Updated: October 19, 2012

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

If you used virtual companies in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, you might have two or more employee records that are associated with the same Address book ID (partyId). Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 does not support having employee records that share the same Address book ID (partyId). Before you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, for each set of employee records that share the same Address book ID (partyId), you must select one of the employee records to upgrade.

If you are upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 or AX 2012 R3, you must identify a data partition when performing this task. If you have configured multiple partitions, the procedure must be repeated for each partition. For more information about data partitions and upgrade, see Configure partitions.

  1. In the Preprocessing upgrade checklist, expand the Prepare application data for preprocessing node and then select Select which employee number to upgrade.

  2. In the Partition key field, select a partition for preprocessing.

  3. In the Select which employee number to upgrade form, a list of employee records is displayed. This list contains sets of records that share the same Address book ID (partyId). To indicate which records should be upgraded, select the Selected check box for only one record in each set of records that share the same Address book ID (partyId).

  4. Click View related data loss to open the Data loss for discarded EmplIds form, where you can view the data associated with the records that you did not select in step 2. This data will not be upgraded.

  5. Click Close to return to the Select which employee number to upgrade form.

  6. Click Ready for upgrade.
