I am trying to export a .XPO from AX09 to AX3.0 but i am having a unknown export file format issue.
I was told that you could alter something in the .xpo and then the file could be read, i can't seem to find the error/lines.
(What to change here?)
Please help, thanks in advance.
I can't give you any direct answer (it's been so many years since I saw these versions for the last time, and I definitely don't remember all little details of their .xpo formats).
But I have a hint for you - create a table in AX 3.0, export it and look at the format.
Also don't forget that AX 3 didn't support Unicode, therefore you may need to change the encoding too, not just the actual text.
Try creating identical objects (like an empty class) on both versions and export them, then compare the XPO files using Notepad++ Compare plugin or something like that.
I have tried comparing and changing what i think could be the problem. But i can't find the correct line to change. But what do you mean by encoding?
I mean character encoding.
But i don't see any unicode in the 09 .xpo ?
What do you mean by "to see unicode"? Encoding defines how characters are stored in bytes. What you see in text editors is the text, regardless of which encoding it uses.
Open the XPO with Notepad, then select File > Save As. You will see the Encoding dropdown list on the bottom, you can save it in a different encoding if you want to.
Their meaning is explained in the link Martin has sent.
Thanks Martin, and thank you Vilmos for the explanation.
