RecordID Data Type

Hi all,

I know I was kind of unavailable from last two months. The reason that I was unable to post any articles was due to my busy schedule.

I will try again to gain some pace but just wanted to share with you all about a Data type which I learnt recently.

The Data Type that we will be discussing is RECORDID.

Some of us know how to use it but most of like me were unaware about the use of data type.


"This data type contains the table number and the primary key of a table. You can store a RecordID in the database but you cannot set filters on a Record ID."

If you try to view the data in the table you will see something as the below image, i.e. Binary data.

When I tried with message it show me as written in MSDN i.e -

Table Name: Primary Key Fields

Record ID of Sales Order.

I will try to discuss uses of the same, how to assign RecordID, How to filter RecordID fields in future post.

Stay tuned.

Saurav Dhyani

MSDYN365BC - Data Upgrade To Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on premises.

Hi Readers, We have already talked about the number of steps for upgrading to Business Central on Premises from different NAV versions. After that article, I received multiple requests for an article which list down steps for Data Migration. In this article, we will discuss steps of data migration to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem) from NAV 2017. For this article, I am considering a Cronus Demo Database without any customization. For an actual upgrade project, we will have to complete object merge using compare and Merge process. After the Merge Process, the next step is data migration. Let's discuss those steps. Direct Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-Prem) is from following versions - 1. NAV 2015. 2. NAV 2016. 3. NAV 2017. 4. NAV 2018.
