Copying NAV Objects Between Databases

A quick trick for today - one of these things that even NAV veterans are not aware of, but might be useful and time saving

If you need to transfer the objects between NAV databases, how would you do it? The most obvious answer would be - export and import them from the object designer. That's something NAV specialists don't even stop to think about.

After each of the sessions, I was left with at least a half-page of questions on NAV 2013 that I couldn't answer right away.
