Incorrect WIP entries are posted when you run the Post WIP function on a job that uses the Completed Contract WIP method in the North American version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009

Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for the following countries and language locales.
  • English (Canada) (en-ca)
  • English (United States) (en-us)
  • Spanish (Mexico) (es-mx)
  • French (Canada) (fr-ca)

Symptoms


Assume that you create a job that uses the Completed Contract work-in-progress (WIP) method in the North American version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. You run the Post WIP function on the job without running the Calculated WIP function on the job first. In this situation, a duplicate of the WIP entries that are posted for the previous period is posted incorrectly. Therefore, when you run the Balance Sheet report for the previous period, the doubled WIP balance is displayed.
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 DeleteEntriesForJob function in the Job WIP Entry table (1004) as follows:
    PROCEDURE DeleteEntriesForJob@1001(Job@1002 : Record 167);

    SETCURRENTKEY("Job No.");
    SETRANGE("Job No.",Job."No.");
    IF NOT ISEMPTY THEN
    DELETEALL(TRUE);
  2. Change the code in the CalcGLWIP function in the Job Calculate WIP codeunit (1000) as follows:
    Existing code
    ...
    GLEntry.FIND('+');
    JobWIPGLEntry."G/L Entry No." := GLEntry."Entry No.";
    DimMgt.CopyLedgEntryDimToLedgEntryDim(DATABASE::"Job WIP Entry",
    JobWIPEntry."Entry No.",
    DATABASE::"Job WIP G/L Entry",
    JobWIPGLEntry."Entry No.");
    JobWIPGLEntry.INSERT;
    UNTIL JobWIPEntry.NEXT = 0;
    END;
    Replacement code
    ...
    GLEntry.FIND('+');
    JobWIPGLEntry."G/L Entry No." := GLEntry."Entry No.";
    DimMgt.CopyLedgEntryDimToLedgEntryDim(DATABASE::"Job WIP Entry",
    JobWIPEntry."Entry No.",
    DATABASE::"Job WIP G/L Entry",
    JobWIPGLEntry."Entry No.");
    JobWIPGLEntry.INSERT;
    UNTIL JobWIPEntry.NEXT = 0;
    END;

    // Add the following line.
    DeleteWIP(Job);
  3. Add a new DeleteWIP function in the Job Calculate WIP codeunit (1000). To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Add a new local variable in the DeleteWIP function in the Job Calculate WIP codeunit (1000), and then specify the variable as follows:
      • Name: JobTask
      • DataType: Record
      • Subtype: Job Task (1001)
    2. Add a new local variable in the DeleteWIP function in the Job Calculate WIP codeunit (1000), and then specify the variable as follows:
      • Name: JobWIPEntry
      • DataType: Record
      • Subtype: Job WIP Entry (1004)
    3. Add a new local variable in the DeleteWIP function in the Job Calculate WIP codeunit (1000), and then specify the variable as follows:
      • Name: JobLedgerEntry
      • DataType: Record
      • Subtype: Job Ledger Entry (169)
    4. Add the following code in the DeleteWIP function in the Job Calculate WIP codeunit (1000):
      PROCEDURE DeleteWIP@1001(Job@1002 : Record 167);
      VAR
      JobTask@1003 : Record 1001;
      JobWIPEntry@1004 : Record 1004;
      JobLedgerEntry@1005 : Record 169;

      JobTask.SETRANGE("Job No.",Job."No.");
      IF JobTask.FIND('-') THEN
      REPEAT
      JobTask.InitWIPFields;
      UNTIL JobTask.NEXT = 0;

      JobWIPEntry.DeleteEntriesForJob(Job);

      JobLedgerEntry.SETRANGE("Job No.",Job."No.");
      JobLedgerEntry.MODIFYALL("Amt. to Post to G/L",0);
