Introduction:
While writing a blog on Automated Testing in Business Central, I was going through sample apps provided by Microsoft and realized that the complexity is nowhere close to what examples Microsoft has provided on docs.microsoft.com. In this blog, I will try to explain how APIs work and how to be creative with the implementation. Also, an API which were in beta are finally out with version V1.0 in the April 2019 release let's see some important key things from development aspects.
This blog is going to be theoretical one kindly bear with me.

The difference is that it can connect to NAV as it is just like a browser.

Generic way of Attaching Documents on any Record of the Page in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central - Template Code

Problem Statement: In Microsoft Business Central, there is a way to attach attachments only on Documents or Master Table records. But, what if this requirement is for other tables such as Opportunities, custom tables, etc. Introduction: I have seen many developers afraid to touch the attachment-related customization as it seems complicated.
Well, I have found a solution and here it goes.
In this blog, I'm attempting to create a generic template for code that needs to have an attachment feature on any table that you like using AL Code.
This means that you simply cannot copy-paste the same code for all the tables but a simple change in variable sub-type will ease your work significantly
