Post Batch for Purchase Invoices

Posted on by 6
In the Purchases & Payables Setup Default Posting Date is set to /no Date/, Usually purchase invoices have posting date, but purchase orders don't. It is possible to post purchase invoices manually, but using Post Batch function, we receive an error Posting Date must have a value in Purchase Header: Document Type = Order No = xxxxx. It cannot be zero or empty. Why is it possible to post invoice manually, but Post Batch gives an error?

    As its name suggests: a posting routine requires a Posting Date.
    I must contradict that it will be possible to post a Purchase Invoice manually without a posting date... it isn't.
    Any document (regardless of itstype Order/Invoice/ Credit Memo/... ) will need a value in the Posting Date field.
    Otherwise, ledger entries would be created without a date... and the values will have ne period to go in reporting/VAT/...
    So... posting without a date simply is not an option.

    Did you try to give a posting date in the request form for the batch job?
