2487240 - Manual Entries Postings Are Allowed Though Period Is Blocked

Symptom

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger Workcenter
  2. Navigate to the Companies view
  3. Select company - ABC and click on the set process controls tab
  4. Under the General Tab, select 01-Manual entries
  5. Click on the actions tab and simulate process control, there is a message On DD.MM.YYY postings are allowed for process group All and date DD.MM.YYYY  though 04 - Time or Service Confirmation for period/year XXX/XXXX is blocked.

Cause

You will notice that the set process controls for 0-All entries which is not blocked and so it will override the 1 - Manual entries set process controls. Hence the system will allow entries for the date DD.MM.YYYY which are blocked with 04 - Time or Service Confirmation for period/year XXX/XXXX.

Resolution

  1. Go to the General Ledger Workcenter
  2. Navigate to the Companies view
  3. Select company - ABC and click on the set process controls tab
  4. Under the General Tab, select 0-All entries and change the Process control status to Blocked
  5. Click on the Save button.
  6. After this the users will not be able to simulate the 1 - Manual entries set process controls
