Applied on:
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 CU2

Description:
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 provides local and global functionality to meet business geographic requirements for many countries or regions around the world.
Microsoft Dynamics AX is continuously updated as country/region tax and regulatory requirements change.
Country/region-specific features are available to users based on the country associated with the primary address of the legal entity. For instance, if the primary address of the legal entity is in Norway, users will have access to features specific to Norway. But how to access specific features from other legal entity or how to access specific features from secondary legal entity?

The Country/Regional specific features configuration keys have been deprecated in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, country/region context has replaced country/region configuration keys as the method for enabling control over country/region feature availability.

The other menu in Statistics folder is 'SalesOrderEntryStatistics_ItemCust'.
