Business value

As your business database grows, you often need a higher degree of control over the data that you export out of or into Business Central.

Feature details

Developers can set the UseRequestPage property to True on an XmlPort object so that users will see a request page in the browser client. Users can then filter on any fields from the source table and potentially reduce the exported data to precisely the records they want, taking advantage of powerful filtering capabilities such as date ranges, expressions, and filter tokens.
