UPDATE: Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Table Data is Editable!


Yes, you heard it right. Business Central Table Data is editable!!
There was always an issue where the Users could not update data directly in Business Central Table which always posed as a problem if it comes to data correction and manually updating the data or using Configuration Package required a lot of efforts.

I stumbled across Teddy's blog and I knew I had to try this.

NOTE: Please try this at your own risk


  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
  • Understanding of User Rights and Permissions
  • Understanding the Risk of User manipulating the data

Books & References:



The steps are as follows -
1. Directly visit the URL:
In order to view the table, you can go to<TENANTID>/<COMPANYNAME>/Tablet?table=<TABLEID>
This method is preferred by consultants who are well familiar with the Table No.
Note that you have to login with the Tablet mode.
To login into Tablet mode, you will have to visit

To get the Table No, you can go to Page Inspect by hitting Ctrl + Alt + F1.
You can also open Page inspect by navigating to (?) > Help & Support

Select  > Inspect Pages

You will see the Table No on the right side.


Well, I'm not sure if its a bug or a feature but this is something that is useful for all.
The downside to this is that there comes certain level of risk with this functionality. Hence, use it at your own risk.
