The invoice date entered is beyond the number of months specified
Every time I create a bill I get the following pop-up error message:
The Invoice Date entered is beyond the number of months specified after the current accounting month. Is this date correct?
There are two things that will trigger this message.
- Your Accounting Period has not been incremented and is, therefore, months behind the current month
- Your System Administrator has your options set to send the warning at too low of a number
To resolve the problem:
- Increment your Accounting Period to be closer to the current date and within the boundaries set up in Options.
- Ask your System Administrator to change the Warning Period to be a much larger number than the difference between your current accounting period and the current month.
Your Current Accounting Period is displayed in the upper right corner of your screen. If you count the months between your Current Accounting Period and the Current Month, you may suggest a higher number for your administrator to enter in the Organization Options, Date Entry Warning screen.
