Adding fields to PurchPurchaseOrder (Purchase order confirmation)

Hi, Sometimes we need to add fields to a report that uses transactional data. Normally these have their own transactional tables such as CustInvoiceJour, however this report is different. If you check the method \Classes\PurchPurchaseOrderDP\createData you can see that the DP class uses PurchLineAllVersions and PurchTableAllVersions to get its data for the report. We will […]

If you are developing a larger auto-design report which groups data together it might be worth adding document navigation to the query to allow the end user to jump between sections of the report:     To do this you will need to set up grouping on your table to allow the jumping. The label […]

Formatting on fields within SSRS

29 September, 2013 (01:18) | Uncategorized | By: Howard Webb

SSRS pulls the formatting direct from the field’s EDT in AX, however this only works if the field is on the report table and is not a aggregate function. As such it does not really work for values that will be used in a header or footer section. There are plenty of examples of this […]
