Table Data Editor Application for Business Central (Cloud and OnPrem)

You probably remember the glory days when we had direct access to data in Navision tables. But with the move to Cloud Business Central, we lost that ability. It's probably much safer and more correct, but what if we need to fix some data problem and we know what we're doing? We can write a routine that fixes that problem. But I suggest a better option, this Data Editor extension that allows you to change and delete information from any table in Business Central.
New featuers (part 2)
Important: be careful when changing data in the tables, it may cause errors or loss of important data. All responsibility for misuse of the application rests entirely on your shoulders.


The idea is that you can load any table using RecordRef and FieldRef, and then display the loaded data using a temporary table. Since the number of fields and their type can be arbitrary, dynamic variables are used for visibility. As a result, we get a kind of dynamic "matrix".

Plans to improve

  1. Add support for changing Primary Key fields.
  2. Add the ability to Insert records into an open table
