is not created.
By default, the file is named naverrorlog.txt and is located in the same location as finsql.exe.
The navcommandresult.txt file, which contains information about the success or failure of the command, is created in the folder that is specified by the logfile parameter.
When you run finsql.exe with a command, the previous log file and result file are deleted.
If User Access Control (UAC) is turned on and you do not specify to run the Command Prompt window as Administrator, then the Command Prompt window runs as a standard user. In this case, if you do not specify the logfile parameter, then the command fails because the standard user cannot write to the default location of the log file.
The user name to use to authenticate to the database. The user name must exist in the database. If you do not specify a user name and password, then the command uses the Windows user name and password of the current user to authenticate to the database.
If User Access Control (UAC) is turned on and you do not specify to run the Command Prompt window as Administrator, then the Command Prompt window runs as a standard user. In this case, if you do not specify the username parameter and the current Windows user is an Administrator, then the command is run as the standard user.
If you specify the username parameter, then you must also specify the password parameter and the ntauthentication parameter must be no.
For more information about database users and permissions, see Setting Database Owner and Security Administration Permissions.
The password to use with the username parameter to authenticate to the database. If you do not specify a user name and password, then the command uses the Windows user name and password of the current user to authenticate to the database.
Specifies if you want to use NT authentication. The possible values are yes, no, 1, or 0. If you specify the username and password parameters, then you must specify ntauthentication=no or ntauthentication=0.
This example builds metadata for virtual tables in the Demo Database database.
finsql.exe command=buildvirtualmetadata, servername=TestComputer01\NAVDEMO, database="Demo Database"
