Re: Import Business Central (Dynamics NAV) data with multiple companies into CDS

Hi @bahaaa_bouakl ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to import data from multiple companies Dynamics Business Central / NAV into a CDS Entity once time?

 

If you want to import data from multiple companies Dynamics Business Central / NAV into a CDS Entity once time, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

If you want to import this data into a CDS Entity taking into account the data of each company, you should add a "Company ID" column into your Entity to identify which company the current record belongs to.

 

If you want to import data from Dynamics Business Central / NAV to a CDS Entity, I think the Data Integration project could achieve your needs.
