Deprecated: (BRA) CNPJ or CPF validation by using categories [AX 2012]

Updated: October 24, 2013

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

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, a category is used to classify each customer and vendor as an organization, person, or foreigner. This information is used to validate the subscription number as CNPJ or CPF. The category was removed in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.



Reason for deprecation

AX 2012 identifies an organization and a person by using the record type that is specified when the party to which customers, vendors, and legal entities are related is created. The record type is now used to determine the validation of CNPJ/CPF for customers, vendors, and legal entities.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. The feature was replaced by the record type that is specified for the party as part of the global address book. When the Record type is Organization, the CNPJ/CPF is validated as CNPJ. When the Record type is Person, the CNPJ/CPF is validated as CPF. If the primary address of a customer or vendor is in a country/region that differs from the primary address of the legal entity, the customer or vendor is recognized as a foreigner.

For more information, see Global address book overview.
