Marking in Microsoft Dynamics AX, Part 2: More advanced topics
In part 1 of this article, we examined the basics of marking functionality Microsoft Dynamics AX, which dates back to the early releases of the product and remains much the same today.

We conclude with some thoughts on manual marking (and un-marking).
