How to edit a record in the new look dataverse table view

I have come in today to find the new look table view and it is causing me issues.

 

I need to change a file attachment on a row in a table, which is used for back end processing (flows). Previously I could select the data tab and edit the record using the default form. Now, I am only seeing the excel-like editing view, with no option to open the form. This view only seems to support simple data types (text, numbers, dates) but not more complex types such as attachments. When I select the record I want, I only see options for insert a row above, insert a row below and delete row. No Edit option.

 

This table is not used in any apps as there is only one record and it is for back end processing. Now it looks like I will have to create an app to make one simple change to the file attachment.

 

Am I missing something?

Hi @GerryC66 

ok, I can suggest one work around for this.....

 

you can put following URL in to your browser

https://<<ORGNAME>>/main.aspx?pagetype=entitylist&etn=<<ENTITYLOGICALNAME>>

 

in above URL replace <<ORGNAME>> and <<EntityLOGICALNAME>> to your environment url and relevant entity name.

 

for example your URL should be like this... if entity (or table) is contact..

https://orgc565test.crm11.dynamics.com/main.aspx?pagetype=entitylist&etn=contact

 

this should open a list and from there you can open form and update relevant records....

You can use the advanced find feature from any model-driven app / 'Advanced settings' page. Other than that I am also interested in this topic.

regarding data you can also add any other columns in this edit view and change data in relevant row..

Thanks @MayankP but I have tried this. The edit only seems to work with text, numbers etc but not attachments. I can show the column (which already has a file attachments) but I cannot edit it. I need the form to be able to do this.
