    Hello Abigail,

    You have a big upgrade process moving from release 4 application to NAV 2013R2.
    All custom reports need to be converted and most likely redesigned because sections are gone, replaced by Visual Studio layouts.
    All forms are gone, replaced by pages.
    These are different objects, so there is no merge type tool, though there are third party products that will take on reports for you – at a price, and not as well as doing it yourself.

    Dataports have to be moved to xmlports.

    If you are using any modules that were rewritten in version 5 – like jobs and service – you have no straight move of those mods.

    Yes – it is possible, but it will take a lot of work and knowledge.
    Your other choice is to re-implement and move limited data from the old to the new system.
