The Easiest Way to Use Table Browser, Delete or Add Table Data in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

by | Updated March 29, 2021 | Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, User Tips and Tricks

Most of you using Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations have seen the utilities that you can download as extensions with Google Chrome to use table browser, well don’t use them anymore!  There’s a much easier way to use table browser with the Google Chrome Web Browser, which I suspect you can do any search engine (IE).

Here’s what you do:

1. Open Chrome > Go to Settings.

  • chrome://settings/In the Search Engine Group, click Manage Search Engines

2. In the Search Engine Group, click Manage Search Engines

3. In the list of your search engines, there will be a very discrete option under Other Search Engines to Add a new one.  Click Add.

Delete or Add Table Data in D365

4. This will open a form where you define:

  • Search Engine – This is the name field.
  • Keyword – This is the word you type in the URL bar to access this search engine. Use “UAT” or the name of the environment you want to use table browser with.
  • URL with %s in place of query – This will be the link to the environment.

5. Below is an example of my setup.

Method to use Table Browser

The key here is the URL.  You need to make sure you enter this appropriately.

I just opened my environment up and copied the URL that first comes up.  It originally was:

  • https://tomupdate8demodataaos.cloudax.dynamics.com/?cmp=usmf&mi=DefaultDashboard

Then you need to modify this value into the URL for the search engine to be:

  • https://tomupdate8demodataaos.cloudax.dynamics.com/?cmp=usmf&mi=SysTableBrowser&TableName=%S

Then click Add

You should be all set.

How to use this functionality

1. Open Chrome

2. In the URL Bar, type your Keyword (Mine was U8) and hit tab.

  • NOTE: It’s case sensitive.

3. Once you tab off, it will show your search engines name as seen below.

Enjoy!

    I have tried this? BUT am not able to get tables. All this process does it allows u to reach an environment with the keyword. What should be the URL?

    Hello Ron,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention, it appears that the URL examples we had shown were removed. I have put those examples back in but I’ll also mention them here, and I hope this answers your question.
