Running Invoices In Batch Mode

Microsoft Dynamics AX Forum

Question Status



In Sales Ledger > Periodic > Sales Update > Invoice

We currently run this in non batch mode (and print the invoices straight to printer) and I want to change it to batch mode.

When selecting batch mode I get the following message.

Any Ideas?

Thank you

Hi Simon,

what is the print destination?

Is it a printer? Can you check if server has access to this printer?

When you run it in batch mode, it runs on server not on your PC. Therefore, server must have access to that print location.


Hello Simon,

Did you make any progress here?

Would be great if you could keep us informed.

Many thanks,

an Extension to Fatih Gork's answer.

You can do that in 2 ways.

a. installing the Printer Driver in the Server machine(s), where the Batch is executed

b. in the Report print Destination, select the Printer with the Network path. (instead of selecting locally)

No progress at the moment.

I have installed the printer on the server that the batch runs on. Still no luck.

I believe I have found a solution to this problem

When setting the invoice destination in printer setup, you also need to set the destination for both the Invoice (copy) and the Entry certificate to the same printer you have configured on the report server

I will verify this tomorrow when I run the invoices

You could try to install the printer on server and allow AX clients to use that printer. This way may support batch printing.

Please refer into the following links

Just an update on this.

The batch job successfully works


The invoices do not come off on the printer
