3043152 - Error Message: Posting on date DD/MM/YYYY blocked, Release not Possible when you Approve a Cancellation Invoice

Symptom

You want to approve a Cancellation Invoice but when you click Approve you receive the error message: Posting on date DD/MM/YYYY blocked, Release not Possible.

You don't understand why you have this error message because in the Invoice was canceled already.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Managing My Area work center.
  2. Select the Approvals view.
  3. Search for the Approve Manual Customer Invoice/Credit (ABC represents the ID of your Invoice).
  4. Click on Edit Button.
  5. Click on Approve.

The system throws error message: Posting on date DD/MM/YYYY blocked, Release not Possible.

Cause

When creating a cancellation invoice, the document will take the details from the original invoice, this includes the post date which in this case is the invoice date.

As the period is closed you can either open it or add a new posting date under the accounting section of the general tab.

Resolution

You will need to send the document back for revision. Make the changes, release and approve the documents again.
