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

Symptoms

The Order Planning function calculates incorrect "Qty. to Order" suggestions when you use a Make-to-Order environment in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This problem occurs if you use multilevel bill of material (BOM).
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)

Cause

The system uses recursive function which always changes quantity for found item (The BOM creates "tree" where some items can occur one or more times). However, this is an incorrect behavior, because all children for updated item should be either deleted or updated.

Resolution

Hotfix information

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.

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. Create a local function UpdateRelatedComponent in the codeunit (99000809):

    ...
    LOCAL PROCEDURE UpdateRelatedComponent@15(ParentReqLine@1000 : Record 246);
    WITH PlanningComponent DO BEGIN
    SETCURRENTKEY("Worksheet Template Name","Worksheet Batch Name","Worksheet Line No.","Item No.");
    SETRANGE("Worksheet Line No.",ParentReqLine."Line No.");
    SETFILTER("Item No.",'<>%1','');
    SETFILTER("Expected Quantity",'<>0');
    SETFILTER("Planning Level Code",'<>0');
    IF FIND('-') THEN
    REPEAT
    IF LineHasBeenCreated(ChildReqLine,PlanningComponent) THEN BEGIN
    UpdateRelatedComponent(ChildReqLine);
    IF ChildReqLine.Quantity <> "Expected Quantity" THEN BEGIN
    // qty has to be updated, there is a new need of component
    ChildReqLine.BlockDynamicTracking(Blocked);
    ChildReqLine.VALIDATE(Quantity,ChildReqLine.Quantity - "Expected Quantity");
    ChildReqLine.MODIFY;

    // updating qty of component for parent
    VALIDATE("Quantity per","Quantity per");
    MODIFY;
    END ELSE
    // line will be recreated
    ChildReqLine.DELETE(TRUE);
    END;
    UNTIL NEXT = 0;
    END;
    ...


    Add the following parameters in the function:

    • Name: PlanningComponent; DataType: Record (99000829)

    • Name: ChildReqLine; DataType: Record (246)

  2. Create a local function LineHasBeenCreated in the codeunit (99000829):

    ...
    LOCAL PROCEDURE LineHasBeenCreated@18(VAR ChildReqLine@1000 : Record 246;PlanningComponent@1001 : Record 99000829) : Boolean;
    WITH ChildReqLine DO BEGIN
    SETCURRENTKEY("Worksheet Template Name","Journal Batch Name",Type,"No.");
    SETRANGE("Worksheet Template Name",PlanningComponent."Worksheet Template Name");
    SETRANGE("Journal Batch Name",PlanningComponent."Worksheet Batch Name");
    SETRANGE(Type,Type::Item);
    SETRANGE("No.",PlanningComponent."Item No.");
    SETRANGE("Variant Code",PlanningComponent."Variant Code");
    SETRANGE("Ref. Order Type","Ref. Order Type"::"Prod. Order");
    SETRANGE("Ref. Order Status",PlanningComponent."Ref. Order Status");
    SETRANGE("Ref. Order No.",PlanningComponent."Ref. Order No.");
    SETFILTER("Planning Level",'>%1',0);
    EXIT(FINDFIRST);
    END;
    ...
  3. Change the code in the InsertPlanningLine function the codeunit (99000809) as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    IF ReqLine2."Planning Level" < ReqLine."Planning Level" THEN
    ReqLine2."Planning Level" := ReqLine."Planning Level";

    ReqLine2.MODIFY;
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    IF ReqLine2."Planning Level" <ReqLine."Planning Level" THEN
    ReqLine2."Planning Level" := ReqLine."Planning Level";

    // the ReqLine2 can have children which has to be delete or updated
    // Add the following line.
    UpdateRelatedComponent(ReqLine2);

    ReqLine2.MODIFY;
    ...
