Post Ledger Transactions via X++

For beginner AX developers, I’m listing some codes which will help someone to post ledger transactions via X++ codes. This may be helpful to new Developers. [Level 200]

There are two ways to be considered when posting transactions:
1. Use the LedgerVoucher class and sub-classes API.
2. Use a journal Classes.

1. Use the LedgerVoucher class and sub-classes API.

The Classes are:
• LedgerVoucher - Posting {LedgerVoucher harnesses the posting of multiple vouchers at a time. }
• LedgerVoucherObject - Voucher {The LedgerVoucher class holds all the vouchers in temporary storage.}
• LedgerVoucherTransObject – Transactions {Holds transactions in each Voucher}

Instantiation of LedgerVoucher


Instantiation of LedgerVoucherObject


Instantiation of LedgerVoucherTransObject

LedgerVoucherTransObject newCreateTrans(_ledgerVoucherObject,
_exchRate ,
_markBridging ,
AmountMST ])

Sample Code
static void LedgerVoucherAPISample(Args _args)
LedgerVoucher _LedgerVoucher;
LedgerVoucherObject _LedgerVoucherObject;
LedgerVoucherTransObject _LedgerVoucherTransObject;
NumberSeq _NumberSeq;
Dimension _Dimension;

NumberSequenceCode _VoucherCode = 'Ledger_3'; // 'Ledger_3' is the voucher Numbersequence in the Path AX>General Ledger>Setup>Journals>Journal Names. Its the Voucher Numref for the Journal Name :)
LedgerAccount _Account = '110180';
LedgerAccount _OffsetAccount = '140270';
AmountCur _AmountCur = 12345.67;

_NumberSeq = NumberSeq::newGetVoucherFromCode(_VoucherCode);
_LedgerVoucher = LedgerVoucher::newLedgerPost(DetailSummary::Detail,
_LedgerVoucherObject = LedgerVoucherObject::newVoucher(_NumberSeq.voucher());
_LedgerVoucherTransObject = LedgerVoucherTransObject::newCreateTrans(_LedgerVoucherObject,
_LedgerVoucherTransObject.parmTransTxt("Arijit Basu");
_LedgerVoucherTransObject = LedgerVoucherTransObject::newCreateTrans(_LedgerVoucherObject,
_LedgerVoucherTransObject.parmTransTxt("Arijit Basu");


2. Use a journal Classes.

The tables used are LedgerJournalName, LedgerJournalTable, and LedgerJournalTrans.
The steps are:
• Create a journal table record {Table\LedgerJournalTable}
• Create lines for each transaction to be posted {Table\LedgerJournalTrans}.
• Post the journal. {Classes\LedgerJournalCheckPost}

Sample Code

static void LedgerJournalCheckPostDemo(Args _args)
LedgerJournalTable _LedgerJournalTable;
LedgerJournalTrans _LedgerJournalTrans;
LedgerJournalCheckPost _LedgerJournalCheckPost;
NumberSeq _NumberSeq;

//----Journal Header
_LedgerJournalTable.JournalName = 'Day1';
_LedgerJournalTable.Name = 'Daily Journal';
//----Journal Line
_NumberSeq =NumberSeq::newGetVoucherFromCode(LedgerJournalName::find(_LedgerJournalTable.JournalName).VoucherSeries);
_LedgerJournalTrans.Voucher =_NumberSeq.voucher();
_LedgerJournalTrans.JournalNum =_LedgerJournalTable.JournalNum;
_LedgerJournalTrans.CurrencyCode =CompanyInfo::standardCurrency();
_LedgerJournalTrans.ExchRate =Currency::exchRate(_LedgerJournalTrans.CurrencyCode);
_LedgerJournalTrans.AccountNum ='110180';
_LedgerJournalTrans.AmountCurDebit =1000;
_LedgerJournalTrans.TransDate =Today();
_LedgerJournalTrans.OffsetAccount ='140270';
_LedgerJournalTrans.Txt ='Arijit Basu :)';
//----Journal Posting
_LedgerJournalCheckPost =LedgerJournalCheckPost::newLedgerJournalTable(_LedgerJournalTable,NoYes::Yes);;
Info(StrFmt("Journal %1 is posted",_LedgerJournalTable.JournalNum));

Happy DAXing :)
