Is this Navision bug?

Hi...

An in-transit location can not be selected in Sales Order. If this is correct, try this out...

Create one Sales Order. Enter one location in lines. Now, go to this location card from Sales Order and mark the location as in-transit. The location is not deleted from Sales Order nor the system gives any error. Moreover, the system allows to ship this order.

Is this Navision bug?

    I guess in Codeunit 80 you can do a test field on sales lines. for location. 2 lines of code.

    Well you can be correct in that but let me tell you that the setup and master data are not to be messed with. Looking for loopholes is very easy and you will find a lot of them but the issue is :
    are you going to define a intransit code to a location after you are live :?:
    I guess not. Setup once created needs to be followed as it is unless and untill there is some bussiness requirement to change it. Moreover when changing setups you can not simply go and change them. A lot of things have to be considered before it is done.
    So stop playing with the setups. There are lot of other things than Navision to entertainment with.

    Dear Sandeep... good reply!

    I appreciate the way you make your point but note that sometimes while attempting certain tasks in Navision, you come to know about loopholes. Nobody will play with the setup intentionally but if somebody makes this mistake unknowingly, what's the solution?

    The acess to the setup is not given to normal users. It lies with the Super User and also What I normally do is to make the form uneditable. When ever the user needs a modification , a change request is generated by the user, approved by the designated person and forwarded to the system admin to make the necessary changes after making the form editable and later making it again uneditable.

    Dear Sandeep,

    You mean to say, you make all the master forms uneditable after the setup is done and tested before going live? Have you ever done this thing in any project? Did you find any problems because of this solution or is it working fine? I am really interested in knowing...

    Well a lot of problems but Not to me \:D/ \:D/
    It was to some user who knew Navision beforehand and as they were doing in their previous organization , they were unable to play with the master data here. \:D/

    On a serious note it helped in post implementation a lot. The system admin is able to control the project and it also save erronous master data from entring. As far as setup is concerned they always communicates and discuss before changing.
    It gives my company revenue. \:D/ \:D/
