Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

There are three different expense distribution sheet (EDS) reports:

  • Dimension statement

  • Cost statement, dimensions

  • Cost statement, hierarchy

  1. Click Cost accounting > Setup > Expense distribution sheet. Open one of the EDS reports.

  2. On the General tab, use the Identification list to select the statement that you created in the EDS setup.

  3. In the Calculation type list, select either Period calculation or Special calculation. The calculation type is usually entered in the EDS setup, but you can modify it here before you generate the report. If you select Special calculation, you must select a calculation number in the Calculation number list.

  4. If you did not set up a specific date interval for each dimension in the EDS setup, you can configure date interval settings in the Date interval area before you generate the report.

  5. On the Column definition tab, you can modify the value type and budget model in the appropriate columns.

  6. Click OK to generate the report.

In addition to modifying settings that are common to the types of EDS, when you run a dimension statement, you can modify the dimension setup or the divisions for each column.

When you run a cost statement for dimensions, select any dimension type and the range of dimensions that you need.

When you run a cost statement for hierarchies, select a hierarchy, if you have not already done this, and then select the range of divisions.
