Fields list form is an extended version of the standard Show all fields form with the additional features such as displaying all fields with the extended information, comparing and editing.
Currently, you have the following options to directly view or edit D365FO data:
Typical problems when using these tools are:
Fields list form provides a convenient way to view current record data with the following options:
Open All sales orders form and go to the Options-Record info and then press Fields list button
Fields list form will show the current data for the selected sales order
Another way to run this form is to Right click on the form field, press Form information and then Field list button. This action doesn't save the current form cursor, so you can view the uncommitted data.
You can edit a field value or delete the current record. To change a field value press the Change value button.
If you check Ignore update parameter, an update will be performed using doUpdate() method. Delete provides the same option. Do not use editing feature on test/prod data, you can easily corrupt the data.
You can compare different records. For example, we can compare 2 sales order lines.
Select the first line and press Options - Record info - Fields list button. Then, expand the Compare group and Save the first line
Close this form, return to Sales order and select the second line. Run Fields list form again. Then you can compare previously saved Line1 and the Current record(sort by the Different column to see all differences)
