The Variant parameters are not used when you use the setrange command in C/FRONT in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0

Symptoms

When you use the setrange command in C/FRONT in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0, the Variant parameters are not used as expected.

For example, the following C/FRONT command works correctly in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.0 and in earlier versions.
Dim Data2 As Variant  
Data2 = TRUE
Call CF.SetRange(CT, 5727, Data2, Data2)
However, in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0, the command uses a filter of FALSE for the Data2 variant. Therefore, the result that is returned is exactly the opposite of what you expect from the C/FRONT command.
