Chapter 7. Integrating Data

As you learned in the previous chapter, the need for data manipulation of a huge chunk of data is more easily achieved by running a periodic Job rather than user data entry. So the data that is being inserted or updated must come from somewhere, right? Let's say you have a semicolon separated file, or maybe even an XML file that contains data that you would like to read into AX. Or, perhaps you need to generate a file in AX, so that it can be read by another system?

In this chapter, you will learn how to:

  • Read/write data from/to a character separated file
  • Read/write data from/to a binary file
  • Read/write data from/to an XML file
  • Read/write data from/to a database using ODBC
  • Use DictTable and DictField to create generic code ...
