Hi All,

I am getting warning repeated warning message "Financial Posting is in progress. The GL accountant will decided in which period to post" during Journal entry posting. Please note I posting in Current period and posting periods are open for "10 - Operational Posting" for both first and last step allowed. As anyone experienced the same issue, please share your resolution to fix this.

Regards, Eva

Additional Information: I receive this warning message during creation "New Manual Invoice Request" under customer invoicing.



Hi Eva,

The reason could be posting date of the invoice could be prior to the Posting date for Migration. You can see the information in General Ledger>Companies view.
Can you check the information once.

Best Regards,

Hi Annapurna,

Please note the posting dates for the company id where I am having issue and

Posting Date for Migration - Dec 31, 2017

Posting Date for Initial Migration - Jan 01, 2017

We are facing this warning message issue from last two weeks.

Best Regards,



Hi Eva,

Just wondering if you were able to figure out the root cause of this? I am also getting the same warning message and it seems like whenever I post a transaction with posting date that is prior to the 'posting date for migration", this warning message is raised. However, the system still allows me the post the transaction. So I am not sure if there is a negative impact on getting these warnings..

Hi Eva,

Check the status of the process control for the period:

Go to General Ledger -> Set of Books and Assigned Companies -> Open and Close Periods

Highlight the current period and check it's process control in the underneath table.

For the posting to go through, the period must be open for operational postings with a not blocked and valid process control.

Further details you can find in my blog post:

Hi Alexandre,

It seems like the issue is related to the "posting date for migration" rather than the process control. In my case, the posting periods and the process control is not the issue as they are all valid.
