Adding Variant Codes to Dynamics AX 2009

I read in the book, “Managing your supply chain using Microsoft Dynamics AX”, and it says that the default variant codes are Size and Color, but that you can add more. Does anyone know how this can be accomplished? My company is implementing Dynamics AX 2009 and the unique way that we identify an item usually includes Item-Size-Color-Logo. I am not sure that configuration will fill their needs, so just in case, I was wondering how to add another variant code that code be used for item identification.



Hi Scott,

By default Ax provides 8 inventory dimensions. If you want to add more, please refer to book titled ‘Inside Microsoft Dynamics Ax 4.0’. This could be downloaded for free from

Hope this helps,
