(JPN) Configure for bill of exchange upgrade [AX 2012]

Updated: October 10, 2012

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

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 simplifies how bills of exchange are endorsed. The Preprocessing upgrade checklist task Configure for bill of exchange upgrade opens a form with the same name that allows you to configure certain financial transactions affected by upgrade.

A bill of exchange is endorsed by a company to a vendor with which it has a business relationship. During data upgrade preprocessing, in the Accounts receivable parameters form, on the Settlement tab, the Allow endorsement of BOE check box will appear selected. During data upgrade on the target system, the upgrade framework makes the following changes to a bill of exchange:

  • It generates the bill of exchange transaction for the credit side.

  • It generates the payment journal transaction for the debit side.

  • It updates the bill of exchange with a status of Endorsed.

For each company on the source system, you must specify the following information.

  • The number sequence to use for bills of exchange.

  • A bridge account for the transactions that are created on the target system.


The configuration for the bill of exchange upgrade for each partition. In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, each company is contained in a partition. Each system has at least one default partition, which is named Initial. If you create additional partitions during the Configure partitions step of the Preprocessing upgrade checklist, you must configure the companies in each partition.

Click the Configure for bill of exchange upgrade task to open the Configure for bill of exchange upgrade form. On the form, specify the number sequence and bridge account for bills of exchange for each company as follows.

  1. In the Configure for bill of exchange upgrade form, in the Partition field, select a partition.

  2. For each company in the partition, in the Endorsed bill of exchange voucher field, select the number sequence for bills of exchange.

  3. For each company in the partition, in the Endorse account field, select the bridge account for transactions.

  4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 for each partition.

  5. When you have finished, click Set to ready for upgrade.
