Dynamics NAV - Message: An item with the same key has already been added.

This error occurs after a separate NAS service has been started.
The service itself runs, but the window error log shows this error, and the NAS does not execute any scheduled tasks.

Google has Vague descriptions about problems with duplicate language codes, or duplicate keys in tables.

It may have to do with sql security after restoring a db to a new sql server that has the same user accounts, but in caps or commons.
Remove all users from the db and re-add them to ensure the security on the db corresponds to the actual users on the machine.

Set SQL to run as the same account the NAV Instance is running under
Ensure the account is a member of db_owner in the company db

Dynamics NAV - Item Attributes vs LS Retail Attributes

  • LS Retail has an Attributes list that can be used to add multiple attributes to an Item, Customer, Vendor
    • These can also be displayed on the POS
    • Can be selected as a Hard Attribute on the Retail Item Card
    • Will be passed on to LS OMNI, and will be visible when requesting items
  • NAV also has an Item Attributes
    • These can be assigned directly to items, or to item categories
    • The values will be displayed in the Item Attribute factbox in the item list

Dynamics NAV - Configuration Templates

These can be used to set default values for Items, Customers, Vendors, Etc.

Item Category now has an Item Template Code field

Item Categories can also have their own attributes using the Item Categories page from Financials

  • Create Config Template that matches your item categories
  • Set all default values that should be populated on the Config Template
  • Assign Config Template to Item Category
  • When Item Category is used, all default values will be applied
  • Item Categories can have parent categories
    • Parent categories are existing categories in the item category table
    • Child categories inherit all attributes from parent categories
    • This allows for a complex hierarchy structure to be setup for Parent categories and regular categories

Dynamics NAV - Image previews do not display after importing image link records

This is because a Media Set ID is calculated in the Tenant Media Set table for each database as whenever a picture file is physically imported.

You must re-import all pictures, or write a codeunit to insert the new media set index values into the Tenant Media Set table of the new db.

SQL - How to setup Replication

  • Prerequisites
    • Windows Server 2012
    • SQL 2016 Standard
    • Machine1 Primary
    • Machine2 Secondary
    • Create a folder on Machine2 called REPL, share it
    • Connect to Machine1>Right click on Replication>Configure Distribution
      • Tick It's own distributor
      • Set network path to snapshot folder
      • leave default distribution database name
      • Finish
      • Under security>select or create the user account being used for the replication service
        • Assign user as db_owner to distribution and company db to replicate
    • Publish a db
      • Expand Replication>Publication>New Publication
        • Transactional - each transaction is sent, only works on tables with primary keys
        • Snapshot - entire db is restored over replica
      • Select all objects to publish
      • Enter your replication account
      • Create Publication
      • Right Click on Publication>Properties>Add Service account to access list

    • Connect to Machine2>Expand Replication>Subscription
      • Create new subscription,point to publisher
      • Choose Pull to allow the subscription machine to do the processing
      • Enter name of destination db to replicate into
      • Enter your replication account
      • Run Continuously
      • Initialize Immediately
      • Assign service account as db_owner on destination db
    • Connect to Machine1
      • Right click publication>Snapshot agent status
      • After the Snapshot has been generated, Click Start

    • If new objects are added to the Source database, the Publication needs to be updated to include the new objects as Articles before it can publish them
    • If your log agent is not starting, use a different account that has full access to all the databases

LS Retail - Data Director - SQL Timeout, Failed to Insert, Failed to Update

  • Causes
    • The DBFileSize is too small, and SQL is taking too long to resize itself.
      • DD gives up and rolls back
      • SQL gives up and doesn't resize
      • Infinite loop of trying and failing
    • Multiple jobs accessing the same table cause table locks
    • Ensure you only have one job per table running at a time
    • If a large job fails, it will send a rollback request to SQL which takes forever to execute
      • This will generally lock up the table and prevent any further transactions for an extremely long time
      • You cannot kill the rollback process
      • If you restart the service, the database goes into recovery mode until it clears the rollback, and will then be available again
    • DO NOT Increase Data File Size in DD Options
      • Controls size of data file generated on local drive
      • Max is around 2gb
    • DO NOT Increase Message Size in DD Options
      • Controls the number of records that can be sent in a single job
      • Max is around 2million records

  • Solution
    • Manually resize the database file size by going to properties>file size> Set it to something larger that will not resize constantly (+20gb)
    • Use the table filters to reduce the records to around 2 million, or 2gb

Dynamics GP - Purchase Receipt does not post correctly, causes PO to think it's received, but there is no stock

Situation: PO has been created, PO receipt is done and posted, but posting fails. The PO line says it's completely received, the receipt transaction is corrupted, and there is no inventory available from the receipt.

Solution:In this case, the PO receipt actually did not post, and we just have to recover the corrupt transaction and delete it.

--Get the Receipt number for the PO
select * from pop10310 where ponumber = 'PO000000000022484'

--Get the Receipt Header
select * from pop10300 where poprctnm = 'GSR00000000068562'

--Update the VENDORID and POPTYPE = 1 if they are blank to allow you to access the transaction in the receiving work screen
--Get the vendor id
select vendorid from pop10100 where ponumber = 'PO000000000022484'

update pop10300 set VENDORID  = 'APAS01', POPTYPE = 1 where POPRCTNM =  'GSR00000000068562'

After running the scripts, pull up the transaction in the purchase receipt screen and delete it.
This should free up the PO and allow you to receive the lines properly.

Dynamics GP - You cannot receive this purchase order line item because it hasn't been encumbered by encumbrance management. Please encumber the purchase in the purchase order entry window.

There is nowhere on the purchase order entry window to physically encumber this.

  • Encumbrance occurs when any one of the following occurs
    • Workflow approves PO line
    • PO approval Approves PO line
    • Mass Encumbrance processes PO line
Problem: The ENC10110.ENCBSTAT is set to 4, and is waiting for Approval or workflow, but neither of these are enabled, so the line can never be encumbered.

Solution:Set the ENC10110.ENCBSTAT to 2 to enable it in the Mass purchasing>transaction>Mass Encumbrance screen to complete the approval before it can be received.

 --Use this to get the dex_row_id's for the lines that cannot be received

select * from enc10110 where ponumber = ' PO00293'

--Use this to update the lines to enable them in the Mass Encumbrance window for processing
--Change the dex_row id's to match the lines that cannot be received
update ENC10110 set ENCBSTAT = 2 where DEX_ROW_ID in (298800,298811)

Sometimes, if you accidentally remove access to SA for a smartview, you can never get back in to see it again.

You can manually update the security tables to give access again

You can also use the SV00108 table to force-lock favorites to prevent anyone from making changes.
  • dynamics.dbo.sv00100 - Favorites index
  • dynamics.dbo.sv00101 - Favorites layout
  • dynamics.dbo.sv00102 - Favorites restrictions

Dynamics GP - Smartlist Builder - Go To Triggers do not fire in the correct order

Sometimes certain scripts run when the window opens, causing unpredictable behaviour with the way the go to triggers will submit data to the open window.

Most times, if you leave the window open and click the go to a second time, the trigger will work as expected since the code that runs on window open has already run.

  • If using a macro, ensure there is one blank line at the end of the macro to ensure the last macro line fires.
  • when using a macro, smartlist builder does not wait for the macro to finish before moving on to the next step, which causes conflicts if the macro is affecting fields that smartlist builder is trying to update.
    • The wait command stops the entire string of commands, and does not wait after each step
    • Either do not use macros, and try to use smartlist builder tasks, or only use macros as the last step

Dynamics GP - Receivings Transaction does not print - Receivings Edit List, POP Receivings Posting Journal

ASSESSMENT: Is the report you are printing modified or default?:

- if it is a modified report, please use the Alternate/Modified Forms and Reports window (Administration | Setup | System | Alternate/Modified Forms and Reports) to temporarily switch to the default report when testing the issue.

If the default report prints fine it tells you there is something incorrect with the modification (possibly the template) that is causing issue and we can troubleshoot in this direction on next contact.

Regarding Templates, please insure that 'Standard' is the selection in the Report Destination screen and you are also printing the Edit List out to the screen in your testing.

- If not modified there is a chance that prior temp/cache information may be interfering with the new printing if it is linked to the User/Report in question in some manner (which will not populate the Process Monitor.

To help insure this is not the case please perform the following before re-testing the issue:
1. Insure ALL USERS are out of Dynamics GP.
2. Log into SQL Server Management Studio on the SQL Server housing Dynamics GP.
3. Make a new backup of the erring company db.
4. Run the following SQL commands against the erring SQL instance:


5. Right-click and stop | start the SQL instance, which will clear the rest of the temp/cache materials in the system from past processing.
6. Log into Dynamics GP as the 'sa' user and retest the issue.

We have attempted these solutions, but the issue persists.

  • We are using the standard print, not the word templates
  • The receiving edit list is not modified
  • The live and TEST companies use the same dictionary, and same report, and it prints In the test company,  but not the live
    • We also tested by using a clean gp client install and clean dictionary with the same issue
  • We ran the script and restarted the server
  • We ran a complete check links and reconcile
  • We logged in and tested the print as sa, but the report does not print
After a few days , the issue went away by itself, and the receivings edit list started printing again.
The only solutions we could think would be
  • Some corrupted transaction was deleted, posted or processed to allow the printing to continue
  • Some nightly process ran which allowed the printing to continue
