How to Block a Location in Microsoft Dynamics NAV

ArcherPoint How-To Blog: Step-by-step instructions on how to perform specific tasks in Microsoft Dynamics NAVWe have seen some questions on the various Dynamics NAV Forums about how to ‘Block’ a location in Dynamics NAV.

Unfortunately there isn’t a current method to do so, so we offer this work-around. It is not the perfect solution, but it works.

NOTE: This work-around is to not create (or remove) the Inventory Posting Setup for this location.

To begin, we created a location called ‘TEST.’

Create a new Location

Figure 1 – Create a new Location

We created a Purchase Order and then tried to receive it into the TEST Location and got the following error:

Error displayed when trying to receive a Purchase Order into the new Location

Figure 2 – Error displayed when trying to receive a Purchase Order into the new Location

Make sure to run Adjust Cost/Post Cost before you delete the posting setup.
