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

Click Project management and accounting > Common > Projects > Project contracts. On the Action Pane, click Project contract. To modify an existing project contract, open the contract. In the Project contracts form, click Edit.

Use this form to create and maintain project contracts.

Project contracts contain invoicing information, such as accounts receivable information and addresses. By using a project contract, you can invoice several projects at the same time, and you can follow the same invoicing procedure for each subproject in a project structure for the same contract. However, if you create a forecast on a subproject, the elimination date that is applied is the end date of the parent project.

A subproject can inherit the project contract of the parent project. If you change the project contract of a parent project, you can manage which subprojects are affected by using the Update subprojects form. This form opens when you modify a project that has one or more subprojects.


The controls that are described in this topic apply only to your country/region. For full documentation of this form, see the following topic or topics:
