Description

Use the New-NAVTableConnection cmdlet to create a new set of connection settings for the application/service.

The connection settings are stored along with the application and can be used by all Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instances that are connected to the specified application.

Code in your application can then use tables at the specified destination. You can connect to a Microsoft Dynamics NAV database by specifying the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instance or the application database.
