Business value

Making it easier to exchange data in specific tables with data from external files.

Feature details

You can set up Business Central to exchange data in specific tables with data from external files, such as to send and receive electronic documents, or to import and export bank data or other data, such as payroll, currency exchange rates, and item catalogs. In this release wave, we improve this capability, adding new features and making it easier to work with different types of data.

Among the improvements are the ability to group by a chosen field, use the key index to sort results, and the new transformation types Rounding and Field Lookup.
