The Capable-to-Promise function calculates an earliest shipment on a weekend for a working week unexpectedly if the Outbound Whse. Handling Time is added in Microsoft Dynamics NAV

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for all language locales.



Consider the following scenario in Microsoft Dynamics NAV:

  • You have a sales order that uses the Order Promising function (Capable-to-Promise).

  • The customer has a Working Week Calendar Setup (Monday to Friday).

  • A "Outbound Whse. Handling Time" setup is specified on the location card.

In this Scenario, the Capable-to-Promise function is used to calculate an earliest shipment date because of the shipment date of the "Outbound Whse. Handling time" setup is suggested on a weekend. This is incorrect because the Calendar Setup is not considered.
This problem occurs in the following products:

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1(SP1)

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 Service Pack 1(SP1)

A supported hotfix is now available from Microsoft. However, it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article. Apply it only to systems that are experiencing this specific problem. This hotfix may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 service pack or the next Microsoft Dynamics NAV version that contains this hotfix.

Note In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support calls may be canceled if a Technical Support Professional for Microsoft Dynamics and related products determines that a specific update will resolve your problem. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for the specific update in question.

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Change the code in the ValidateCapableToPromise function in the codeunit (99000886) as follows:
    Add the following parameter in the function:

    • VAR: Yes

    • Name: DueDateOfReqLine

    • DataType: Date


    Add the following local variable:

    • Name: Ok

    • DataType: Boolean

    Existing code

    ...
    END;
    // Delete the following line.
    EXIT(CheckDerivedDemandCTP(ReqLine,PeriodType));
    // End of the deleted line.
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    END;
    // Add the following lines.
    Ok := CheckDerivedDemandCTP(ReqLine,PeriodType);
    IF Ok THEN
    DueDateOfReqLine := ReqLine."Due Date";
    EXIT(Ok);
    // End of the added lines.
    ...
  2. Change the code in the CalcCapableToPromise function in the codeunit (99000886) as follows:
    Add the following local variable:

    • Name: DueDateOfReqLine

    • DataType: Date

    Existing code 1

    ...
    IF NOT
    ValidateCapableToPromise(
    ItemNo,VariantCode,LocationCode,CalculationStartDate,
    // Delete the following line.
    NeededQty,UnitOfMeasure,"Order Promising ID",PeriodType)
    // End of the deleted line.
    ...

    Replacement code 1

    ...
    IF NOT
    ValidateCapableToPromise(
    ItemNo,VariantCode,LocationCode,CalculationStartDate,

    // Add the following line.
    NeededQty,UnitOfMeasure,"Order Promising ID",PeriodType,DueDateOfReqLine)
    ...

    Existing code 2

    ...
    RemoveReqLines("Order Promising ID","Source Line No.",OrderPromisingLineToSave,FALSE);

    // Delete the following lines.
    IsValid := ValidateCapableToPromise(ItemNo,VariantCode,LocationCode,CalculationStartDate,
    NeededQty,UnitOfMeasure,"Order Promising ID",PeriodType);
    // End of the deleted lines.
    ...

    Replacement code 2

    ...
    RemoveReqLines("Order Promising ID","Source Line No.",OrderPromisingLineToSave,FALSE);

    // Add the following lines.
    IsValid :=
    ValidateCapableToPromise(ItemNo,VariantCode,LocationCode,CalculationStartDate,
    NeededQty,UnitOfMeasure,"Order Promising ID",PeriodType,DueDateOfReqLine);
    ...

    Existing code 3

    ...
    ValidateCapableToPromise(ItemNo,VariantCode,LocationCode,CapableToPromiseDate,

    // Delete the following line.
    NeededQty,UnitOfMeasure,"Order Promising ID",PeriodType);
    // End of the deleted line.

    END;
    CalculationDialog.CLOSE;
    ...

    Replacement code 3

    ...
    ValidateCapableToPromise(ItemNo,VariantCode,LocationCode,CapableToPromiseDate,

    // Add the following line.
    NeededQty,UnitOfMeasure,"Order Promising ID",PeriodType,DueDateOfReqLine);
    // End of the added line.

    END;
    CalculationDialog.CLOSE;
    ...

    Existing code 4

    ...
    CapableToPromiseDate := CalculationStartDate;
    LastValidLine := GetNextOrderPromisingLineNo;
    ...

    Replacement code 4

    ...
    CapableToPromiseDate := CalculationStartDate

    // Add the following lines.
    IF CapableToPromiseDate <> DueDateOfReqLine THEN
    CapableToPromiseDate := DueDateOfReqLine;
    // End of the added lines.

    LastValidLine := GetNextOrderPromisingLineNo;
    ...
  3. Change the code in the CheckCompsCapableToPromise function in the codeunit (99000886) as follows:
    Add the following local variable:

    • Name: DueDateOfReqLine

    • DataType: Date

    Existing code

    ...
    ValidateCapableToPromise(
    "Item No.","Variant Code","Location Code","Due Date",

    // Delete the following line.
    "Expected Quantity","Unit of Measure Code",OrderPromisingID,PeriodType)
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    ValidateCapableToPromise(
    "Item No.","Variant Code","Location Code","Due Date",

    // Add the following line.
    "Expected Quantity","Unit of Measure Code",OrderPromisingID,PeriodType,DueDateOfReqLine)
    ...
  4. Change the code in the CheckTransferShptCTP function in the codeunit (99000886) as follows:
    Add the following local variable:

    • Name: DueDateOfReqLine

    • DataType: Date

    Existing code

    ...
    ValidateCapableToPromise(
    "No.","Variant Code","Transfer-from Code","Transfer Shipment Date",

    // Delete the following line.
    Quantity,"Unit of Measure Code",OrderPromisingID,PeriodType)
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    ValidateCapableToPromise(
    "No.","Variant Code","Transfer-from Code","Transfer Shipment Date",

    // Add the following line.
    Quantity,"Unit of Measure Code",OrderPromisingID,PeriodType,DueDateOfReqLine)
    ...
