Automation of Navision (Microsoft Dynamics Navision)

We receive standard templates that needs to be updated in Navision (Microsoft Dynamics Navision), how can I automate. As both excel and Navision are microsoft products I thought excel VBA would work , but its not the case. Could you please help if there is any other way or a tool that i can Automate.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Its difficult to answer the question as stated because there's insufficient detail but in general and assuming you are using 2009 or later - Navision uses C/AL (client server automation language) rather than VBA but the two can communicate.

C/AL is based on pascal so is not too difficult to learn and MS have tailored it be specific to the Nav database.
