[CRM2011] how to add a field to the report entity RRS feed

  • Question


  • hi

    I try to add some fields to the report entity in CRM2011.

    I have changed the CanCreateAttributes which is the column at the entityview of the database to true,

    and the [new] button of the report entity's field custom page is displayed ,but it displayed a error

    when i save the new field.

    how to add a field to report entity only by change the database or xml and without any code?

    Thanks

  • It will bee very difficult as attributes does not sit just in the table. it also needed to be added to some attribute tables and metadata stuff.

    I don't think it can work.

    It is totally unsupported.  you will be better off creating the same table with additional field in different database and synchronize them.

    I hope this helps.
