Payables Management Batch Posting Date Disabled When Workflow Active

January 28th, 2019 by

Microsoft Dynamics GPA client recently logged an issue whereby the Posting Date on the Payables Batch Entry window (Purchasing area page » Transactions » Batches) in some companies:

Payables Batch Entry with Posting Date disabled

When we investigated the issue, it turned out that the field was disabled in those companies which had a Payables Transaction Approval workflow active; I did additional testing and the Payables Batch Approval workflow does not have the same effect.

It turns out this is a known bug with Microsoft (quality issue 91267) which only occurs when Mutlicurrency Management is not registered:

Registration

Once Multicurrency Management is registered in the Registration window (Administration area page » Setup » System » Registration), the field on the Payables Batch Entry window will be enabled:

Payables Batch Entry with Posting Date enabled

It is now recommended that Microsoft Dynamics GP be implemented with Multicurrency Management registered, but this is a long time user of Dynamics GP who has never had it registered. Just after I wrote this post, a second client encountered the same issue; again a long time user of Dynamics GP.
