Step 3: On the Related products form create new records which identifies the related products by selecting the product numbers.

The table below provides the description of the related items fields:

Field Description
Product number The product number of the related product. Notice, that a product in Microsoft Dynamics AX has an item number and product number. To add a related product you should use a product number, but not an item number.
Product name The name of the product.
Relation type The product relationship type which identifies how products relate to each other.
Sort number The ranking of the related products on the product details page from left to right.

When a new relation type is made for the product, it will be shown in the webshop. In the webshop the related products are shown on the product details under the product on the right.
Four related products can be shown at once on the product details page. If more related products should be added, another group of items can be created using the Relation Type field. There is no limitation to the number of groups that can be created.
