The amount in the "Shipped" box in the "Balance" area on the Customer Information tab on the Customer Maintenance (08.260.00) screen is incorrect in Microsoft Dynamics SL

Applies to: Dynamics SL 2011Accounts Receivable

Symptoms


The amount in the Shipped box in the Balance area on the Customer Information tab on the Customer Maintenance (08.260.00) screen is incorrect in Microsoft Dynamics SL. This problem occurs when the customer consolidates invoices but does not accrue revenue.

Cause


The value is updated incorrectly by the Process Manager (40.400.00) screen when the screen updates a shipper for the same customer to a closed status in Order Management.

Workaround


Note Before you follow the instructions in this article, make sure that you have a complete backup copy of the database that you can restore if a problem occurs. To work around this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Verify that the customer does not accrue revenue. Run the following statement against the Microsoft Dynamics SL application database by using SQL Server Management Studio. If the statement returns anything other than NULL, the customer has accrued revenue or does accrue revenue, and you should not use this workaround.
