Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012:DateEffective Framework Part 3:Examples of DateEffective records(CreateNewTimePeriod,Correction and Effective Based mode)

Hi,All

This is the part 3 of DateEffective Framework part 2 is here.

So let start first with the CreateNewTimePeriod Mode.As i told you before ,we have a property ‘ValidTimeStateUpdate’ on the datasource of the form(se below) having value ‘CreateNewTimePeriod by default.

UpdateModePropert

CreateNewTimePeriod:

It creates a new record as of current date,means it has ‘ValidFrom’ date as of current date.It expires the updated record by making the ValidTo -1 of the updated record with respect to the valid From of the new record.In this mode user wont have any idea about the existing records.User only sees the current record,but internally history is maintain.

ExistingRecord:

  • Currency:USD
  • Price:99
  • ValidFrom:1/1/2012
  • ValidTo:12/31/2154

So if use update the record,let say Price has been jump to 100,so user will be creating a new record with the updated Price value.On the mid of the year.Let say today is 6/1/2012

New Record:

  • Currency:USD
  • Price:100
  • ValidFrom:6/1/2012(current date)
  • ValidTo:12/31/2154

Existing Record:(Now Expired or closed)

  • Currency:USD
  • Price:99
  • ValidFrom:1/1/2012
  • ValidTo:5/31/2012

Let use Currency form.with the ValidTimeStateUpdate = ‘CreateNewTimePeriod’

CreateNewTime1

Here We have a current record   Effective = 1/1/2012  Expiration = Never

Now I want to update the record and make the Price 100

CreateNewTime2

So look what happen,it creates a new record(i have created a new record).It sets the Expiration value to currentdate-1 and create a new record with current date.

Also note the in ‘CreateNewTimePeriod’ the only record we can update(not readonly) is the current date.here above we have expired/closed record .

CreateNewTimeCanUpdate

This is the current record and we can edit it.Now lets create  a Future record see what happens see below

CreateNewTimeFuture

On creation of future record following things happened.

  • It adjusted the Expiration of the current record with respect to the Effective of Future record
  • It did not give me any MESSAGE BOX for the change.But it did it.
  • Also it makes the future record read only as well.

Correction:Updating the record in correction mode is as same as updating the record in normal terms.In this mode if  ‘ValidFrom’ or ‘ValidTo’ dates are updated the other existing values are automatically adjusted,to maintain the overlap or a gap.

So lets take example of Currency form again, i have set the property to Correction in datasource

CorrectionRecord

I have a record in Correction mode ,now i am going to create an expired/past record

CorrectionNotificaion

I have put the Effective = 1/1/2011 and Expiration = 12/31/2011,Since the Effective of the current record is 1/1/2013 so there is gap.So it prompts for the adjustment notification

i press Yes button see what happens

CorrectionCurrentUpdate

Effective of the current record adjusted with the Expiration of the past record.

Now,I have created the similar record but for future, the records are again adjusted(see below)

CorrectionFut

Now lets delete the record from the middle

Delete

It again shows for the adjustment confirmation.Press Yes then

delete2

Delete record confirmation record .Press yes button

delete4

So here what happens is.Since the middle record is delete ,so the Expiration date of the Past record(see in above screen) is now set the Effective – 1 with respect to the Future record.

So here the attraction of DateEffective framework.User don’t have to worry about the date adjustments,framework will be automatically

Effective Based: It is just the combination of  the two modes i.e ‘CreateNewTimePeriod’ and ‘Correction’.When updating a valid time state table in EffectiveBased mode, if the record being
updated is a current record, the record is updated in CreateNewTimePeriod mode. If  the record being updated is a future record, the record is updated in Correction mode. If the record is a past record, the record cannot be updated.

So now you will have the idea of all three modes,please let me know about queries

Have a nice day!

  2. ValidTimeStateUpdate – Property of datasource , changed with different values, but could not find any difference. Can you explain the difference

    • Thanks, Bhanu
      Were you able to understand the examples that i have given in the blog? For this you need to exiplicty create the data in the tables and do the same steps for all of the Three properties
