This problem occurs in the following products:
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 Service Pack 1
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0

Cause


This problem occurs because the Applies-to ID field is not cleared for vendor ledger entries when you stop running the Suggest Vendor Payments report.

Code changes

Note Always test code fixes in a controlled environment before you apply the fixes to your production computers.
To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Add the HideValidationDialog global variable as the Boolean type in the Gen. Journal Line table (81).
  2. Change the code in the Account No. - OnValidate trigger in the Gen. Journal Line table (81) as follows:
    Existing code
    ...
    "VAT Bus. Posting Group" := '';
    "VAT Prod. Posting Group" := '';
    IF (Vend."Pay-to Vendor No." <> '') AND (Vend."Pay-to Vendor No." <> "Account No.") THEN BEGIN
    OK := CONFIRM(Text014,FALSE,Vend.TABLECAPTION,Vend."No.",Vend.FIELDCAPTION("Pay-to Vendor No."),
    Vend."Pay-to Vendor No.");
    IF NOT OK THEN
    ERROR('');
    END;
    VALIDATE("Payment Terms Code");
    END;
    "Account Type"::"Bank Account":
    ...
    Replacement code
    ...
    "VAT Bus. Posting Group" := '';
    "VAT Prod. Posting Group" := '';
    IF (Vend."Pay-to Vendor No." <> '') AND (Vend."Pay-to Vendor No." <> "Account No.") AND
    NOT HideValidationDialog
    THEN BEGIN
    OK := CONFIRM(Text014,FALSE,Vend.TABLECAPTION,Vend."No.",Vend.FIELDCAPTION("Pay-to Vendor No."),
    Vend."Pay-to Vendor No.");
    IF NOT OK THEN
    ERROR('');
    END;
    VALIDATE("Payment Terms Code");
    END;
    "Account Type"::"Bank Account":
    ...
  3. Add the SetHideValidation procedure in the Gen. Journal Line table (81). To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Add the NewHideValidationDialog local variable as the Boolean type.
    2. Add the code in the SetHideValidation procedure as follows:
      HideValidationDialog := NewHideValidationDialog;
  4. Add a text constant in the Suggest Vendor Payments report (393), and then specify the text constant as follows:
    • Name: Text025
    • ConstValue: 'ENU="The %1 %2 has a %3 %4. "
  5. Add a local variable in the MakeGenJnlLines function in the Suggest Vendor Payments report (393), and the specify the variable as follows:
    • Name:Vendor
    • DataType:Record
    • Length:23
  6. Change the code in the MakeGenJnlLines function in the Suggest Vendor Payments report (393) as follows:
    Existing code
    ...
    OldTempPaymentBuffer."Document No." := "Document No.";
    END;
    END;
    "Account Type" := "Account Type"::Vendor;
    VALIDATE("Account No.",TempPaymentBuffer."Vendor No.");
    "Bal. Account Type" := BalAccType;
    VALIDATE("Bal. Account No.",BalAccNo);
    VALIDATE("Currency Code",TempPaymentBuffer."Currency Code");
    ...
    Replacement code
    ...
    OldTempPaymentBuffer."Document No." := "Document No.";
    END;
    END;
    "Account Type" := "Account Type"::Vendor;
    SetHideValidation(TRUE);
    VALIDATE("Account No.",TempPaymentBuffer."Vendor No.");
    Vendor.GET(TempPaymentBuffer."Vendor No.");
    IF (Vendor."Pay-to Vendor No." <> '') AND (Vendor."Pay-to Vendor No." <> "Account No.") THEN
    MESSAGE(Text025,Vendor.TABLECAPTION,Vendor."No.",Vendor.FIELDCAPTION("Pay-to Vendor No."),
    Vendor."Pay-to Vendor No.");
    "Bal. Account Type" := BalAccType;
    VALIDATE("Bal. Account No.",BalAccNo);
    VALIDATE("Currency Code",TempPaymentBuffer."Currency Code");
    ...
