Deprecated: Fill Utility [AX 2012]

Updated: October 28, 2013

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

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, the Fill Utility lets users make mass changes to master records and some transactional records.



Reason for deprecation

The Fill Utility is being deprecated for several reasons:

  • The tool does not perform any validation checks before it executes commands. Therefore, data can become corrupted.

  • SQL can be used to update multiple records much more efficiently and accurately. By giving this power to a SQL database administrator, we help guarantee data integrity.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. The feature has been removed and replaced by the use of standard SQL updates. For more information, see update_recordset.

Modules affected

All (A subset of tables is supported within each module.)

Changes to installation

This feature will be removed from the installation and license configuration. The Fill Utility will no longer appear under Administration.

Changes to upgrade

This change does not affect application upgrade.
