(RUS) Increase string size of extended data types [AX 2012]

Updated: March 3, 2014

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

When you upgrade from a Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 system that has a GLS-EE/RU layer, the Increase string size of extended data types code upgrade task allows you to check your custom code for changes to the Name extended data type (EDT) and increase its maximum string length as needed. The task creates a development project in the Data Dictionary that includes the larger string size. This process helps you prevent mapping errors during data upgrade.

NoteNote

Customization of the Name EDT for Russian and Eastern European localizations was provided as part of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 SP1. For more information about this service pack, see Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 on CustomerSource. Logon is required.

The following table lists possible upgrade scenarios and the action that the upgrade framework takes for each.

Scenario

Action

SP1 was installed on the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 source system.

The user is prompted to allow the length property of the Name EDT to be modified automatically.

SP1 was not installed on the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 source system.

A message informs the user that no action is being taken, because SP1 was not installed.

Customized code that changes the length property of the Name EDT was installed on the source system.

A message informs the user that no action is being taken, and that the Name EDT must be manually customized before upgrade.

To detect the affected data types and to create a project to modify them, complete the following procedure.

  1. Open the AOD code upgrade checklist (System administration > Setup > Checklists > Code upgrade checklist > AOD code upgrade checklist).

  2. Ensure that all of the previous checklist items of the AOD code upgrade checklist have been marked as complete, then click Increase string size of extended data types.

  3. In the Increase string size of extended data types form, a line is displayed for each extended data type where the StringSize property in the baseline layer is greater than the StringSize property in the current Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 or R3 layer.

  4. For each extended data type that you wish to modify, mark the Selected field. The extended data type string length will be increased to the value specified in the String size recommended field.

  5. In the String size recommended field, you can manually set the maximum string size or accept the recommended value.
