"RECORDREF variable not initialized" error message when you change the VAT amounts for two consecutive lines in the Purchase Invoice Statistics dialog box in the Spanish version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for the Spanish (es) language locale.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario in the Spanish version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 and of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1):

  • You enable the Allow VAT Difference setting.

  • You enable the Change Log Activated setting for table 39.

  • You change the value-added tax (VAT) amounts for two consecutive lines in the Purchase Invoice Statistics dialog box.

  • You create a purchase invoice that contains more than one line and that uses different VAT product posting groups for each line.

In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

RECORDREF variable not initialized.

Additionally, you cannot exit Microsoft Dynamics NAV. You must kill the process.

Cause

This problem occurs because the Change Log functionality does not work as expected.

Code changes

Note Always test code fixes in a controlled environment before you apply the fixes to your production computers.
To resolve this problem, change the code in the UpdateVATOnLines function in the Purchase Line table (39) as follows:

Existing code

...
LOCKTABLE;
IF FINDSET THEN
REPEAT
IF NOT ZeroAmountLine(QtyType) THEN BEGIN
VATAmountLine.GET("VAT Identifier","VAT Calculation Type","Tax Group Code","Use Tax","Line Amount" >= 0);

// Delete the following lines.
IF VATAmountLine.Modified THEN BEGIN
xRecRef.GETTABLE(PurchLine);
IF NOT TempVATAmountLineRemainder.GET(
"VAT Identifier","VAT Calculation Type","Tax Group Code","Use Tax","Line Amount" >= 0)
THEN BEGIN
TempVATAmountLineRemainder := VATAmountLine;
TempVATAmountLineRemainder.INIT;
TempVATAmountLineRemainder.INSERT;
- END;
// End of the lines.

IF QtyType = QtyType::General THEN
LineAmountToInvoice := "Line Amount"
ELSE
LineAmountToInvoice :=
ROUND("Line Amount" * "Qty. to Invoice" / Quantity,Currency."Amount Rounding Precision");
...

Replacement code

...
LOCKTABLE;
IF FINDSET THEN
REPEAT
IF NOT ZeroAmountLine(QtyType) THEN BEGIN
VATAmountLine.GET("VAT Identifier","VAT Calculation Type","Tax Group Code","Use Tax","Line Amount" >= 0);

// Add the following lines.
xRecRef.GETTABLE(PurchLine);
IF NOT TempVATAmountLineRemainder.GET(
"VAT Identifier","VAT Calculation Type","Tax Group Code","Use Tax","Line Amount" >= 0)
THEN BEGIN
TempVATAmountLineRemainder := VATAmountLine;
TempVATAmountLineRemainder.INIT;
TempVATAmountLineRemainder.INSERT;
END;

IF VATAmountLine.Modified THEN BEGIN
// End of the lines.

IF QtyType = QtyType::General THEN
LineAmountToInvoice := "Line Amount"
ELSE
LineAmountToInvoice :=
ROUND("Line Amount" * "Qty. to Invoice" / Quantity,Currency."Amount Rounding Precision");
...
