Setting Financial Dimension Values in AX 2012

by | Updated August 15, 2016 | Development, Dynamics AX

In AX 2012 you can set the value for a specific dimension using code similar to what is below.

DimensionAttributeValue         dimAttrValue;
DimensionAttribute              dimAttr;
DimensionAttributeValueSetStorage davss;
RecId                defaultDimension;

davss = DimensionAttributeValueSetStorage::find(this.DefaultDimension);

dimAttr = DimensionAttribute::findByName(‘MyDimensionName’);
dimAttrValue = DimensionAttributeValue::findByDimensionAttributeAndValue(dimAttr, “DimensionValue”, false, true);
if(dimAttrValue)
{
davss.addItem(dimAttrValue);
this.DefaultDimension = davss.save();
}

    dimAttrValue seems to be always true.

    Hello!

    There can be instances where the value isn’t found (dimAttr is a table buffer, so if a record isn’t found, this will be false), so at that point, an else statement could be used to set a predefined value if desired.
    dimAttr = DimensionAttribute::findByName(‘MyDimensionName’);
    The above line is looking for a record in the table. The code example simply doesn’t have an else condition to do something if a record is not found in the table.

    Regards,
    Taylor
