Can someone tell me CONTACTPERSON table is linked to what all tables in AX2009? From which tables, data comes to the CONTACTPERSON table?
Is there any way I can know the records in CONTACTPERSON table are coming from which tables?
The only option would be to look at data in contact person table and then figure out relations OR see what relations are mentioned under the contactperson table. Mostly it's customer / vendor and linkage is through DirPartyTable. It's very generic table to store contacts. ContactPerson is a table so data is store there itself but data can't be there on it's own, it's related to other tables as i mentioned above.
I did see the relations for contactperson table with other tables. In my case, my contactperson table has 6 million records(most of them are duplicates). And I need to clean up the duplicates. I see that this table is related to DirPartyTable and this connection has almost all records like (5.9M). I could get values for DIRPARTYTABLE but the new question is which are all the tables is DIRPARTYTABLE mapped to other than customers and vendors?
Worker is another table that store linkage to DirPartyTable. It's going to be big effort in finding all relations. You can filter records in DirPartyTable that doesn't belong to customer / vendor like this.
Select * from DIRPARTYTABLE where recid not in (select party from CUSTTABLE) and recid not in (select party from vendtable)
Given you are looking at a huge dataset from clean-up perspective, you need to find patterns and then use them to clean up your data.
E.g. If contact "Dev Inspirer" is there multiple times, try to find how it's linked to dir party and other tables. once you have that filter all such duplicates. these patterns will help clean data in bulk.
In addition, when you look at global address book record, you can click on roles tab and that will show you where that GAB record is being used.
Please help verify answer(s) if they guide you in right direction so other community members can also benefit from your question with verified answer.
If the data model references are updated correctly, you can find all table relations in the table xRefTableRelation.
You can update the references using the next procedure:
- Open the Tools menu, and then choose Cross-reference > Periodic > Update.
- The Update cross-reference dialog appears in the workspace.
- Only select the option Update data model. And click OK.
