AX2012 Excel Add-Ins: get Financial Dimension's Description

Question Status

Marc Puig asked a question on 11 Feb 2013 7:08 AM


I need to get the financial dimension's name/description in an excel exportation. I use query objects to take the data. Does anybody know any way I can get this description?? The dimension's value is mapped directly using the query in excel when I have a field 'DefaultDimension', but not the description.


Thank you for help,

With BI360 you have this functionality for both Excel Exports and Excel Report Writing
