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 G/L Entry - OnAfterGetRecord trigger in the Export Consolidation report (91). To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Add a new local variable, and then specify the variable as follows:

    • Name: DimensionCode

    • DataType: Code

    • Length: 20

  2. Change the code as follows:
    Existing code

    ...
    IF TempSelectedDim.GET(USERID,3,REPORT::"Export Consolidation",'',LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code") THEN BEGIN

    // Delete the following lines.
    TempDimBufIn.INIT;
    TempDimBufIn."Table ID" := DATABASE::"G/L Entry";
    TempDimBufIn."Entry No." := "Entry No.";
    // End of the lines.

    IF TempDim.GET(LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code") THEN
    IF TempDim."Consolidation Code" <> '' THEN

    // Delete the following lines.
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Code" := TempDim."Consolidation Code"
    ELSE
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Code" := TempDim.Code
    ELSE
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Code" := LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code";
    // End of the lines.

    IF TempDimVal.GET(LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code",LedgEntryDim."Dimension Value Code") THEN
    IF TempDimVal."Consolidation Code" <> '' THEN
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Value Code" := TempDimVal."Consolidation Code"
    ELSE
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Value Code" := TempDimVal.Code
    ELSE
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Value Code" := LedgEntryDim."Dimension Value Code";
    TempDimBufIn.INSERT;
    END;
    UNTIL LedgEntryDim.NEXT = 0;
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    IF TempSelectedDim.GET(USERID,3,REPORT::"Export Consolidation",'',LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code") THEN BEGIN
    IF TempDim.GET(LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code") THEN
    IF TempDim."Consolidation Code" <> '' THEN

    // Add the following lines.
    DimensionCode := TempDim."Consolidation Code"
    ELSE
    DimensionCode := TempDim.Code
    ELSE
    DimensionCode := LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code";
    IF NOT TempDimBufIn.GET(DATABASE::"G/L Entry","Entry No.",DimensionCode) THEN BEGIN
    TempDimBufIn.INIT;
    TempDimBufIn."Table ID" := DATABASE::"G/L Entry";
    TempDimBufIn."Entry No." := "Entry No.";
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Code" := DimensionCode;
    // End of the lines.

    IF TempDimVal.GET(LedgEntryDim."Dimension Code",LedgEntryDim."Dimension Value Code") THEN
    IF TempDimVal."Consolidation Code" <> '' THEN
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Value Code" := TempDimVal."Consolidation Code"
    ELSE
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Value Code" := TempDimVal.Code
    ELSE
    TempDimBufIn."Dimension Value Code" := LedgEntryDim."Dimension Value Code";
    TempDimBufIn.INSERT;
    END;

    // Add the following line.
    END;

    UNTIL LedgEntryDim.NEXT = 0;
    ...
