Set Up Operation Codes

You can add as many operation codes as you want to the table. However, the operation codes C, D, and I already exist in Business Central. For example, Credit Memos always have the operation code D. You cannot set up these values in the table because they are system-created codes. If you try to add them, Business Central will return an error.

To set up operation codes

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Operation Codes, and then choose the related link.

  2. On the Operation Codes page, fill in the fields as described in the following table

    Field Description

    Valid codes are numbers 1 – 8, and letters A – Z.

    To submit a report under the CAC regimen, you must make certain that the code Z, which is required for these types of transactions, is in the list of operation codes.

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Posting Groups, and then choose the related link.

  2. Choose the General Product Posting Groups action.

  3. On the General Product Posting Groups page, link each operation code to a general product posting group.

    Field Description
    Code Enter a code to create a new general product posting group.
    Description Enter a description for the general product posting group
    Def. VAT Prod. Posting Group Select a VAT percentage to link it to the general product posting group.
    Operation Code Select an appropriate operation code to link it to the general product posting group. You can assigne the same operation code to different posting groups. Note: It is important to link the operation code to the correct VAT product posting group. The Make 340 Declaration report uses the setup to create trade declarations.

When you add an operation code to the general product posting group, that association is in turn applied to the items that have that general product posting group.
