How do you create subprojects in AX 2009?
Are we talking about in project accounting? If so, then you have to specify a format, e.g. “-####” in the format field below the grid.

In projects. I created one yesterday on the virtual PC (by using the Wizard).
Is the Wizard the only way to create the subprojects?
I noticed on the virtual PC when I did create one, it did the following:
Example Format for Project is CR##### (so lets say project is CR0123)
I used -## for the subproject format. (so lets say project is CR0123-01
But when I created (using Wizard) it is creating
Like as though there are activities assigned with the project type. How is this done?
Between the upper pane and the lower pane we have a button to create a Go to Sub- Project and beside to that we have to specify “#” in the format box .
The creation of Sub projects is totally or partially based on the Number sequence length. by default we have a string size limit upto 10 characters (whish includes special, numeric and alph a characters) so increase the space of Numbers(String Size) we have do it using the below path
AOT \Data Dictionary\Extended Data Types\ProjIdBase
This will help you in extending the String Size and create a Sub- Project.
This is a manual way and the second option is is creating using Wizard
Hope this would solve your understanding on Sub projects…
