This is one of the shortest tutorials ever because it is a very easy thing to do. When it comes to designing Business Central Reports in Microsoft Word, you will need an additional tab “Developer”. This tab includes a feature called “XML Mapping” which you need in order to access your dataset in Microsoft word.
Here is how you make it visible:
I assume that you already have a Visual Studio Code Project and a layout. If you do not know how to create or get one, check out this tutorial.
Open your Microsoft Word layout by right clicking and selecting “Open Externally”.
Navigate to the home tab. Right click on the ribbon. Choose “Customize the Ribbon”.
Look at the right column. There is an option “Developer”. It must be checked to see the “Developer” tab. So check it.
That’s it. Pretty easy, huh?
Have a nice day 🙂
