Some newly added enumeration fields overwrite existing fields in a workbook when the Excel add-in is used with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2


This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 for all regions.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You start an instance of Microsoft Excel in which the Microsoft Dynamics AX Add-in for Excel is installed.
  • You add the LedgerGeneralJournalService service in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 as a document data source for a workbook.
  • You use the field chooser to bind some enumeration fields to the workbook.
  • You close the field chooser and then click Refresh.
  • You save and close the workbook.
  • You reopen the workbook and then use the field chooser to add some new enumeration fields to the workbook.
  • You close the field chooser.

In this scenario, when you click Refresh, the fields are enumerated differently than expected. For example, some new fields that you add overwrite some existing fields.
