When developing a report in Visual Studio 2010 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 I wanted to include the parameters quoted in the “No Rows Message.”  This message is simply the text that is inserted into the report when no data is found.


Labels Anyone?

Typically speaking, printing labels is an easy thing to do, right?  Anyone who has ever used the label printing in Word knows you can just enter some information into a little dialog box, choose a label type, and load up the label in your printer to print. Maybe those same people even took it a step further and tried a mail merge to their label output.  Sweet!

Microsoft has truly taken advantage of the many third-party products that have enhanced the usability and breadth of the Dynamics AX product over the years. Sometimes we forget that Dynamics AX was an acquired product, as many Microsoft offerings are, and in order to be successful in the early years while the product matures, ISV solutions become essential to that success. One of those products that I have a special admiration for is Bottomline Technologies’ Create!form Suite.

Microsoft’s approach to analyzing information for business decision making in Dynamics AX has steadily matured from the perspective (no pun intended) of both a presentation layer to the user and a development layer for the technical resource.  What was known as Business Scorecard in AX v4.0 has become a much better experience in Role Centers in AX2009 and 2012, firmly based upon SharePoint fundamentals.


The Evolution of Reporting in Microsoft Dynamics AX

Dynamics AX , ERP , Infrastructure , Reporting , SSRS No Comments »

If you’ve been around reporting in Microsoft Dynamics AX for the past six years like I have, you’ve witnessed and accepted the gradual ascent of the report evolution from X++ reports to SSRS reports. Or you’ve done a good job avoiding it. If you categorize yourself into the latter half of that statement, you are running out of time…and options. In Dynamics AX v4.0, Microsoft introduced an acronym to the AX world in SSRS. In Dynamics AX 2012, SQL Server Reporting Services is now the mainstream reporting product, like it or not. I think you’ll like it.
