How to: Export or Import Profiles
You can export a profile, for example to reuse UI configurations in other Microsoft Dynamics NAV databases.
You can quickly implement UI configurations for a profile by importing an XML file that holds the configured profile.
You cannot import a profile that already exists in the database, even though the XML file is named differently or has different content. You must delete the existing profile before you can import the new profile.
