copy project template

Posted on by 5

When I try to copy a template with "Copy Project" -function, AX add "_0000" to the project I want to copy the structure to?

When I try to remove "_000", by enabling manual assigning of ProjectID's - AX says that I have to have a subproject?

    I have just realized that I am not suppose to use "Parent project" -field but the "New project" -field.

    I can only use template for new projects; not projects that has already been created.

    Thanks for all input!

    Good morning flunte70,

    Provided that you have the correct user rights, you should see a separate module with the name "Data import export framework".

    Best regards,

    Ludwig

    Thanks, I'll check if we have Data Import/Export Framework installed (as I cannot find it)?

    Hi flunte70,

    As workaround, you can also use the Data import export framework to import the sub-projects from e.g. an Excel file. This would initially take some time to find the correct fields to be filled in, but would save thereafter a lot of time compared to creating 177 manually.

    Hi,

    I can replicate the same issue in one of the environments. It is starting from 00 instead of 01.

    Sorry guys, I have started to create all the 177 sub-projects manually - which will probably take som hours - but that's just too bad...

    Thanks for your efforts...

    We have autonumbering, so if I create a sub-project, it will be _0001...

    Looks like something is customized here.

    Can you try creating a sub-project and check the number getting generated?
