Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 - What's New for Developers in Feature area of Client

What can you do?

When you install the Microsoft Dynamics AX client, AX32.exe registers as a COM server. You can use the Dynamics AX COM object to programmatically open a specified form. In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, you can also specify the partition to use with the form.

You can use the API in Office Add-ins for Microsoft Dynamics AX to programmatically modify a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or Microsoft Word document that includes data that you exported from a form. You can also use the API to lock the data that appears in an Excel spreadsheet.

Why is this important?

You use a partition with the Dynamics AX COM object to specify the business entity that includes the data that you want to appear in the form. The partition prevents the form from displaying data from other business entities.

The Office Add-ins API gives you additional flexibility to programmatically customize a spreadsheet or document file that includes Microsoft Dynamics AX data. You can use the API with a spreadsheet or document that you created by exporting data from a form. For example, you can lock a spreadsheet to prevent people from changing the data fields and records that appear in the spreadsheet.

How was this performed in previous versions?

These features were not available.
