"A dimension used in Item Journal Line [line number] has caused an error" error message when you post more than one dimension line in a warehouse reclassification journal in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1

Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1

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

Symptoms


When you post more than one line that has the dimensions specified in a warehouse reclassification journal in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1), you receive an error message that resembles the following:
A dimension used in Item Journal Line line number has caused an error. Select a Dimension Value Code for the Dimension Code AREA for Item item name.

Cause


This problem occurs because the CreateItemJnlLine function uses the line number from one warehouse reclassification journal line, when you create the dimensions for another warehouse reclassification journal line. The line number is not updated until the end of the function. Because the dimensions refer to the old line number, the dimensions cannot be found later.

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 CreateItemJnlLine function in the Whse. Jnl.-Register Batch codeunit (7304) as follows:
