Business Value - 

Users and developers can get report datasets in XML that they can then use to either archive the data for compliance or integration scenarios, or to troubleshoot the reports during development.

Feature Details - 

  • Similar to the Export dataset to Excel (no layout) capability that was added in 2021 release wave 1, business users and developers can now get report datasets in XML directly from the request page.
  • The Export dataset to XML feature will show up the same place in the request page and will also require the same privileges.

Till Business central 19, when you try to run a report with layout Option available were - 

  • PDF Document
  • Microsoft Word Document
  • Microsoft Excel Document (data only)

With Business Central 20, while trying to run a report with layout new options are added are -

  • PDF Document
  • XML Document
  • Microsoft Word Document
  • Microsoft Excel Document (data only)


When you choose new option to export an XML Document, you will end up with xml output like below.

Hope you learn and will be able to utilize this feature as Business Central 20 is available.
