Moving labels from AX 2012 R2 to RTM via XPO's

If you make an xpo export from AX 2012 R2 with labels, you'll get an error if you select "Show details" during import on AX 2012 RTM.

For this to work, you need to go through the xpo file and remove lines refering to "Partition":

<table:field name="Partition">5637144576</table:field>

Extending Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Cookbook Review

Extending Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Cookbook is a great collection of recipes allowing you get more value from Dynamics AX with already available tools. The easy to follow recipes can save you a lot of time figuring out how to setup and use these tools.

The recipes are based on real business scenarios and rather than just explaining how a single tool works, you get to know how sets of tools can be applied together to address these scenarios. The business scenarios makes it very clear to me that the author has many years of field experience, which just makes it more interesting.

You can buy the book directly from Packt Publishing and Amazon.
