KB3034554 - Ledger journal performance [AX 2012]

A bit of a spotlight on this KB. I wasn’t aware of for some time and now it is included in AX2012R3CU9.

Problem was that each line insert/update/delete caused a tax calculation. This was more prominent when importing large journals (several thousand lines).

The solution Microsoft provides in this KB is a technical solution. It gives you the ability to ignore tax calculations if you wanted to do it while importing (via AIF or custom code).

I have written something previously that discusses this.

Note: This new field is not part of the DIXF journal entity.

Here is a work around. Because the Fields in the query are set to Dynamic=No. Lets add it ourselves

Right click and add the field.

Refresh the target entity by either deleting and creating again. Or re generating the mapping.

Below I did not add a new field to the DMF staging table but you probably should to do it properly. I am just illustrating an idea.

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
