Type: Record

Property Value/Return Value

Type: Text or code

The caption of the table.


TABLECAPTION returns the caption of a table. TABLECAPTION first looks for a CaptionML Property. If it does not find one, it uses the Name Property. This means that TABLECAPTION has multilanguage functionality.


The following example retrieves the caption of the Customer table by using the CustomerRec variable, a record from the Customer table. The value of the Customer table caption is stored in the TableCaption variable and displayed in a message box. The value that is displayed is Customer. This example requires that you create the following variables in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType Subtype
CustomerRec Record Customer
TableCaption Text Not applicable
TableCaption := CustomerRec.TABLECAPTION;  
MESSAGE('The caption for the customer table is: %1', TableCaption);
