Deprecated: Reporting Projects for modifying .moxl files [AX 2012]

Updated: October 24, 2013

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

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, a Reporting Project is used when users modify .moxl files, which are representations of report models in files.



Reason for deprecation

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, the development experience is being aligned with repository-centric development for Microsoft Dynamics AX. Therefore, all model data is stored in the repository and is directly modified on the repository.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. A new project that is known as a Model Project enables direct modification of any reporting data on the repository. Local .moxl files are not required.

For more information, see How to: Create a Repository.
