Updating Single Financial Dimension Value [ Easily! ]


Happy 2015!  What an awesome 12 month sprint, as I look back at all of the things I’ve been fortunate to be a part of in the past year it is truly amazing. 

I have some fun new tutorials for you all in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!  In the mean time, I wanted to offer a quick and dirty solution to a common problem I’ve faced.

Today I will dive in to Visual Studio integration with AX 2012.  We will see how to integrate with Azure Service Bus natively, and marshal Brokered Message objects over to X++ Objects, all without breaking a sweat!

SSRS Reports Won't Email as Attachment in Batch


During our AX 2012 upgrade from RTM to R3, we found that we could no longer have reports run in Batch that print via email with an attachment.  This worked perfect in RTM, but R3 seems to have introduced some new .NET based classes that behave differently.  I'll show you a work around we have found, while we await a response from Microsoft.

AX 2012 R3 Upgrade Gotchas


In our upgrade to AX 2012 R3 from AX 2012 RTM ( or R1 ), we've run in to some interesting scenarios.  Be it the flattening of inherited tables ( you'll see the extended/child table in the AOT but it has vanished in the SQL database ), being SURE you have change tracking disabled on your database prior to running the "Data upgrade checklist for in-place upgrades", or now the deployment of AIF inbound ports which extend SysOperation framework.  We'll share our experience so that you can save a few grey hairs!
