Making Cross-Company Tables in AX Semi-Company Aware

Making cross-company tables in ax semi-company aware

When using AX, there are a lot of times where you want data to go across companies, but still need some records to be company specific. The easiest way to accomplish this is by creating a cross-company table in AX. You would do this by first setting the to-be, non-company specific with the below metadata (circled in red):

Cross Company Table

You would then add a field called “CompanyID” or something similar. I would highly recommend against using DataAreaID. Then on the table you would add a find method that would take the key fields. The find should look something like this:

public static <Table> find(Key1 _key1, Key2 _key2, etc., boolean _update = false)
{
	<Table> table;
	table.selectForUpdate(_update);
	select table
		where table.CompanyID == curext()
			&& table.Key1 == _key1
			… etc
	if (!table)
	{
		select table
		where table.Key1 == _key1
			… etc
}
return table;
}
