  • Types of fields in Dynamics CRM

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to write a short note on types of fields in Dynamics CRM.

    So, below goes list of types:

    Single line of text

    Multiple line of text

    Option set

    Two options

    Whole numbers

    Floating point



    Date and Time


    Names of them are pretty self-explanatory, but few words I'd like to add.

    Single line of text is good for storing some small portions of text like first name, last name, title of book, title of product etc. Due to this it has limitation to 4K of data.

    Multiple line is larger, up to 1 Mb of data. 

    Option set is a list of specific items. They can be local or global. Local means that they can be applied to only one entity. … more
