been out for a long

Hey Readers, Its been a while i’ve been out of touch with this blog. This doesn’t mean i was not blogging, and time to spill some beans today, that the technology evangelist blog is now shifted from blogger to wordpress. My new blog is “It’s all about tech” (

It has been a great debate for the choice between blogger and wordpress. I’ve also been part of that mystery. As I always say,

“… nothing is god or bad, its only the requirement that makes it useful or useless.”

I did some great brainstorming over the path I will be taking my blogging experience too, and concluded to have a wordpress blog for now. It has not been quite so long, but it truly has been a great experience so far.

It’s all about tech is just what the name suggests. It is truly all about the technology, latest happenings, tips, tricks, how-to’s, everything you want to know about technology and everything I know about technology. It’s all there. If you have what it takes to be a technology evangelist, please do send me a DM on my twitter (, and start blogging on the “tech about” platform. Be a part to spread the word and become a blogger.

Please visit and let me know your valuable comments.

How to debug query and relationship related issues in AX5 forms

These type of issues are mostly related with the query or with the relationships between the child and parent Table or Form records. I would like to add some point here, that may help in troubleshooting these sort of issues

1) Check the form query, you can do it this From Form –> setup –> Query tab
2) Check out the init() method, if it contain the args() setting, is it setting the query here.

Once you are able to figure out that it is the query issue, you can check the following steps:

1) Check out the relations on the table
2) Check out the code in init() and the execute Query() method. Check for the query related code.

Hope this helps.
