Symptoms

When you try to certify a production Bill of Material (BOM) in Microsoft Business Solutions - Navision, you may receive the following error message:
Routing Line with Routing Link Code Number cannot be found. Check Production BOM No. Production BOM Number Line No. Line Number.
Notes
  • Number is a placeholder for the numeric value that is missing from the Routing Link Code box in the Routing window.
  • Production BOM Number is a placeholder for the number of the production BOM that you created.
  • Line Number is a placeholder for the number of the production BOM line.
This problem may occur if the following conditions are true:
  • The finished item has a routing number assigned.
  • The corresponding production Bill of Materials (BOM) has defined routing link codes.

Cause

This problem may occur when the values of the routing link codes for the production BOM differ from the values of the routing link codes that are on a routing.

Workaround

To work around this problem, change the values of the routing link codes on a routing so that the values match the values that are used in the routing link codes for the production BOM. Alternatively, you can change the values of the routing link codes for the production BOM so that they match the values of the routing link codes on a routing.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
