The execDataImport method is called when the <DataImport> tag is used in the configuration file when Microsoft Dynamics AX is started. For more information, see the SysAutoRun class.

Execution of this method is controlled by the execCommand method of the SysAutoRun class.

The <DataImport> tag has the following attributes:

  • companyId, specifies the company account that data should be imported into.

  • file, specifies the name and path of the file that data should be imported from.

  • includeSystemTables, indicates whether the data import includes system and shared tables. These tables are not included ordinarily. To include them, set the includeSystemTables attribute to true.

  • definitionGroupId, specifies an existing definition group to use when importing data, such as definitionGroupId="STD".
