  • Blog Post: Rebuilding the dimension set balance through code

    The dimension set balance (DSB) rebuild will recreate all balances for each dimension set that is initialized. It can be performed for a single company or for all companies at once. The DSB rebuild needs to be run if the detailed GL data is deleted or modified by any customization or other means outside...
  • Blog Post: Clear the dimension set balance ledger dimension cache

    The dimension set balance (DSB) rebuild and update will generate the ledger dimensions specific to the dimension set from the ledger dimensions in the GL. The dimension set ledger dimensions that are generated are cached to increase the performance of the DSB rebuild and update. The most common use...
  • Blog Post: Update for a data problem with the IsCredit field in the GeneralJournalAccountEntry table

    The GeneralJournalAccountEntry table contains the detailed General Ledger entries. The IsCredit field is the correct and easy way to determine if the entry is a debit (false) or a credit (true). From Dynamics AX 2012 RTM until a hot fix that was released on November 6, 2012, there was a problem where...
  • Blog Post: Default main account with an invalid chart of accounts: locating and fixing

Account structure %1, for the combination %2, is not valid for ledger %3. The message contains the account structure from the ledger, the combination containing the string...
  • Blog Post: Batch processing for dimension set balance rebuilds

    When performing dimension set balance rebuilds in a batch, be sure to schedule the batches far enough apart that they do not run concurrently. Doing this will eliminate any chance for contention since a rebuild has to process the entire general journal. Dimension set balance updates are optimized...
  • Blog Post: Step 6: Implement confirmation/posting of your document

    Posting of your document usually consist of creating accounting entries in ledger and updating your document to posted state. Source Document Framework will help you create accounting. a) Add code necessary to perform state update of your document during posting (for instance, you can add a field...
  • Blog Post: Step 5: Add code to distribute and journalize source document amounts

    There might be a need to create new monetary amounts but that is optional and you may find existing monetary amounts sufficient. It depends if existing monetary amounts are a good fit for your document and have appropriate names to display on accounting distributions form. Either new or existing MonetaryAmount...
  • Blog Post: Step 4: Add Source Document Framework forms to your document UI

    This initial wiring will just display empty windows as you didn’t create code which would calculate distributions. But it is good to do it now to be able to have a quick visual test when you later add code related to distributions. a) Make sure you supplied both Label and SingularLabel for your...
  • Blog Post: Step 3: Perform initial wiring to Source Document Framework – document classes

    Now you need to implement few classes representing your source document. a) Create a class which extends SourceDocumentType. Using framework naming standards name this class MyDocumentSourceDocumentType. Implement all abstract methods (see examples in the following existing classes: CustInvoiceSourceDocType...
  • Blog Post: Step 2: Perform initial wiring to Source Document Framework – tables and maps

    The Source Document Framework (Accounting Framework) will provide functionality necessary to record business events and create accounting for the newly created document – accounting distributions and subledger journal entries. But you will need to inform the framework how to deal with your document...
  • Blog Post: Step 1: Prerequisite - create your document

    At this point you should not be concerned about Source Document Framework, but only about the document storage, UI and perhaps some domain logic responsible for processing the document. Storage usually consists of two tables, one for storing document header information (MyDocumentHeader) and another...
  • Blog Post: Extending the Source Document Framework

    The upcoming series of blog posts is created to help developers new to Source Document Framework flatten the learning curve and quickly get up and running with their own source document extensions. The information presented here is covering the mainstream scenario. It is divided into 6 steps: ...
