In GP we have a customer posting by batch date. Each time they enter a transaction in the batch with a transaction date for a closed period, they receive the message 'The fiscal period that contains this date is closed.' This happens for every transaction in the batch despite the fact that the batch posting date is for an open fiscal period. Is there a way to disable this message?
Why would they be using a batch with a Batch date in a closed period?
The batch date is in an open period, the transaction date is in a closed period.
Got it Alicia - I'm dyslexic today :) Another question then - why do they want to post transactions into a different period than the Batch? That will cause the sub-ledger to be out of balance with the General Ledger because the Batch Posting Date is the GL Posting Date.
Yes, you can use the 'Before Modal Dialog' event in VBA to 'answer' the question before it is presented to the user.
Thanks! I was hoping it wouldn't involve a customization. Is this the only option?
It's the only one that I know of, but it's really easy. I can help you with it if you want. It's VBA, so it's not like some Dexterity programming.
Call me if you want 972-814-8550, I had a job move forward a week, so I have some time to chat about it. I know how irritating these dialog boxes can be. If you decide to go this way, we can post the completed code to this thread in case someone else has the same issue.
Do they have Doc Date Verify enabled in the Professional Services Tools Library? I believe that's what causes the date check on subledger transactions. Out of the box GP only checks GL dates. I typically always have that turned on, but I just tested turning it off and entered an AR transaction batch as you described and received no date warnings. I didn't se what transaction type your customer is using, but I think this will be pretty global for AP and AR. If you're testing this, make sure to restart GP after turning off Doc Date Verify.
We are currently implementing Altec DocLink and the import is failing because on the Payables Transaction Entry window DocLink is importing a document date that is from a prior period. They are basically running a macro and it is failing when the warning comes up about fiscal period is closed. I'm wondering if you ever did the modification - 'Before Modal Dialog' event in VBA to 'answer' the question before it is presented to the user? We believe this would correct the problem so the import would not fail on the fiscal period warning. Thank you very much, Bryan
