Specify Whether a Form Opens for Modification and Data Entry [AX 2012]

Updated: January 27, 2012

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

When you create a form, you can specify what actions the user is allowed to perform on the data in the underlying table. You restrict access by using properties on the form data source. These properties are shown in the following table.




Allows modifications to the data source


Allows new records to be created in the data source


Allows deletions in the data source


If you allow the contents of the data source to be modified, created, and/or deleted, they are exposed to a security risk. To help reduce this risk (if it is determined to be unacceptable for your data source), set the AllowEdit, AllowCreate, and/or AllowDelete property values on your form to No.
