H there,

I'm trying to avoid duplicate "name" for Customer table is Business Central, is it possible to do it by set up?

    Hi Josh, thank you for reply.

    Because the No. field is not in Dataverse's account table, I'm not able to get the account record in Power Automate using customer's No..

    only the "No." field is checked for duplicates as standard. If you happen to find duplicates though you can merge them to one record later:

    In the contacts area there are more standard tools to duplicate searching - however they are retrospective not as you key in.

    This could be a good use case for approvals
