Convert Field Values During The Importing Process Through DIXF

In the last two articles we discussed how to:

Today we will discuss how we can convert the field values during the importing process.

Sometimes we may need to convert some of the master data values, especially when we planing to import data from a legacy to new system. For example, assume that one of your clients request to reclassify the vendors from a business line to a new one. in this case you can set up DIXF to convert the old business line value to the new value instead of change the business line for these vendors manually.

The following example we'll show how to convert the Vendor Line of Business during data import process.However we can use the same approach to change the values for any other fields.

Assign Default Values Automatically During the importing process through DIXF

During the preparation to import data, we often find ourselves having to fill a lot of values that are often the default values. For example, language, currency, customer group or group of suppliers etc....

In this article i will show you how we can assign default values during the importing process through DIXF.

The following example illustrate how to automatically assign default values for vendor currency and vendor group during the importing process. However we can use the same approach to assign default values for any other fields.

Configure DIXF To Automatically Generate Unique Key Using Number Sequence

Do we really need to manually add the reference numbers in the source file when we planning to importing data through the Data import export framework ? No we don't need to do that anymore :)

In this article i will show you how we can Configure DIXF to automatically generate unique key using number sequence during the importing process.

The following example illustrate how to generate vendor accounts automatically during the importing process. However we can use the same approach to generate the unique key for any entities.

AX 2012 | moving average costing method - Part 4

In this part we will discuss production costing with moving average. If you use moving average in production costing, costs can be based on the current costs of raw materials rather than on the cost price that was originally registered for the item master. When the finished good is reported as finished, the cost reflects the estimated product cost calculation that is executed by a release of production orders.

The original cost calculation of the finished good might have happened months ago, and thus it might be outdated. With moving average, the result of a product cost calculation that is executed during the estimation process can be adopted rather than the cost from the original cost calculation of the finished good.

AX 2012 | moving average costing method - Part 5

This is the last part of the  moving average costing method in Dynamics AX 2012. in this part we will discuss the reports which show how moving average was calculated.

If you sort transactions on the inventory value report according to transaction time, transactions are listed chronologically, and you can view the costs from a moving average perspective. This way, you can verify that the cost of a moving average product has not been changed retroactively, even though the product has, for example, been adjusted by using backdating.
