List pages can help reduce the time that it takes to complete some daily tasks in Microsoft Dynamics AX. You can use list pages to view a list of similar records, select a record, and then perform actions against that record. There are two types of list pages: primary and secondary. Primary list pages display a set of records, and secondary list pages display a subset of those records. You must have security access to a primary list page to view the secondary list pages that are based on it.

When the Specific Register is opened from the common (menu) or the area page, it will open the form as a primary list page. From this view you can select a specific record and click on EDIT to open the detail or grid view to perform actions against the selected record. List pages display multiple records as a list, or a series of rows and columns. You can sort the data in the list and use filters to display subsets of the list items. You can also click links to display specific records, if records are available.

Select multiple rows in a list by using check boxes to filter the on specific records. Filter the information in a list by using a quick filter or an advanced filter. Save an advanced filter as a Cue on a Role Centre page.
