Are there forbidden names that can't be given to a legal entity code?

Posted on by 14,849

Dear

I noticed from experience that there are names that can't be given to a legal entity code Id

Names like GL . I named a legal entity GL and when generating the number sequence i found some number sequences didn't get populated

Is this documented somewhere or am i mistaken

Can i name a legal after a country code like usa or uae or ksa or will this cause me problems later

    Hi. Do you have any known issues with using & symbol in legal entity code? For example, A&B.

    Never seen GL being an issue you should try deleting and creating again, though normally companies are setup with 3 digit alphanumber characters e.g. GV1. Also stay away from using special characters like & -

    Legal entity names should not cause any trouble, they are sitting in their own table/field. You should stick to alphanumeric values with 3 letters, no special characters and you should be fine. Following Ludwig's suggestion it could be GL1 then.

    If that is not the case, it could be considered as a bug and you might want to raise a ticket with Microsoft, if the issue you have mentioned above is reproducible in a Standard AX application like a Demo VM.

    Hi Silvano,

    Most companies I work with make use of numbers to differentiate between their legal entities.

    Have you considered this option to avoid those naming convention issues that you mentioned?

    Best regards,

    Ludwig
