It would be nice if the AL Table Proxy Generator (altpgen.exe) had more control over the objects to be created, such as the name of the file, the object name of the table or table extension, the object id of each individual object, and the path where the AL files are created/updated.

New-NAVCrmTable for AL would be good -
1) powershell tooling is good standard :-)
2) producing "ready to use" updated objects with specified NAME and ID - and keeping any existing field ID (from previous object version) is good practise.
DataVerse integration is great - deserves A1 tooling, altpgen.exe is a bit rough

New-NAVCrmTable had "-Name 'CRM Account','CRM Product' " for the object name of the table and "-ObjectId 50500,50501" for the object ID of each object and txt2al.exe created the name of the file in Base Application style instead of "

.al" which altpgen.exe does.
