1.  Able to post to closed period

Posted 7 days ago
Hi everyone,

I recently posted about a batch issue we had on here. We were able to find a resolution because we actually had the period closed that we were trying to post to.

She was able to create transactions and save a batch with an August date even though that month had not been opened in fiscal periods. Then when she tried to post, she was getting an error. The edit batch list did not show the error though. Finally, she recreated the batch and then got the error message. She wasn't able to save it because it was for a date in August. She had created the original batch 3 days ago so it was in August as well when she created it.

Why would she have been able to save the batch before and not this time? Why didn't GP alert her previously?

Thanks,

​When the batch was originally created, was the period open?

Leslie,

They usually have one user who opens the period and another who posts. When we went to look the period was closed. Once they open a period, they leave it open for the whole year so I doubt anyone would have went and closed it.
