You receive "Unhandled Script Exception: Invalid Product ID 258" when attempting drill-down into an invoice from Purchasing All-In-One view

Just recently, I was helping someone on a forum with a question regarding the Purchasing All-In-One view. The consultant could not get the view to show the receipts and invoices for some vendor POs. In order to assist with the issue, I had to try and recreate the issue myself. Needless to say, I could not recreate the specific problem reported by the consultant. However, in an attempt to drill-down on a specific invoice voucher, I received the following error message:

Unhandled script exception:
Invalid Product ID 258.


Product 258 corresponds to Project Accounting. Suffice to say, there isn't any validation in place to determine if the Project Accounting dictionary is present, before attempting to display the invoice. The workaround, of course, is to install Project Accounting even if you don't need it, until a fix is in place from Microsoft.

This issue is present in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 YE (14.00.1016) and Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 RTM (16.00.0404). I have not tested GP 2016 R2, but see no specific reason to believe this is been fixed, given the fact that this condition only occurs if Project Accounting is not installed.

Until next post!
