New Number Sequence for new AX Module

Sometimes back I had posted about creating new Numbersequences for existing AX Modules. However say someone wants to create a new module in AX and wants the same setup /Parameters form in the new module just like AX base modules. Say you want to create a new module called Pre Purchase, and for simplicity, we will create just 1 new Number sequence. Here’s what to do:-

1. Edit the baseEnum NumberSeqModule, adding a reference for your new module (Pre Purchase)

2. Create a new EDT say PurchaseRequisitionId which will be used in the module

3. Create new class NumberSeqReference_PrePurchase that extends NumberSeqReference

The 3 methods in that class are:

public class NumberSeqReference_PrePurchase extends NumberSeqReference



protected void loadModule()

NumberSequenceReference numRef;


/* Setup PurchaseRequisitionId */

numRef.dataTypeId = typeid2extendedtypeid(typeid(PwC_PurchaseRequisitionId));
numRef.referenceHelp = literalStr("Unique key for Purchase Requisition identification. The key is used when creating new Purchase Requisitions."); // Use Labels here
numRef.wizardContinuous = true;
numRef.wizardManual = NoYes::No;
numRef.wizardAllowChangeDown = NoYes::No;
numRef.wizardAllowChangeUp = NoYes::No;
numRef.sortField = 1;

static NumberSeqModule numberSeqModule()

return NumberSeqModule::PrePurchase;

4. Modify the NumberSeqReference Class for the following methods


Add the following code

// PrePurchase Begin

moduleList += NumberSeqReference_PrePurchase::numberSeqModule();

// PrePurchase End


   Add the following code   

// Pre Purchase addition begin

case (NumberSeqReference_PrePurchase::numberSeqModule()): return new NumberSeqReference_PrePurchase(_module);

// Pre Purchase addition end

 5.       Look at existing Parameters Forms in AX


6. The final Output

Happy DAX-ing
