Data upgrade scripts are executed as part of the data upgrade process to upgrade data from a source Microsoft Dynamics AX database to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. The documentation contains script information organized by class and method name. You might find the following cross-reference topics useful when upgrading your data:

    • Affected tables, listed by table
    • Affected tables, listed by script
    • Affected modules, listed by module
    • Affected modules, listed by script

    Most of the data upgrade scripts apply to all Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 installations. To find the scripts specific to an affected layer, use the search tab and search for the layer. For example, GLS Cons for the consolidated Brazil, China, Japan, Thailand, and India, or GLS EE for Eastern Europe.
