The global address book in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is an entity where party records are stored. The party records are shared and contains information about all organizations and contacts in your Microsoft Dynamics AX environment. Due to large number of parties it might be indivertible to have duplicate parties or parties with similar names. Probably having duplicate records is desired for several reasons.

The Merge feature for global address book records in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will help you joining the duplicates. This book will explain this feature and many related tasks. While reading the book you may discover some useful tips. Some of the tips can also be applied to other parts of the application in a similar way.

In addition a deep dive has been performed to do some troubleshooting on (possible) performance problems and how to solve or prevent them when you use the merge feature.
