DIXF – Double entities in R3 CU10

Any version prior to CU10 has about 238 entities. AX 2012 R3 – CU10 doubles the number of DIXF entities (~467 entities). These new entities are in areas such as

1. Accounts payable, 10
2. Accounts receivable, 13
3. Cash and bank management, 7
4. General ledger, 23
5. Human resources, 27
6. Inventory and Warehouse management, 19
7. Organization administration, 27
8. Procurement and sourcing, 27
9. Product information management, 8
10. Production control, 17
11. Project management and accounting, 27
12. Sales and marketing, 4
13. System administration, 6
14. Travel and expense, 11

If your version is not R3 CU10, you can still apply KB 3061216 to support new DIXF entities. After applying the hot fix and you still don’t see new entities, you might delete them all and reopen the Target entities form

SSRS Report in R3 – VS 2012 vs. VS 2010

In R3 environment, when I tried to to edit a report,  i received the following message
“Unable to preview the report, install the Business Intelligence Development Studio feature of Microsoft SQL Server For more information”


AOT > Visual Studio Projects > Select a project > Right Click > Edit


Notice that VS 2010 is still being used as a default one.


AX R3 still needs to integrate with Visual Studio 2010 and therefore you have to have BIDS (Business Intelligence Development Studio). You can use a SQL Server 2008 R2 installation image to install it (it’s one of the components you can select during installation of “A new standalone server or additional components” on the client machine.
