Field values in Project

Hi, new to Dynamics AX and had a question. The projects form, on the general tab, shows a responcibility section. In that, you can identify who the sales or project manager is. My question is this: Our system shows a number for that value and not a name. Is there a way to show the name instead?  I am an end user. If that cant be done, how can I add a column in the grid view to show the name too? I am learning a lot about the system, but need this to be corrected badly, as the users might revolt on me!!! Surprise

Your help is greatly appreciated.


  • Hi Mike,


    You can override the "Look up" method for these fields in the ProjTable Form Data source. 

    For Example :

    public void lookup(FormControl _formControl, str _filterStr)


     SysTableLookup          sysTableLookup;

     Query                   query = new Query();

     QueryBuildDataSource    qdb;

     QueryBuildRange         queryBuildRange;


     qdb = query.addDataSource(tablenum(Tablename));


     sysTableLookup = SysTableLookup::newParameters(tablenum(Tablename), _formControl);

     // Keep on adding whatever fields you want to come in the grid



    // Add a Range if required.

     queryBuildRange         = qdb.addRange(fieldnum(Tablename, Field));
