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


Assume that the "Copy VAT Setup to Jnl. Lines" setting is disabled for the Job G/L Journal batch in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 with Service Pack 1 (SP1). After you post a Job G/L Journal that uses a foreign currency, Microsoft Dynamics NAV populates incorrect values in the following fields in the Job G/L Line table:

  • Job Unit Cost

  • Job Unit Cost (LCY)

  • Job Total Cost

  • Job Total Cost (LCY)

Additionally, the  Unit Cost Unit Cost(LCY), Total Cost, Total Cost(LCY) fields are incorrect in job ledger entries. Microsoft Dynamics NAV unexpectedly populates foreign currency (FCY) values in these fields.
