"The transaction cannot be completed because it will cause inconsistencies in the G/L Entry table" error message when you post a sales invoice, a purchase invoice or a service invoice that uses 100 percentage line discount in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009

This article applies to Microsoft Microsoft Dynamics for all countries and all language locales.

Symptoms

Assume that you create a sales invoice, a purchase invoice or a service invoice that has a 100 percentage line discount in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. When you post the invoice, you receive the following error message:

The transaction cannot be completed because it will cause inconsistencies in the G/L Entry table.
Check where and how the CONSISTENT function is used in the transaction to find the reason for the error.
Contact your system administrator.
Tables can be marked as inconsistent during comprehensive tasks, such as posting. This prevents data from being updated incorrectly.


This problem occurs in the following products:

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009

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. Change the code in the DivideAmount function in the Sales-Post codeunit (80) as follows:
    Existing code 1


    ("Line Amount" - "Inv. Discount Amount") /
    (TempVATAmountLine."Line Amount" - TempVATAmountLine."Invoice Discount Amount");
    END;
    "Amount Including VAT" :=
    ROUND(TempVATAmountLineRemainder."Amount Including VAT",Currency."Amount Rounding Precision");
    Amount :=
    ROUND("Amount Including VAT",Currency."Amount Rounding Precision") -

    Replacement code 1


    ("Line Amount" - "Inv. Discount Amount") /
    (TempVATAmountLine."Line Amount" - TempVATAmountLine."Invoice Discount Amount");
    END;
    IF "Line Discount %" <> 100 THEN
    "Amount Including VAT" :=
    ROUND(TempVATAmountLineRemainder."Amount Including VAT",Currency."Amount Rounding Precision")
    ELSE
    "Amount Including VAT" := 0;
    Amount :=
    ROUND("Amount Including VAT",Currency."Amount Rounding Precision") -

    Existing code 2


    END ELSE BEGIN
    IF "VAT Calculation Type" = "VAT Calculation Type"::"Full VAT" THEN BEGIN
    "Amount Including VAT" := "Line Amount" - "Inv. Discount Amount";
    Amount := 0;

    END ELSE BEGIN

    Replacement code 2


    END ELSE BEGIN

    TempVATAmountLineRemainder."VAT Amount" - "Amount Including VAT" + Amount;
    END;

    Replacement code 3


    ("Line Amount" - "Inv. Discount Amount") /
