SYMPTOMS

Assume that you set the amount rounding precision to 2 in the General Ledger Setup table (98) in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Therefore, a budget amount has a maximum of two decimal places when you enter the budget amount manually. However, when you import a budget from Excel worksheets to Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the extra decimal places of a budget amount are imported.

This problem occurs in the following products:
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0

RESOLUTION

Hotfix information

A supported hotfix is now available from Microsoft. However, it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article.

Code changes

Note Always test code fixes in a controlled environment before you apply the fixes to your production computers.
To install this hotfix, change the code in the Excel Buffer table (370) as follows.
To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Add a new procedure "IsDecimal". To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Add a local parameter as follows:
      • Name: ValueAsText
      • Datatype: Text
      • Length: 250
    2. Add a return value as follows:
      Return Type: Boolean
    3. Add local variables as follows:
      i:  Integer
            c:  Text[1]
            c0:  Text[1]
            ThousandSeparator:  Text[1]
            DecimalSeparator:  Text[1]
            DecimalSeparatorExists:  Boolean
      
    4. Add the code as follows:
      IF ValueAsText = '' THEN
        EXIT(FALSE);
      IF STRPOS(ValueAsText,'..') > 0 THEN
        EXIT(FALSE);
      
      ThousandSeparator := COPYSTR(FORMAT(1000.01,0,0),2,1);
      DecimalSeparator := COPYSTR(FORMAT(1000.01,0,0),6,1);
      
      FOR i := 1 TO STRLEN(ValueAsText) DO BEGIN
        c := COPYSTR(ValueAsText,i,1);
        CASE TRUE OF
          c IN ['+','-']:
            BEGIN
              IF c0 <> '' THEN
                EXIT(FALSE);
            END;
          c = DecimalSeparator:
            BEGIN
              IF NOT DecimalSeparatorExists THEN
                DecimalSeparatorExists := TRUE
              ELSE
                EXIT(FALSE);
            END;
          c = ThousandSeparator:
            BEGIN
              IF NOT (c0 IN ['0','1','2','3','4','5','6','7','8','9']) THEN
                EXIT(FALSE);
            END;
          c IN ['0','1','2','3','4','5','6','7','8','9']:
          ;
          ELSE
            EXIT(FALSE);
        END;
        c0 := c;
      END;
      IF NOT (c IN ['0','1','2','3','4','5','6','7','8','9']) THEN
        EXIT(FALSE);
      EXIT(TRUE);
      
  2. Change the code in the ReadSheet procedure as follows:
    Existing code
    …
      VALIDATE("Row No.",i);
      REPEAT
        VALIDATE("Column No.",j);
        "Cell Value as Text" := DELCHR(FORMAT(XlWrkSht.Range(xlColID + xlRowID).Value),'<',' ');
        IF "Cell Value as Text" <> '' THEN BEGIN
          INSERT;
        END;
        j := j + 1;
      UNTIL j > Maxj;
      i := i + 1;
      Window.UPDATE(1,ROUND(i / Maxi * 10000,1));
    …
    
    Replacement code
    …
      VALIDATE("Row No.",i);
      REPEAT
        VALIDATE("Column No.",j);
        "Cell Value as Text" := DELCHR(FORMAT(XlWrkSht.Range(xlColID + xlRowID).Value),'<',' ');
        IF "Cell Value as Text" <> '' THEN BEGIN
          IF "Cell Value as Text"[1] <> '0' THEN
            IF IsDecimal("Cell Value as Text") THEN
              IF EVALUATE(CellValueDecimal,"Cell Value as Text") THEN
                "Cell Value as Text" := FORMAT(ROUND(CellValueDecimal,0.000001),0,1);
          INSERT;
        END;
        j := j + 1;
      UNTIL j > Maxj;
      i := i + 1;
      Window.UPDATE(1,ROUND(i / Maxi * 10000,1));
    …
