1647437 - Cannot Release Outgoing Check Due to Error Message: Insufficient Money on Bank Account XYZ

Symptom

You try to manually pay a supplier by check. When you choose Release, the system gives an error message: Insufficient money on bank account XYZ. But you are sure that there is enough balance on the checking account XYZ.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payables work center, and choose the Suppliers view.
  2. Select the Supplier Accounts subview.
  3. Choose Supplier ABC, and then choose View.
  4. Choose the Open Item DEF, and then choose Outgoing Check and Pay Manually By.
  5. After completing all the necessary data, choose Release.

     You can see the error message: Insufficient money on bank account XYZ.

Cause

When you choose the Release button of an outgoing check, the system also takes those open payment proposals into account in order to check against the balance in the bank account XYZ, if you look at the Automatic Payments in the Payables work center, you can see there are a lot of open payment proposals which are charged to bank account XYZ, so this leads to the fact that the balance in the bank account XYZ is not enough to pay the open item DEF of your supplier ABC.

Resolution

In order to get rid of the error message and successfully release the outgoing check, you can either void some of those open payment proposals or make the system stop doing the liquidity check.

To void the open payment proposal, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Payables work center, and choose the Automatic Payments view.
  2. Select the open payment proposal charged to bank account XYZ.
  3. Choose Actions, and then choose Void.
  4. Repeat the same procedure for all those payment proposals that you want to void.

To stop the system from doing the liquidity check of bank account XYZ, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Payables work center, and choose the Suppliers view.
  2. Select the Supplier Accounts subview.
  3. Choose Supplier ABC, and then choose View.
  4. Choose the Open Item DEF, and then choose Outgoing Check and Pay Manually By.
  5. Tick Liquidity Allocation Not Required.

You should be able to release the outgoing check in both ways.
