This release contains enhancements to the Management Reporter Web Viewer around opening and refreshing reports along with additional troubleshooting information in the Configuration Console related to data issues in Dynamics AX.

Here’s a summary of the new Management Reporter 2012 CU9 features:

  • View a list of previous month’s reports and open them in the web viewer

  • Enhanced data detection in the Configuration Console
  • Support for dynamically displaying currency symbol, currency code and currency description
  • Support for SQL Server 2014

MR 2012 CU9 Update new feature details and demos:

  •  Refresh a report in Management Reporter web viewer (CU9): There are times when you want to be able to get an updated view of the data in a report without having to go back in Report Designer to regenerate the report. One of the main times this is needed is when folks are making their month end adjustments.  With Management Reporter CU9, there is now the added ability to refresh a report in the web viewer, without having to go back into Reporter Designer. Users that are in the Administrator, Designer or Generator roles will be able to use the refresh option to view an updated, private view of the report. Check out the video below to see it in action: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dynamics_financial_reporting/archive/2014/05/14/refresh-a-report-in-the-management-reporter-web-viewer-cu9-feature.aspx.

 

 

  • Display currency symbol, currency code and currency description (CU9): Users are able to select any reporting currency they wish to view data in from the Web Viewer application bar by clicking the Currency icon. With Management Reporter CU9, users can now dynamically see the currency symbol, code and description they have defined in the Dynamics ERP when the currency is changed. Three new auto text options have been added to Management Reporter Report Designer to enable this functionality:
  • Currency symbol (@CurrencySymbol)
  • Currency code (@CurrencyCode)
  • Currency description (@CurrencyDescription)

You can add the auto text both in the Column Definition and in the Report Definition headers. Additionally, anywhere in a report where a currency symbol is used will update with the appropriate symbol for the currency from Dynamics AX. The places where currency symbols are used are:

  • Display currency symbol on first row which is defined in the Report Definition
  • Use currency format in this row (CS), defined in the Row Definition
  • Format Overrides defined in the Row and Column Definition

  • Viewing previous month’s reports in the web viewer (CU9): When reviewing this month’s report in the web viewer, sometimes it’s helpful to be able to go back and look at the same report for the last month. With Management Reporter CU9, you can do this with a click of a button in the web viewer.  There is no more hunting around trying to find that report for last month. The list of reports is organized by month and includes information about the date it was generated and who generated the report.
