Does anybody know why the "Import Sequence Number" is not available as a display column in Advance Find, and how to access its values?
Having just done a data import where I needed to follow up with a Bulk Edit Operation, I knew the records I just imported would all be tagged with the same import sequence number.
I know in the advanced find I can filter the import sequence number by contains data, but I've imported other records earlier in the day so I decided to search for a record I've just imported by name and then added the import sequence number to the edit columns output. Thus confirming its value that I can then give to the filter operation.
The only problem is the import sequence number isn't listed, and I don't understand why not or what settings I need to change to make it visible.
Since 'Import Sequence Number' column is not available in the list for adding to advanced find view, you can follow below steps to edit view XML to add this column.
1. Create a new view
2. Create new solution and add this view to the solution
3. Export solution and extract
4. Open customizations.xml file
5. Add below cell tag for importsequencenumber under <layoutxml> <grid> <row>
<cell name="importsequencenumber" width="150" />
6. Add below attribute tag for importsequencenumber under <fetchxml> <fetch> <entity>
<attribute name="importsequencenumber" />
7. Save and zip the XML files
8. Import the zip file and publish entity
9. Go to Advanced Find and select the view created at step #1. This view shows the 'Import Sequence Number' column.
Many thanks for this. I was looking for a setting or switch and completely forgot this as a solution. :-)
