I have SharePoint list having External Data column. Now I want to refresh that column data.

I can do it through UI using refresh button at top on the column. But I am not sure whether it will change list item modified and modified by as I tried to find it on google but did not get my answer.

I just want to make sure If I refresh data it should not change modified and modified by.

Your help would be much appreciated.

  • At least the version isn't updated in these scenarios. I have a previous answer regarding that in here. – moe Jun 13 '17 at 6:43
  • I agree but as I am aware external column's value does not get change automatically if you change into source – Dhaval Kariya Jun 13 '17 at 6:51

Yes I found my answer. It updates modified and modified by. I tried by creating sample list and tested with that list before doing into actual list.
