I have a webpart that consumes and displays items from a list that has an external content type.

The problem is that the list is consuming the wrong font and I would like to know

If it is possible to change the external data source of the list and how it can be done.


You can change the current External Content Type data source, by doing the following:

  • Open SharePoint Designer.
  • From the left side > click on the External Content Type.
  • Right-click your External Content Type > Select Edit External Content Type

  • From the above ribbon, Click on Operation View.
  • Click on Add connection button to add a new data source.
  • Or Edit Operation to edit the current External Content Type operations.
  • Or Remove Operation, to delete the selected External Content Type operations.
