    Hi, If you just want to complete the Item Description, here is a standard method, I hope it can give you some hints.

    Hope this helps.

    To modify the description in Item Ledger Entries, you'll need to update your AL code to include the RIMD permission set, which allows you to modify data in the table.

    Here's the updated code:

    codeunit 50101 "Modify Item Ledger Entry"
    Permissions = tabledata "Item Ledger Entry" = rimd;

    trigger OnRun()
    ItemLedgerEntry: Record "Item Ledger Entry";
    if ItemLedgerEntry.Get(<Entry No.>) then begin
    ItemLedgerEntry.Description := 'New Description';

    Make sure to replace <Entry No.> with the specific entry number you want to update. This codeunit will grant the necessary permissions to read, insert, modify, and delete data in the "Item Ledger Entry" table.

    Deploy the extension and run the codeunit to apply the changes.

    If you need further assistance, feel free to ask!

    Once they are posted its not possible to modify them out of the box. But can I confirm why you need to modify them, perhaps there is another option.
