Hi All,

How can I count how many Links on a document from C/AL code?

If I open the form(my attachment) manually, I can see there are 2 links.

    Count the number of records in table 2000000068 "Record Link" for the given record.

    Table "Record Link" is based on RecordID and the main part of RecordID is the table part. RecordID field can not be filtered directly and you have to use some trick:

    RecRef := YourRecord.GETTABLE;
    RecordLink.SETFILTER(RecordID, '%1', FORMAT(RecRef.ID));

    and now you are able count resulting recordset.

    Hi Lubost,

    thank you for the code, appreciate it. It work with some modification :

    RecRef := YourRecord.GETTABLE;
    RecordLink.SETRANGE(RecordID, RecRef.RECORDID);

    Just 'discovered' Notes are record links of type Note.
    So I just added this to count the notes.
    RecordLink.SETRANGE(Type, RecordLink.Type::Note);
