I have a question (or a few) about the financial part of AX. I know you can setup a method of payment in the AR/AP > Setup > Payment > Methods of payment. I've quickly read up on this in the manual but other than that I have no real experience with this part of AX.
My first question is about the file formats. There's a large quantity (possibly old and no longer applicable) of file formats already in the system. Is there an easy way to check how these file formats are set up? By googling I found these are generally extensions of the "VendOutPaym" class but I am no real programmer so the coding I found in these classes makes little to no sense to me.
Next question; is it hard to set up a new file format? Are these really only created by coding new classes or did I miss a wizard/form somewhere?
Next! I found a post somewhere stating there have been updates from Microsoft which enable SEPA support. According to what I read these updates should be available to any version of AX after AX 4.0 SP2. We should have this version (application version is 4.0.2501.116) but is there a way I can double check to see if it these Microsoft updates were installed and SEPA is really supported?
Thanks in advance for any and all info you can supply in regards to my questions!
The existing file formats are based on definitions created by bank or central organizations to define a standard. Possibly you can find the file format descriptions on the internet. The Dutch formats are available.
To create a new file format, you need to create new classes to accomplish it. So this is a customization and requires development skills. There is no wizard for this.
The first idea from Microsoft was to develop SEPA also for AX 4.0, but due to delays of the SEPA project and the release of then AX 2012, the development for AX 4.0 was stopped and Microsoft focused on AX 2009 and AX 2012. There are no official Microsoft releases for SEPA in AX 4.0. There are some partners in Europe that back ported the AX 2009 objects to older versions.
All the required information neatly fitted into a single post, thanks a lot! Guess I can't put off having to contact our MS partner now...
