Arion Banki currency importer

It is not often that I post a solution that is intended to be used in Iceland only.  Here is one.

Arion Banki is one of the major national banks in Iceland and they want to support Dynamics NAV users.  On their website you will find the currency exchange rates for every working date.  I created an importer that will download the exchange rate from their website and import into NAV.

There are two ways to do this.  First is to go into Currencies in the NAV Client and click on Import


The other way is to add a Job Queue Entry to make this an automatic task.


The process will find the last date imported into your system and import all days from and including that date to the current working date.

  1. Hi Gunnar,

    I currently try to upgrade a database from NAV 2009 R2 to NAV 2013. Now I’m on step 2. While upgrading I get the Error as below:

    “Dimension Value ID must have a value in Dimension Set Entry: Dimension Set ID=0, Dimension Code=PROJECT. It cannot be zero or empty.”


    Can u assist me..

    1. There are two possible issues. First, are you using temporary dimension set entries in your code ? If so you must use .INSERT(TRUE). The other possibility is that you have a dimension value in your entry tables and the corresponding value does not exist in the dimension value table.
