Posting Error after changing the Distribution Account

    Hello, I had to issue a credit & rebill just to change price. I had it reviewed -  my edit list (attached) as always before I post. I was told the distribution on the credit is not correct.

    I went in & changed it manually and had it reviewed - it is correct. Now I am getting this error & it will not let me post.


    This Cost of goods sold distribution amount is incorrect and will not be posted. Do you want to save with errors.

    Am trying to figure out what is wrong.  The solutions I tried don't apply to this transaction (I googled this error message)

    Hi Mary,

    For an invoice with sales inventory items, you should have a distribution type for RECV and SALES and then an amount for INV and COGS.  I don't see the latter on your invoice in the posting journal.  It may be helpful for you to look at a past invoice in history of the same or similar item as a reference.

    EDIT:  Just thought of this after I hit post - I'm not sure that shows on the edit list before posting so while we may not see it in the screenshot posted it still may be the cause of the issue.
