NAV 2013 & NAV 2013 R2 - Comman Issue Related to Dimension in Step 2.

Hi all,

This is one of the most Common error that most of us are facing while upgrading to NAV 2013 or NAV 2013 R2 From NAV 2009 / 2009 SP1 / 2009 R2.

What we had Completed?

A. We completed Step 1 Successfully.
B. Converted the Database to NAV 2013.
C. Converted the Database to NAV 2013 R2.
D. Imported the Merged Objects & Toolkit Step 2 Objects.

What we are Currently Doing?

A. Run the Upgrade Step 2.
B. Tested the Connection.
C. Clicked on Transfer Data.

What is the Error Message While Transferring Dimension?

Dimension Value ID must have a value in Dimension Set Entry: Dimension Set ID=0, Dimension Code=<Dimenion Code>. It cannot be zero or empty.

Why the Error Message?

After Trying to Find the Reason, i figured out that the error is due to a dimension Value that have been applied on a posted or UN-posted document, but due to certain Required Customization our Code had deleted the Dimension Value from Dimension Value Table.

Below is the Example to understand the issue -

1. I have a Posted Sales Invoice Which have Dimension Code is AREA and Dimension Value for AREA IS 30.

2. Our Code have deleted the Value 30 For Dimension AREA as Shown Below. (User cannot delete from here as there is a check which check usage of Dimension Value in Documents)

* As per Microsoft Standard we should not delete any dimension Value instead if don't want to use the same we can set the Blocked as True.

So Now we know what is the issue, in the Next post we will see how we resolve issue if -

A) We are about to begin the Upgrade.

B) We are in step 2 of Upgrade and Facing this issue.
