Introduction:

Here, I will demonstrate how a user can add data into reports by themselves from the Request Page in Business Central.

Pre-Requisites:

  1. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Steps:

  1. Create a report and in the Report Page section enter a text variable which you want to display in the report.
requestpage
{
layout
{
area(Content)
{
group(General)
{
field(Note; Note)
{
ApplicationArea = All;
MultiLine = true;
}
}
}
}
}

2. Insert this variable on the report layout where you want it to be displayed.

3. Click on the Action and the Request Page opens up where the data in the variable to be displayed on the report can be seen/entered. The user enters the data and clicks on Preview. The data can be seen on the report.

Conclusion:

Thus, this way user can enter data in report from the request page.
