Setup for Trade Agreement Journals in Microsoft Dynamics AX

by | Updated August 16, 2016 | Dynamics AX, Procurement and Sourcing

There are many white papers and blog postings about trade agreements in Microsoft Dynamics AX. They describe the details of the decision which need to be made in order to set up a trade agreement. But they are missing the basics. Where do you go to access the setup tables?  Are all of the tables unique or are some of them shared?

Trade agreements are available in Dynamics AX for Price, Line discount, Multiline discount and Total Discount. I will outline each of these throughout the post.

Relation “Price (purch.)” and “Price (sales)”

i.      Note that there is an option of Item code/Group from within the journal.  This field is not set up in the standard discount forms.  You would need to set it up from the view details form from within the journal.  It is not recommended to use this feature.
