Updated: October 18, 2011

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

You can create reports in Microsoft Dynamics AX by using Microsoft Dynamics AX reporting tools for Visual Studio or by using MorphX reporting tools. This section deals with creating reports using MorphX reporting tools.

You can create a new report under the Reports node of the AOT.

Create a report

To create a new report, right-click the Reports node in the AOT and then click New Report. For more information, see Walkthrough: Creating Reports in the AOT (MorphX Reporting Tools).

Create a query

After you create a report, you can specify the information that the report contains by creating a query. A Data Source node is nested under the report node, and the Query node is nested below that Data Source node. For more information, see How to: Create Queries by using the AOT, How to: Create Queries by Using X++, and Walkthrough: Creating Reports in the AOT (MorphX Reporting Tools).

Create a report design

After you create the query for the report, you can specify the layout of the data in the report by generating a report design. For more information, see Report Designs (MorphX Reporting Tools), How to: Specify a Report Design by Using X++ (MorphX Reporting Tools), and Walkthrough: Creating Reports in the AOT (MorphX Reporting Tools).

Import or compile a MorphX report

When you import or compile a MorphX report, the permissions that are associated with the objects in the report are not automatically created. If you expand the permissions node of the report, permissions will be shown, but they will not be persisted by default. To persist the permissions, you must expand the permissions node and explicitly save the report.
