Temporary Property (XMLports)
Sets whether a temporary table is created to store the records imported using the XMLport.
If the data that you are importing has a different structure than the table in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Business edition that you want to insert it into, you could import the data into a temporary table. The temporary table holds the data in cache without writing it to the database. You can then modify the data before inserting it into the database.
