Hello,

is it possible to change the flowfield calculation formula of an existing field (standard) in Business Central via AL Extension or do I have to replace the field entirely?

best regards,

Thomas Barbut

This is not possible. You need to create a new field.

Hello, thanks for the answer.

Also is there any way to see current calculation formula of an existing flowfield?

I haven't found a way to do it.

best regards,

To see the current Calculation formula of a standard field, you need to install a local BC sandbox. In a local sandbox, you have access to C/SIDE and you can see standard code and standard field properties (like Calcformula in a standard flowfield). However, actually they're the same as in NAV (maybe it could be quick for you for checking).

Hello,

Was just thinking there is maybe some possibility with the online Sandbox. I will go with local Sandbox just to make sure there are not any changes between Business Central and NAV 2018.

Thanks alot again!
