Microsoft Dynamics AX provides many reports that you can use to view details about the projects that you are managing. However, when you want a quick snapshot view of the progress on a project, you can create a project statement by using the Project statements form.
The profit calculations that you can make on the Project statements form is based in part on selections that you make in the Project statements area of the Project management and accounting parameters form. For more information, see About setting up profit calculation.
Open the Project statements form from any of the following forms:
Project contract details
Project report sort fields
Select criteria for the calculation
When you run project statements, you can determine the criteria that are used to calculate the project statement by making selections on the General tab in the Project statements form. Select options in the following areas:
Include project types – Include or exclude specific project types for the cost control calculation. If you open the form from a specific project, by default these options are not available and the calculation uses the project type of the selected project.
Include transaction types – Include or exclude specific transaction types for the cost control calculation. If you open the form from a specific category or category group, by default these options are not available, and the calculation uses the transaction type of the selected category.
Project date/Ledger date – Include transactions in a selected date range based on either the project date or ledger date.
Data – Select whether to calculate and view actual transactions, forecasted transactions, or a comparison of the two.
