2027958 - Unable to Save New Check Lot: The previous Check Lot is Also Flagged for Automatic Payments

Symptom

Your current check lots are gone. You are trying to set up a new Check number range, however the system informs that the previous check lot is also flagged for automatic payments.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to MyBanks subview.
  3. Select your bank and click Edit -> Bank Accounts.
  4. Select the relevant bank account and go to the Check Lot tab.
  5. You have already have created check lots, however the number range on each of them are gone, hence you click Add Row and set up a new one.
  6. Flag the field Used for Automatic Check Numbering.

The following error message is raised: Check lot <check lot ID> is also flagged for automatic payments

Cause

Even though the previous check lots have no further numbers available, the automatic check number assignment is still in place.

Resolution

In order to create a new check lot and set the automatic number assignment, you have to uncheck this option from the already used check lots and mark them as blocked.

  1. Go to Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to MyBanks subview.
  3. Select your bank and click Edit -> Bank Accounts.
  4. Select the relevant bank account and go to the Check Lot tab.
  5. Select the check lot, which has no check numbers available.
  6. Uncheck the Used for Automatic Check Numbering option.
  7. Mark it as blocked.

After that, you should be able to mark your new check lot for automatic check numbering.

In case the previous check lot is not yet fully consumed, you may use the Next Check Lot ID field with reference to the subsequent check lot ID. With this field populated, more than one check lot may have the automatic flag.
