Dynamics AX Source
The Dynamics AX Source Component is an SSIS Data Flow Component for consuming data from a Dynamics AX server. The configuration parameters are provided in the standard data flow source component dialog.
In this section we will show you how to set up a Dynamics AX Source component.
- Before you begin, configure a Dynamics AX connection manager. You must have the Dynamics AX .NET Business Connector for the connection manager to work.
- Drag the Data Flow Task from the SSIS Toolbox to the Control Flow canvas.
- Click the Data Flow tab to go to the Data Flow canvas.
- In the SSIS Toolbox, locate the Dynamics AX Source component and drag it onto the Data Flow canvas.
- Double-click on the component on the canvas to open the component dialog.
Congratulations! You have successfully configured the Dynamics AX Source component.

Select one or more Dynamics AX tables from which data will be extracted.
Use SELECT statements to specify the data to be processed from the tables selected with the InputTables parameter above. To indicate which table the data should be extracted from, use %1 for the first table in InputTables, %2 for the second table in InputTables and so on.
The input tables or query are available in the data flow properties list. Follow these steps to set up an expression:
- Right-click on the data flow canvas and select the Properties menu.
- Scroll down and find the property named like [Dynamics AX Source].[InputTables]. This is the property containing the input tables. Every table is separated with a comma and line feed (,\n)
- Scroll down and find the Expressions property. Set up an expression to modify the input tables dynamically.
