Purchase requisition – Price

The price fields on the purchase requisition are non-editable for catalogue items. It is expected that a trade agreement be created.


The price fields are only editable for these conditions:
  • Form is opened view AP -> Periodic -> Purchase Requisition -> All purchase requisition, or
  • Line type is “Non-catalogue item”, or
  • User is task owner. Ie. The task is assigned to the user. In other words he/she maybe the purchaser that gets the price.
  • User is approval owner. Ie. The approval is assigned to the user. In other words he/she maybe the manager that approves the final requisition.

For catalogue items on the purchase requisition line can only select between the vendor directly associated with the item and the cheapest vendor as found through the purchase price trade agreements. If another vendor is requested the vendor can be blanked and the user can enter a “Proposed vendor” in the proposed vendor field on the general tab page for the purchase requisition line.

 NOTE: Purchase order line prices and discounts are automatically recalculated when the line is of type catalogue item. The purchase order line price and discounts are not automatically recalculated when the line is of type non-catalogue item or when the line has been through an RFQ process. When the purchase order is created, auto miscellaneous charges for header and lines regardless of item type are automatically recalculated.
So, make sure you set up a trade agreement before the order is created. Otherwise, the order may have an unexpected price.

AX - How to use Map and MapEnumerator

Similar to Set class, Map class allows you to associate one value (the key) with another value. Both the key and value can be any valid X++ type, including objects. The types of the key and the value are specified in the declaration of the map. The way in which maps are implemented means that access to the values is very fast. Below is a sample code that sets and retrieves values from a map. static void checkItemNameAliasDuplicate(Args _args) { inventTable inventTable; Map map; MapEnumerator mapEnumerator; NameAlias nameAlias; int counter = 0; ; map = new Map(Types::String, Types::Integer); //store into map while select inventTable { nameAlias = inventTable.NameAlias; if (!map.exists(nameAlias)) { map.insert(nameAlias, 1); } else { map.insert(nameAlias, map.lookup(nameAlias) + 1); } } //retrieve fro

AX - How to use Set and SetEnumerator

The Set class is used for the storage and retrieval of data from a collection in which the values of the elements contained are unique and serve as the key values according to which the data is automatically ordered. You can create a set of primitive data types or complex data types such as a Class, Record or Container. Below is sample of a set of records. static void _Set(Args _args) {     CustTable       custTable;     Set             set = new Set(Types::Record);     SetEnumerator   setEnumerator;     ;     while select custTable     {         if (custTable && !set.in(custTable))         {             set.add(custTable);         }     }     if (!set.empty())     {         setEnumerator = set.getEnumerator();         setEnumerator.reset();         while (setEnumerator.moveNext())         {             custTable = setEnumerator.current();             info(strfmt("Customer: %1",custTable.AccountNum));         }     } } Common mistake when creating a set of recIds

Import document handling (attachment) files #MSDyn365FO

Out of the box you have limited data entities for migrating attachments. If you search what is already in the AOT, you will see a few various examples. I suggest you look at the LedgerJournalAttachmentsEntity as it is the simplest and cleans to copy from. I wont go into detail but I will give a quick run down of what it looks like. Use the DocuRefEntity as your main datasource. It does most of the work for you. Set your table you want to import for as the child datasource Add the Key You will need to add the postLoad method. There is minor code to update the virtual field FileContents. Below is an export I did for the general journal attachments. The import zip structure should be the same way. It will create the usual artifacts such as the excel, manifest and package header xml files. You will see a Resources folder under that. If you drill down to the resources you will see the attachments. This is an export and it used the document GUID for uniqueness. The other thing is the extensi
