I am using Power Query to get data for a report from Dynamics CRM. The data I want is in the Opportunity table. Several of the fields I am interested come from choice fields and the values in the table for the options are numeric values. I want to know where to find the option descriptions.
For example, the SalesStage can have one of four values - 0, 1, 2, 3 for Qualify, Develop, Propose, and Close.
On my report I don't want to show 0, 1, 2, 3. I want to show Qualify, Develop, Propose, and Close. Of course I don't want to hard code the values in the report.
Where in the CRM database are the choice values stored?
All Choice values are stored in the StringMap Table. Please refer to the example below:
<entity name="stringmap" >
<attribute name="attributevalue" />
<attribute name="attributename" />
<attribute name="objecttypecode" />
<condition attribute="attributename" operator="eq" value="SalesStage" />
<condition attribute="objecttypecodename" operator="eq" value="opportunity" />
Mark Carrington shared a great blog about this topic: markcarrington.dev/.../
I don't see a stringmap table:
Is there something I have to do to make it visible to Power Query?
The blog by Mark Carrington looks like a great solution except that I am using Power Query in Excel rather than Power BI and there is no Dataverse connector in Excel. It works great in Power BI but the people wanting the report are used to Excel.
I just checked on my environment. I don't see the stringMap table. However, I can access PickListMapping instead.
Please refer to this blog: jukkaniiranen.com/.../
Good luck !
The picklistmappings had the values. It worked fine.
Thanks also for the link to the other article. It will work even better when I do some Power BI reports.
