Workshop: Business Central Excel Layout Reports Demystified

Date: 09-11-2022 | From: 14:00 to 15:45 | Room: Hall B

Learn in this workshop, using the Excel report layout, how you can create a report that generates a dataset and leave it up to the end-user to further modify it by using the full palette of capabilities in Excel such as sliders, diagrams, charts, pivot tables, and Power Query to design the report.

Discover how you can offer flexibility and freedom for the end-user, being able to change the look and feel of a report, adding additional views, filtering, and sorting on data, using the Excel Layout reports in Business Central.

This workshop will focus on the development of the ideal dataset and of course also the Excel layouts.
