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 Gen. Jnl.-Post Line codeunit (12) as follows.
To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Change the code in the ApplyCustLedgEntry function as follows:
    Existing code
    …
        TransferCustLedgEntry(NewCVLedgEntryBuf,NewCustLedgEntry,FALSE);
        CheckUnrealizedCust := TRUE;
        UnrealizedCustLedgEntry := NewCustLedgEntry;
        UnrealizedRemainingAmountCust := NewCustLedgEntry."Remaining Amount" - NewRemainingAmtBeforeAppln;
      END;
    
    
    Replacement code
    …
        TransferCustLedgEntry(NewCVLedgEntryBuf,NewCustLedgEntry,FALSE);
        CheckUnrealizedCust := TRUE;
        UnrealizedCustLedgEntry := NewCustLedgEntry;
        UnrealizedCustLedgEntry.CALCFIELDS(
          "Amount (LCY)","Remaining Amt. (LCY)","Original Amt. (LCY)");
        UnrealizedRemainingAmountCust := NewCustLedgEntry."Remaining Amount" - NewRemainingAmtBeforeAppln;
      END;
    
    
  2. Change the code in the ApplyVendLedgEntry function as follows:
    Existing code
    …
        TransferVendLedgEntry(NewCVLedgEntryBuf,NewVendLedgEntry,FALSE);
        CheckUnrealizedVend := TRUE;
        UnrealizedVendLedgEntry := NewVendLedgEntry;
        UnrealizedRemainingAmountVend := -(NewRemainingAmtBeforeAppln - NewVendLedgEntry."Remaining Amount");
      END;
    
    Replacement code
    …
        TransferVendLedgEntry(NewCVLedgEntryBuf,NewVendLedgEntry,FALSE);
        CheckUnrealizedVend := TRUE;
        UnrealizedVendLedgEntry := NewVendLedgEntry;
        UnrealizedVendLedgEntry.CALCFIELDS(
          "Amount (LCY)","Remaining Amt. (LCY)","Original Amt. (LCY)");
        UnrealizedRemainingAmountVend := -(NewRemainingAmtBeforeAppln - NewVendLedgEntry."Remaining Amount");
        END;
