[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?

  • A_zerg,

    I would highly advise you to return any changed values at the database level back to their original values and abandon this effort entirely as there is no good way to customize this entities attributes.  The methodology you are attempting to use is highly unsupported and will expose your organization to a lot of risk down the road.  Manual database changes will render your implementation as non-supportable by Microsoft and upgrades and updates will most likely fail to work.  The system could also become completely unstable.

    I would urge you to heed this warning as it will protect your companies investment in CRM.
