With cumulative update 7 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, the Compare Tool has been updated to support comparison of two SSRS report designs. This means that when an updated report is released with a cumulative update or hotfix, you can now easily compare the updated report with your existing report to see the differences between the two objects.

The ability to compare report designs has been a heavily requested feature, so we’re happy to announce that it’s available in CU7 of AX 2012 R2.

For step-by-step instructions about how to use the Compare Tool, see How to: Compare Versions of an Object. For more information about this new feature, you may also want to check out What’s New: Comparison Tool Enhancements on the Dynamics AX BI team’s blog.
