Document Generic document could not be created-AX 2012 Excel Addin

yesterday I was trying to import data from excel to ax 2012 through office addins in newly created staging table.

I have followed export procedure successfully but could not import the data in ax staging table and my publishing failed getting following error

I googled this error and most of them suggested build incremental CIL.I also did the incremental CIL which solved my issue.

Compilations errors in Payroll classes-Symmetry

Today We were migrating existing production environment to new production environment hardware.

So I have done fresh instillation of dynamics ax 2012 R CU8 on new machine.I have imported model store and restored Microsoft Dynamics AX(OLTP)database without any error.

when i initiated compilation on machine then got around 22 errors in ax standard classes like variable not declared  or syntax error in payroll classes.

Compiler Output Payroll Classes


“Symmetry.TaxEngine.STEPayrollCalculator ste,steApplicable”

There are many blog written to resolve this symmetry error.Most of them suggested to add file from server and client bin folders in AOT ->References node

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Server\MicrosoftDynamicsAX\bin

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Client\Bin

Variable Symmetry has not been declared Compilation error in Ax 2012

AX2012 R3 CU8 – AOT Compile Errors on Payroll Classes related to Symmetry DLL

but it didn’t work for me and  many more. I identified one more simple solution because i faced similar issue in AX 2009 related to missing of system Base Enum.

I uninstalled  AX client and did installation again and restarted the AX services.when i tried compilation again then there was no syntax error left.
