Modify table properties through extension


Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is now being licensed as Dynamics 365 Finance and Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management. For more information about these licensing changes, see Dynamics 365 Licensing Update.

To modify properties on a table, you must create an extension of that table. In Application Explorer, right-click the table, and then select Create extension. A new table extension is created in the selected project, as shown in the following illustration.

Create a table extension

You can now modify the following properties through the property sheet:

  • Created By
  • Created Date Time
  • Modified By
  • Modified Date Time
  • Country Region Codes

By setting the Created By, Created Date Time, Modified By, or Modified Date Time property to Yes, you help guarantee that a corresponding field is added to the table. Corresponding tracking information about the user is then stored in the table when records are created or updated. You can't set these properties to No if they are set to Yes on the base table.

By adding country or region codes to the list, you help guarantee that the corresponding table is also applicable when the system runs in the context of the specified country or region.
