FIX: On a non-English system column headings are displayed in English



ID: ZTN4095

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • NAV 2009 Service Pack 1
  • Zetadocs for NAV v4.0


This hotfix advises how to download and install the Microsoft hotfix KB 981605 " The RoleTailored client (RTC) cannot show captions in a primary language if the local language that is allowed by the license is not the primary language in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1" . This can cause table column headings on Zetadocs for NAV objects to incorrectly display in English.

Description of Symptoms from Microsoft:

Assume that you run the RoleTailored client (RTC) in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 by using the license that allows a local language. However, the local language is not a primary language. 

Note:  Some languages are based on a primary language. For example, German (Switzerland) is based on German (Germany). When a caption is not defined for German (Switzerland), the German (Germany) caption is shown instead. 

The primary language is not allowed in the RTC. Therefore, if a caption is not defined for the local language, the field names are shown in English. For example, if you have a Swiss license that allows German (Switzerland) instead of German (Germany), the RTC cannot convert the captions to the German (Germany) captions  when the German (Switzerland) captions are not specified.
