Get Next Journal Entry Number

Microsoft Dynamics GPA colleague is currently working on some development for Microsoft Dynamics GP and needs to create a journal.

I did some digging around the company database looking for the correct way to get the next Journal Entry number and found a function called glGetNextJournalEntry.

A little work and I was able to supply the following to the developer for him to wrap into a stored procedure to get the Journal Entry number and make sure there were no issues in GP;
