Export Form

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The Export form enables you to export selected application objects from the Application Object Tree (AOT) or to export objects from a selected layer. To export all objects from a layer, make sure that the root node is selected when you click Export.

The Export form can be opened from the shortcut menu or from the Command menu, when one or more nodes are selected in the AOT.


You can select more than one object for exporting, but the file name displays only the name of the top selected node. All other nodes selected for export will be included within this node.





Specify a name and location of the export file (.xpo).

Alternatively, select one of the recently used export file names from the File name list.




File name

Specify the path and file name of the export file.

Send as e-mail

Send the exported file as an attachment to an e-mail. Selecting this opens the default e-mail client after the export.

Application object layer

Export objects from a layer other than the current one. Selecting this check box enables the Application object layer list where you must choose a layer.
