Not able to create new employees in AX 2012

This question is answered

Hi,

I have configured a new VPC of AX 2012 in my laptop.  In the default "CEU" company, I was able to create employees.

Then I created a new company and started doing setups on my own. When I went to HR module and tried to create an employee, the "Hire new worker" button is always inactive in the "New employee creation" dialog. Hence I am not able to create any employee in this company. 

Also now when I go to the default companies, I face the same problem.  Hence now I am not able to create employees in any of the companies in my VPC.

It looks like a functional issues.

Has anybody faced this issue before? Any help or suggestion is highly appreciated...

  • It is a number sequence problem. Find the employee or worker number sequence (sorry can't remember the reference) un 'continuous' and change the 'next' number or contestant.

  • The "New New Worker" button should become available when you enter the minimum amount of data in the "Create New Worker" form. I believe all you need to enter is the first name of the worker and then the button should become available.

    For specific procedures about creating a new worker, see the following help topic:

  • Thanks for the reply...

    As I mentioned earlier that I was able to create employees initially however when I created a new company, I could no longer create employees in any of the companies...

    Not sure, may be it can be bug too..

  • Thanks Tim...

    I increased the counter and then I could create new employees....

  • The number sequence resolved this issue for me too
