Asterisks ******* are sent over from Project Transaction Transfer to GLTran for required fields (acct/sub/project/tasks) for 0.00 amounts


Consider the following scenario in Project Controller in Microsoft Dynamics SL:

  • Open Project Transaction Transfer (PA.PTT.00)
  • Select a project that has Labor posted to it from Time and Expense so that it will produce a General Ledger batch
  • Select the transaction on Selected for Bulk Edit field
  • Click Split Transaction
  • Select a new Project/Task and half the units
  • On the next line select a Project task and the remaining units
  • Click Ok
  • You can see the **** in the screen on Project Transaction Transfer (PA.PTT.00)
  • Release the transaction
  • In the Journal Transaction (01.010.00) screen there's a 0.00 transaction with **** in required fields
