is it possible to use Sql Server "Indexed Views" in any way in AX 2012? We will get the enterprise edition of SQL Server and i found this feature really interesting.

If yes: Is there any documentation how to use indexed views in Sql Server 2012?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Francisco,

thanks for answering.

But i did not found a property in AOT which give me the same functionality. Indexed Views are a feature from SQL Server (see

I thought the only way is to use OdbcConnection or CCADOConnection.

Hi Frank,

I don't think Indexed view is supported in AX2012. On the other hand, support of "included columns"  is added in AX2012, but you might already know that.



kind regards,

Hi Dom,

well, i have heard about "included columns". That will help a little - but indexed views would be much nicer :).
