Beginning balance journal funding source error

Posted on by 5

Hello all,

We are trying to move revenue and cost balances from an existing D365 project to a new project using the beginning balances journal as we do not want a GL impact from the transfer.

Where there are multiple funding sources against a project the system removes the project ID populated and we receive an error message "Funding source is mandatory for time and materials and fixed price projects" but we are unable to manually populate the funding source ID field. Each funding source is allocated 100% to one customer, there are no split allocations.

The same error occurs on both the expense/hour/item and on-account tabs.

The funding source ID field automatically populates where there is only one funding source.

Does anyone know how we can fix this error?

Many thanks for your help

    Hi Kirsty,

    There is a details form at the bottom of the screen which lets you pick the required Funding Source for a project contract where there is more than one funding source.

    Hopefully this will allow you to fix the error and upload your balances.

    Kind regards
