Sales Header number series omitted

At random the mandatory number series - No. Series Posting No. Series Shipping No. Series are omitted from the Sales Header table. The result is a Sales Order that cannot be posted.

We have installed a lot of Navision 2.01b->2.6 with Adv. Distribution and I dont recall seeing the issues you mention. Are you sure there is nothing modified? Craig Bradney Technical Manager Navision Solutions & Services, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu

We have not modified anything in this area. Unofficially we have been told that Navision Australia know about the problem but cannot isolate it. Leads to the conclusion that what ever Navision have done for Australia (like local GST requirements) is the source of the problem.

We havent had support calls relating to this and our customers would have posted thousands of documents since the GST code was put in their database. Anymore information regarding this unofficial problem? email me instead of posting please. Craig Bradney Technical Manager Navision Solutions & Services, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu

Peter Until your problem is resolved ask your NSC to write a report to update the missing “No series”, at least then you will be able to post the Sales Orders. When you Insert a Sales Header of type Order it calls a function on the table which is called InitRecord. This sets the Shipping and posting “No. Series” Also the “Order Date” and “Shipment Date” to the workdate, were these date fields populated correcly when you Inserted the Sales Orders on the records that did not carry across the “No. Series”? Also ask them to check that the InitRecord is outside of the Begin - End Statement.

I have also seen alot of this especially in the startup. In installations without NAD, the problems origin has then been when someone is changing or maintainting the settings for the No Series… If your No. Series in the S&R Setup for Posted Invoce Nos. and Posted Shipment Nos. not is set as Default they will not be set to the “Posting No Serie” and “Shipping No Serie” in the Sales Header. If your Order Nos allows manual numbers to be entered, the field No. Serie in the Sales Header will be blank if the user enters the number manually. So even in the standard application it is possible to get this by just “ticking” the settings for the No Series.
