As you might know, in Business Central and NAV windows client, we can view and save the report dataset from the preview page, similar to the page inspector. For the development of complex reports, it is very important to be able to analyze the data before print. This would be very useful for creating and debugging RDLC reports.
Yesterday I’ve provided a solution for saving a file generated directly from a Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS tenant to an SFTP server by using Azure Functions. I’ve to admit that this is my preferred way because it gives me more freedom, scalability and adaptability. But obviously, that’s not the only possible way to do so.
Often when we work in Dynamics NAV, we use the same filters and settings over and over again. You might have a customer list that you pull to review every month, or a set of invoices you need to print to PDF weekly, or a set of GL accounts in our Chart of Accounts that you frequently use, and for all of them you have to enter the filters each time.

This means that if you run a report with different filter settings in it, you can save those settings and retrieve them when you print the report. No more having to fill in the settings you want on the report every time you run the report.
