Advanced bank reconciliation [AX 2012 R3]

This is only my opinion but I feel Advanced bank reconciliation has caused a lot of confusion. This is because Microsoft has made it very technical (very cool but a bit painful first time). Also, I feel some of the documentation is lacking in detail. Below is my quick summary for anyone who wants to start with this topic. To import a statement file: Official Microsoft Links Supported formats are very limited. But the big one is the BAI2 is very common but not all banks use it. Good non Microsoft Links Same as the Microsoft one but with screenshots. For developers who want to support different file formats. I would recommend using transformation class, rather than xslt. Follow this step by step in detail. You will want to extend on it to include additional fields etc but a very good start.

Remember Index Hint is deprecated [AX 2012]

I still see code around that uses the Index Hint. We have to remember that it has been deprecated for a long time now and is ignored. Item Description Reason for deprecation This feature was rarely used. This feature began to create complications in the evolving development environment, so the feature was removed. Replaced by another feature No. There is no supported replacement for this feature. Modules affected This feature was not particular to any application module. Changes to installation This change does not affect application installation. Changes to upgrade Any legacy custom X++ code that uses the index hint clause still compiles and runs in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
