BOM edited now cannot cloe any work orders

We edited our BOM’s and now we cannot close any of the work orders we are working on

is this anothe sync database problem

(history- we let go the only guy that knew NAV so were the blind leading the blind )

Hi Deborah,

Are you talk abount Production Order - this should work even after amending a BOM as a copy of the BOM is stored with the Production Order.

Are you getting an error message and if so what is it?

The Sync issue relates to permission problems which doesn’t seem to be the case here.

Have you got a Nav Partner supporting you locally - if not then I would strongly recommend that you find one for you own peace of mind.

Yes but what they did was go in and used “new” and they did not edit the version so it replaced it completely

I think its that the open orders cannot find a copy of the original version of the BOM and thus since we changed product on the BOM it cannot close

We evidently now have a consultant that we can present questions to - so I have to wait

I foundthe follow really good instructions

Change Production BOM lines

If you want to change the Production BOM lines that has been certified, you must first set the Status to ‘Under Development’ because Production BOM with the ‘Certified’ status cannot be changed. After changes have been done, you must set the status back to ‘Certified’ so that the BOM is available for use.

If you change the BOM lines with this method, you will loose the previous BOM lines information. This method work fine if you find that the BOM lines have been set incorrectly and you want to correct it. But in the case where your company want to adjust or change the BOM components, this method is not suitable because you will loose the previous BOM components once the new changes have been saved. Usually, company will want to keep the original BOM components as reference when adjustment or changes are made to the BOM. Rather than create a new BOM for the new formulation, Navision allow you to update the existing BOM with a version. To create a new BOM version:

  1. Open the Production BOM that you want to change.
  2. Click on Prod. BOM → Versions.
  3. Enter a Version No.
  4. Fill in the Description field.
  5. Select a Unit of Measure.
  6. In the Starting Date field, enter a date where the new BOM will take effect. If Production Order is created before the date specified in the Starting Date field, Navision will use the original BOM.
  7. Click Function → BOM Header and the select Yes to copy the Production BOM.
  8. Change the component lines according to your new BOM requirements.
  9. Set the Status to ‘Certified’.
  10. Yes, the new version has been created. Close the Version window to return to the Production BOM Card.

Notice that the Active Version field in the Production BOM card will show the currently active version.

In all of this I did not put the error

when we try to close the order it states the item is not in inventory

we check the item it shows stock and exists

and its an item that was not modified on the BOM

Please check if the item is available on that particular location and it has not been reserved to fulfill some other orders.

“item is not in inventory” issue has been discussed many times on this site, I suggest you to search the site for this and you will definitely get a answer to your query.
