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 following objects:
  • The Sales Line table (37)
  • The Purchase Line table (39)
  • The Sales-Post codeunit (80)
  • The Purch.-Post codeunit (90)

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Change the code in the ZeroAmountLine function in the Sales Line table (37) as follows:
    Existing code
              EXIT(TRUE);
    IF Quantity = 0 THEN
    EXIT(TRUE);

    IF ("Unit Price" = 0) OR ("Line Discount %" = 100) THEN // Delete this line.

    EXIT(TRUE);
    IF QtyType = QtyType::Invoicing THEN
    IF "Qty. to Invoice" = 0 THEN

    Replacement code
              EXIT(TRUE);
    IF Quantity = 0 THEN
    EXIT(TRUE);

    IF ("Unit Price" = 0) THEN // Add this line.

    EXIT(TRUE);
    IF QtyType = QtyType::Invoicing THEN
    IF "Qty. to Invoice" = 0 THEN

  2. Change the code in the ZeroAmountLine function in the Purchase Line table (39) as follows:
    Existing code
              EXIT(TRUE);
    IF Quantity = 0 THEN
    EXIT(TRUE);

    IF ("Direct Unit Cost" = 0) OR ("Line Discount %" = 100) THEN // Delete this line.

    EXIT(TRUE);
    IF QtyType = QtyType::Invoicing THEN
    IF "Qty. to Invoice" = 0 THEN

    Replacement code
    EXIT(TRUE);
    IF Quantity = 0 THEN
    EXIT(TRUE);

    IF ("Direct Unit Cost" = 0) THEN // Add this line.

    EXIT(TRUE);
    IF QtyType = QtyType::Invoicing THEN
    IF "Qty. to Invoice" = 0 THEN

  3. Change the code in the UpdInvPostingBuffer function in the Sales-Post codeunit (80) as follows:
    Existing code
              FALineNo := FALineNo + 1;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."Fixed Asset Line No." := FALineNo;
    END;

    InvPostingBuffer[2] := InvPostingBuffer[1];
    IF InvPostingBuffer[2].FIND THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[2].Amount := InvPostingBuffer[2].Amount + InvPostingBuffer[1].Amount;

    Replacement code
              FALineNo := FALineNo + 1;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."Fixed Asset Line No." := FALineNo;
    END;
    // Add the following lines.
    IF (SalesLine."Line Discount %" = 100) THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount (ACY)" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Amount" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Amount (ACY)" := 0;
    END;
    // The end of the lines.
    InvPostingBuffer[2] := InvPostingBuffer[1];
    IF InvPostingBuffer[2].FIND THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[2].Amount := InvPostingBuffer[2].Amount + InvPostingBuffer[1].Amount;

  4. Change the code in the DivideAmount function in the Sales-Post codeunit (80) as follows:
    Existing code
            IF RoundingLineInserted AND (RoundingLineNo = SalesLine."Line No.") THEN
    EXIT;
    WITH SalesLine DO

    IF (SalesLineQty = 0) OR ("Unit Price" = 0) OR ("Line Discount %" = 100) THEN BEGIN // Delete this line.

    "Line Amount" := 0;
    "Line Discount Amount" := 0;
    "Inv. Discount Amount" := 0;

    Replacement code
            IF RoundingLineInserted AND (RoundingLineNo = SalesLine."Line No.") THEN
    EXIT;
    WITH SalesLine DO

    IF (SalesLineQty = 0) OR ("Unit Price" = 0) THEN BEGIN // Add this line.

    "Line Amount" := 0;
    "Line Discount Amount" := 0;
    "Inv. Discount Amount" := 0;

  5. Change the code in the UpdInvPostingBuffer function in the Purch.-Post codeunit (90) as follows:

              FALineNo := FALineNo + 1;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."Fixed Asset Line No." := FALineNo;
    END;
    InvPostingBuffer[2] := InvPostingBuffer[1];
    IF InvPostingBuffer[2].FIND THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[2].Amount :=

    Replacement code
              FALineNo := FALineNo + 1;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."Fixed Asset Line No." := FALineNo;
    END;
    // Add the following lines.
    IF (PurchLine."Line Discount %" = 100) THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount (ACY)" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Amount" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Amount (ACY)" := 0;
    END;
    // The end of the lines.
    InvPostingBuffer[2] := InvPostingBuffer[1];
    IF InvPostingBuffer[2].FIND THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[2].Amount :=

  6. Change the code in the DivideAmount function in the Purch.-Post codeunit (90) as follows:
    Existing code
            IF RoundingLineInserted AND (RoundingLineNo = PurchLine."Line No.") THEN
    EXIT;
    WITH PurchLine DO

    IF (PurchLineQty = 0) OR ("Direct Unit Cost" = 0) OR ("Line Discount %" = 100) THEN BEGIN // Delete this line.

    "Line Amount" := 0;
    "Line Discount Amount" := 0;
    "Inv. Discount Amount" := 0;

    Replacement code
            IF RoundingLineInserted AND (RoundingLineNo = PurchLine."Line No.") THEN
    EXIT;
    WITH PurchLine DO

    IF (PurchLineQty = 0) OR ("Direct Unit Cost" = 0) THEN BEGIN // Add this line.

    "Line Amount" := 0;

    "Inv. Discount Amount" := 0;

  7. Change the code in the FillInvPostingBuffer function in the Serv-Amounts Mgt. codeunit (5986) as follows:

    TotalVATACY,
    TotalAmount,
    TotalAmountACY);
    UpdInvPostingBuffer(InvPostingBuffer,TempDocDim);
    END;

    Replacement code
                TotalVATACY,
    TotalAmount,
    TotalAmountACY);
    // Add the following lines.
    IF (ServiceLine."Line Discount %" = 100) THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount (ACY)" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Amount" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Amount (ACY)" := 0;

    TotalAmountACY);
    UpdInvPostingBuffer(InvPostingBuffer,TempDocDim);
    END;



    Replacement code
           TotalVATACY,
    TotalAmount,
    TotalAmountACY);
    // Add the following lines.
    IF (ServiceLine."Line Discount %" = 100) THEN BEGIN
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount" := 0;
    InvPostingBuffer[1]."VAT Base Amount (ACY)" := 0;
