Symptoms

Assume that you apply the GDPdU performance update in the German version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. The GDPdU Table Name and GDPdU Field Name fields are only twenty characters long. This can be a problem if you select fields such as the Global Dimension Code 1 field that will be truncated to twenty characters and not exported correctly. This problem occurs in the following products:

  • The German version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2

  • The German version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

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. Change the code in the GDPdU Management codeunit (11000) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    CLEAR(XMLDocOut);
    END;

    // Delete the following lines.
    PROCEDURE FormatForIndexXML@1140009(InputText@1140000 : Text[1024]) : Text[20];
    BEGIN
    InputText := DELCHR(InputText,'=','~!$^&*(){}[]\|;:''"?/,<>@#`.-+=');
    InputText := DELCHR(InputText,'=');
    EXIT(COPYSTR(InputText,1,20));
    // End of the deleted lines.

    END;

    BEGIN
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    CLEAR(XMLDocOut);
    END;

    // Add the following lines.
    PROCEDURE FormatForIndexXML@1140009(InputText@1140000 : Text[1024]) : Text[80];
    BEGIN
    InputText := DELCHR(InputText,'=','~!$^&*(){}[]\|;:''"?/,<>@#`.-+=');
    InputText := DELCHR(InputText,'=');
    EXIT(COPYSTR(InputText,1,80));
    // End of the added lines.

    END;

    BEGIN
    ...
  2. Change the code in Fields in the GDPdU Record Def. Table table (11004) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    CaptionML=ENU=Key No. }{ 41 ; ;Active Key Seq. No. ;Integer }

    // Delete the following line.
    { 50 ; ;GDPdU Table Name ;Text20 }

    }
    KEYS
    {
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    CaptionML=ENU=Key No. }
    { 41 ; ;Active Key Seq. No. ;Integer }

    // Add the following line.
    { 50 ; ;GDPdU Table Name ;Text80 }

    }
    KEYS
    {
    ...
  3. Change the code in Fields in the GDPdU Record Def. Field table (11005) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    END;

    OptionString=[ ,Startdate..Enddate,..Enddate,..Startdate] }

    // Delete the following line.
    { 50 ; ;GDPdU Field Name ;Text20 }

    }
    KEYS
    {
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    END;

    OptionString=[ ,Startdate..Enddate,..Enddate,..Startdate] }

    // Add the following line.
    { 50 ; ;GDPdU Field Name ;Text80 }

    }
    KEYS
    {
    ...
  4. Change the code in Fields in the GDPdU Table Relation table (11006) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    CalcFormula=Lookup(Field."Field Caption" WHERE (TableNo=FIELD(To Table No.),
    No.=FIELD(To Field No.)));
    Editable=No }

    // Delete the following lines.
    { 50 ; ;GDPdU From Field Name;Text20 }
    { 51 ; ;GDPdU To Field Name ;Text20 }
    // End of the deleted lines.

    }
    KEYS
    {
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    CalcFormula=Lookup(Field."Field Caption" WHERE (TableNo=FIELD(To Table No.),
    No.=FIELD(To Field No.)));
    Editable=No }

    // Add the following lines.
    { 50 ; ;GDPdU From Field Name;Text80 }
    { 51 ; ;GDPdU To Field Name ;Text80 }
