Post resource cost to general ledger in Job Journal

tinoruijstinoruijs Member Posts: 1,226

I'm using NAV 5.0 SP1.
When posting resource usage to a job in Job Journal, I would like to create general ledger entries.
The WIP-method is contract completed. Resource costs should be posted debet on a WIP-G/L-account (3110) and credit on a G/L-account called "covering Salary" (4080).

This means the journal ledger entries should be when using Job Journal:
3310 WIP costs
A 4080 Covering Salary

When the project is being closed, the costs are recognized and the entries are:
6110 Job Costs
A 3310 WIP costs

Summarized: I want to create ledger entries when posting resource-costs in the job journal.

Thanks in advance.

    Here's the solution I made:
    When the "Res. Ledger Entry" is created in codeunit 212 a new function in the same codeunit is called, which creates and posts a general journal line.

    I've created a new journal batch for this and I use the same document no. as is used in the resource ledger entry.

    After creating the general journal line it's just one line of code to post the line:
    CODEUNIT.RUN(CODEUNIT::"Gen. Jnl.-Post", lrecGenJournalLine);

    That's it. Quite simple. :)

    6 years later and still no solution present in NAV 2013 in the job module.
    Isn't that strange?
    Or do my customers want strange things?
    I wonder how other companies deal with resource costs on jobs?

    I guess in NAV 2018 you are using now Items with type = Service ?

    Hi, I am wondering if you can share the solution of complete modification (coding) that you have done?
    I think even on Business Central, there is still no solution for this.
    Thank you
