This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for all countries and all language locales.
Consider the following scenario in Microsoft Dynamics NAV: you enter a general account number that has more than 20 characters, for example, the general account number is 5710|5720|5730|5740|5750, in the Account Totaling field in the "Tax Statement Line" table (256). Then, you leave the Account Totaling field to insert the general account number into the "Tax Statement Line" table. In this scenario, when you enter the Account Totaling field again and then click the lookup button or press F6, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
A value in the filter ''5710|5720|5730|5740|5750'' in the No. field in the G/L Account table is too long for the field type.
Note The 5710|5720|5730|5740|5750 represents a placeholder for a general account number.
This problem occurs in the following products:
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 Service Pack 1
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1
A supported hotfix is now available from Microsoft. However, it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article. Apply it only to systems that are experiencing this specific problem. This hotfix may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 service pack or the next Microsoft Dynamics NAV version that contains this hotfix.
Note In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support calls may be canceled if a Technical Support Professional for Microsoft Dynamics and related products determines that a specific update will resolve your problem. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for the specific update in question.

Note Before you install this hotfix, verify that all Microsoft Navision client users are logged off the system. This includes Microsoft Navision Application Services (NAS) client users. You should be the only client user who is logged on when you implement this hotfix.
To implement this hotfix, you must have a developer license.
We recommend that the user account in the Windows Logins window or in the Database Logins window be assigned the "SUPER" role ID. If the user account cannot be assigned the "SUPER" role ID, you must verify that the user account has the following permissions:
The Modify permission for the object that you will be changing.
The Execute permission for the System Object ID 5210 object and for the System Object ID 9015 object.
Note You do not have to have rights to the data stores unless you have to perform data repair.
Note Always test code fixes in a controlled environment before you apply the fixes to your production computers.
To apply this hotfix, follow these steps:
In the "Account Totaling" control in the "VAT Statement" form (317), add the OnLookup trigger .
For the OnLookup trigger, add the following local variable.
GLaccList@1000 : Form 18;
In the OnLookup trigger, add the following code.
IF NOT (GLaccList.RUNMODAL = ACTION::LookupOK) THEN
Text := GLaccList.GetSelectionFilter;
No prerequisites are required.
You do not have to restart the computer after you apply this codefix.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
The length of the Account Totaling field in the "VAT Statement Line" table (256) is 30 characters and the Account Totaling field has a table relation to the No. field whose length is 20 characters in the "G/L Account" table (15). However, the value of the ValidateTableRelation property of the Account Totaling field is No. Therefore, you can enter 30 characters in the Account Totaling field.
