As part of my GuygAX project, I found that a lot of data within the HR module was missing, because it Dynamics AX is not has not been published wit the localization details for the realms of Faerûn. One case in point is that there are over 99 different languages within Faerûn that I needed to load into the HR module. Although loading the data by hand is possible, I wanted to find a better way to get the information loaded.

In this walkthrough I will show how I used the Excel Add-In for Dynamics AX to make the this process a matter of cutting and pasting.

One case in point is that there are over 99 different languageswithin Faerûn that I needed to load into the HR module.

  • 2. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesWhen looking the language codes within the HR employeeand applicant records, they were initially missing.
  • 3. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesIn order to use the Excel Add-In to load the data, we needto find the table within Dynamics AX that is related to theform. To do this, right-mouse-click on the form that youwant to import the data into, and then click thePersonalize menu item.
  • 4. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesThis will open up the Personalization dialog. Select theQuery tab, and you will be able to see all of the tables andqueries that are related to the form. In this case, all of thelanguage information is stored within theHcmLanguageCode table.
  • 5. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesNow open up Excel, select the Dynamics AX tab on theribbon bar, and then click on the Add Data menu button,and choose the Add Tables option from the drop down.
  • 6. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesThis will open up the table selection dialog. In the Filterfield, you can type in the table name that you are lookingfor, and then select it, and click on the > button to selectthe table and add it to the worksheet.
  • 7. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesOn the left hand side of Excel, the Table Explorerreference panel will be displayed. Just drag the fields overto the spreadsheet to start creating your import template.When you are finished, click the Fields button to hide theTable Explorer.
  • 8. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesNow, click the Refresh button in the Dynamics AX ribbonbar to retrieve any data. In this case, there is none.
  • 9. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesNow, just add in all of the new data into Excel.
  • 10. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesNote: Rather than key in all of the language codes, Iplagiarized a little, and cut and paste the information fromthe Forgotten Realms Wiki.
  • 11. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesOnce all of your data is in the Excel spreadsheet, click onthe Publish button on the Dynamics AX ribbon bar, andchoose the Publish All option to update Dynamics AX.
  • 12. © 2013. All rights reserved.Importing HRLanguage CodesIf you check the table within Dynamics AX now, all of thedata (in our case the language codes) will be configuredfor you.
