Use the Table node to specify that one or more of the variables for a product model should display the values selected from one or more fields in a specific Microsoft Dynamics AX table.


This information applies only to Product builder.

  1. Click Product information management > Common > Product builder > Product models.

  2. Double-click a product model.

  3. Click Product model.

  4. Select the Tree tab in the lower pane.

  5. Right-click the Modeling tree node.

  6. Click New > Table node. A new node is added to the bottom of the modeling tree. To insert a node into a particular position in the tree, drag it from the node list displayed on the left.

  7. On the Table value tab, select the Microsoft Dynamics AX table that values should be retrieved from.

  8. Click the Look up tab, and then specify which records in the table that values should come from.

  9. Select either Value or Variable to determine the type of value to specify in the Outcomes field.

  10. In the Field name field, select any field from the table specified on the Field: tab.

    A table field that is specified here will be used as a look up-key to locate the information from the selected table.

  11. Depending on what you selected in the Allocation of field, you can specify a look up-key value in the Outcomes field, either as a fixed value or by reference to one of the variables for the product model.

  12. Click the Field: tab to specify which table fields to retrieve data from and which variables that the values from the table should be assigned to.

  13. Enter one line for each table field to transfer a value from. On each line, specify the names of the required table fields in the Field name field and of the variables that should receive each table field value in the Variable field.
