If an AX table field directly uses the Extended Data Type (EDT) AmountCur or an EDT that derives from AmountCur, the field’s property sheet shows several additional entries, when compared to other fields of type real.
I couldn’t find any documentation on this in the Internet or the AX2012 development book, so I thought I’d try and find out from AX where these properties are used and what they are used for.
