  • Spanish (Mexico) (es-mx)

  • French (Canada) (fr-ca)

Symptoms

Assume that you assign a general ledger account to the acquisition cost account in the North American version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. The general ledger account has the General Posting Type field set to blank and the general ledger account does not have the Gen. Product Posting Group value populated in the G/L Account Card dialog box. In this situation, when you try to add a purchase invoice line to buy a fixed asset, you receive the following error message:

Gen. Product Posting Group must have a Value in G/L Account No. = general ledger account number. It cannot be zero or empty.

However, the Gen. Product Posting Group value should not be required when the VAT in Use option is disabled.
This problem occurs in the following products:

  • The North American version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2

  • The North American 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. Add a new local variable in the GetFAPostingGroup function in the Sales Line table (37), and then specify the variable as follows:

    • Name: GLSetup@1004

    • DataType: Record

    • Subtype: General Ledger Setup (98)

  2. Change the code in the GetFAPostingGroup function in the Sales Line table (37) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    FAPostingGr.GET(FADeprBook."FA Posting Group");
    FAPostingGr.TESTFIELD("Acq. Cost Acc. on Disposal");
    LocalGLAcc.GET(FAPostingGr."Acq. Cost Acc. on Disposal");
    LocalGLAcc.CheckGLAcc;

    // Delete the following line.
    LocalGLAcc.TESTFIELD("Gen. Prod. Posting Group");

    "Posting Group" := FADeprBook."FA Posting Group";
    "Gen. Prod. Posting Group" := LocalGLAcc."Gen. Prod. Posting Group";
    "Tax Group Code" := LocalGLAcc."Tax Group Code";
    VALIDATE("VAT Prod. Posting Group",LocalGLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    FAPostingGr.GET(FADeprBook."FA Posting Group");
    FAPostingGr.TESTFIELD("Acq. Cost Acc. on Disposal");
    LocalGLAcc.GET(FAPostingGr."Acq. Cost Acc. on Disposal");
    LocalGLAcc.CheckGLAcc;

    // Add the following lines.
    GLSetup.GET;
    IF GLSetup."VAT in Use" THEN
    LocalGLAcc.TESTFIELD("Gen. Prod. Posting Group");
    // End of the lines.

    "Posting Group" := FADeprBook."FA Posting Group";
    "Gen. Prod. Posting Group" := LocalGLAcc."Gen. Prod. Posting Group";
    "Tax Group Code" := LocalGLAcc."Tax Group Code";
    VALIDATE("VAT Prod. Posting Group",LocalGLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    ...
  3. Add a new local variable in the GetFAPostingGroup function in the Purchase Line table (39), and then specify the variable as follows:

    • Name: GLSetup@1002

    • DataType: Record

    • Subtype: General Ledger Setup (98)

  4. Change the code in the GetFAPostingGroup function in the Purchase Line table (39) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    END ELSE BEGIN
    FAPostingGr.TESTFIELD("Maintenance Expense Account");
    LocalGLAcc.GET(FAPostingGr."Maintenance Expense Account");
    END;
    LocalGLAcc.CheckGLAcc;

    // Delete the following line.
    LocalGLAcc.TESTFIELD("Gen. Prod. Posting Group");

    "Posting Group" := FADeprBook."FA Posting Group";
    "Gen. Prod. Posting Group" := LocalGLAcc."Gen. Prod. Posting Group";
    "Tax Group Code" := LocalGLAcc."Tax Group Code";
    VALIDATE("VAT Prod. Posting Group",LocalGLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    END ELSE BEGIN
    FAPostingGr.TESTFIELD("Maintenance Expense Account");
    LocalGLAcc.GET(FAPostingGr."Maintenance Expense Account");
    END;
    LocalGLAcc.CheckGLAcc;

    // Add the following lines.
    GLSetup.GET;
    IF GLSetup."VAT in Use" THEN
    LocalGLAcc.TESTFIELD("Gen. Prod. Posting Group");
    // End of the lines.

    "Posting Group" := FADeprBook."FA Posting Group";
    "Gen. Prod. Posting Group" := LocalGLAcc."Gen. Prod. Posting Group";
    "Tax Group Code" := LocalGLAcc."Tax Group Code";
    VALIDATE("VAT Prod. Posting Group",LocalGLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    ...
  5. Change the code in the OnRun trigger in the Sales-Post codeunit (80) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    ((SalesLine."Qty. to Invoice" <> 0) OR (SalesLine."Qty. to Ship" <> 0))
    THEN

    // Delete the following line.
    IF SalesLine.Type = SalesLine.Type::"G/L Account" THEN

    IF (((SalesSetup."Discount Posting" = SalesSetup."Discount Posting"::"Invoice Discounts") AND
    (SalesLine."Inv. Discount Amount" <> 0)) OR
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    ((SalesLine."Qty. to Invoice" <> 0) OR (SalesLine."Qty. to Ship" <> 0))
    THEN

    // Add the following line.
    IF (SalesLine.Type IN [SalesLine.Type::"G/L Account",SalesLine.Type::"Fixed Asset"]) THEN

    IF (((SalesSetup."Discount Posting" = SalesSetup."Discount Posting"::"Invoice Discounts") AND
    (SalesLine."Inv. Discount Amount" <> 0)) OR
    ...
  6. Change the code in the OnRun trigger in the Purch.-Post codeunit (90) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    THEN

    // Delete the following line.
    IF PurchLine.Type = PurchLine.Type::"G/L Account" THEN

    IF (((PurchSetup."Discount Posting" = PurchSetup."Discount Posting"::"Invoice Discounts") AND
    (PurchLine."Inv. Discount Amount" <> 0)) OR
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    THEN

    // Add the following line.
    IF (PurchLine.Type IN [PurchLine.Type::"G/L Account",PurchLine.Type::"Fixed Asset"]) THEN

    IF (((PurchSetup."Discount Posting" = PurchSetup."Discount Posting"::"Invoice Discounts") AND
