Tax amount calculation for Sales order

Posted on by 1,737

I am Customize the sales Invoice Report Morphx Report In ax 2012, 

I am Writing the code to get the total tax amount and Individual Tax amount for Particular Sales order

Below code  and call in the fetch method.

public real TaxAmountLoc3(SalesLine saleLine)
TmpTaxWorkTrans tmpTax;
SalesTotals salesTotals;
CustInvoiceJour _CustInvoiceJourLoc;
TaxData taxData;

_CustInvoiceJourLoc = element.args().record();
salesTotals = salesTotals::construct(salesTable);

// Calculate Tax

// Load tmpTaxWorkTrans

// Showing taxes with tax value
select tmpTax
select taxTable
where taxTable.TaxCode == tmpTax.TaxCode
join taxData
where taxData.TaxCode == TaxTable.TaxCode;
if(taxTable.TaxType_IN == TaxType_IN::None)
None += tmpTax.TaxAmount;
if(taxTable.TaxType_IN == TaxType_IN::Excise)
Excise += tmpTax.TaxAmount;
ExciseValue += taxData.TaxValue;
if(taxTable.TaxType_IN == TaxType_IN::VAT)
Vat += tmpTax.TaxAmount;
VatValue += taxData.TaxValue;
if(taxTable.TaxType_IN == TaxType_IN::SalesTax)
CST += tmpTax.TaxAmount;
CSTValue += taxData.TaxValue;
/*if(taxTable.TaxType_IN == TaxType_IN::ServiceTax)
ServiceTax += tmpTax.TaxAmount;
return None+Excise+Vat+CST;


But the Problem is If Tax amount is setup for the Particular Sales order it is running and tax amount is calculated.

Suppose  "tax is not setup" in the Sales order it is Throwing the below Error.

"A currency to convert from is required to retrieve exchange rate information."

How to solve this Please Help me.

    in class salesTotals there is no calc() method.

    is some custom method written in this class if so please share the method detail code inside method body by pressing F12 on the method calc()  the method body will be shown.

    have you tried to debug the code? and identified exactly on which line you are getting this message. if not place break point and debug the code after that hopefully you will understand exactly on which statement you are getting error. seems like on tax field empty string is being passed to some method
