  1. Hi Experts there I’ve tried the above way of filtering the records for the specific legal entity but still my VS development area table browser is still pointed to the “USMF” entity. Is there any solution to this available for filtering the records for specific legal entity.?

    1. Hi Sakthi,

      There is also another way in VS to specify a particular legal entity.

      1. Right Click you VS Project and select Properties. 2. There is a property Company Name, Enter the Legal Entity which you want to filter. Click OK.

      Your table browser will then open with the legal entity you mentioned in Company name.
