This section lists common issues encountered when importing, exporting, and migrating data.
Issue: After installing the Data Import/Export Framework you get a number of compile errors related to missing macros.
In the AOT, examine the macros node. There should be AxdAdvancedLedgerEntryDCT and AxdCustomerTransactionDCT macros in the node. If you do not see these macros, then do a compare on the DataContainerTypes macro to make the macros visible.
Issue: When you enter Setup > Data import/export framework parameters you get the error message: "Assembly containing type Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.DMF.ServiceProxy.DmfEntityProxy is not referenced".
Create the structure c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Assembly\GAC_MSIL\Microsoft.DynamicsAX.DMR.ServiceProxy\v4.0_1.0.0_31bf3856ad364e35\and then paste the file Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.DMF.ServiceProxy.DLL, from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Data Import Export Framework Server Component\.
Restart the AOS, and compile into CIL.
Issue: Importing Ledger Dimensions in Data Import/Export Framework in AX 2012 R2 does not function. You get the message "Financial Dimension 0 does not exist" when importing ledger dimension values.
Contact support for a workaround.
Unable to select ODBC connections created as System DSNs. You get the message: “System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.”
Create a User DSN instead.
Issue: Creating a custom entity that imports to a table with a primary index that allows duplicates will import only one record.
