Media on temporary tables

I talked about “Tools and Techniques for Optimizing Business Central” at DOK Nordic in Odense in April and at DynamicsMinds in Portoroz last week. One topic I covered was about the benefits of using Media instead of BLOB. Also, I warned about the risk of unreferenced data when working with Media or MediaSet data type.
