Accidentally posted batch (purchasing period was opened, financial module was closed for period)


I am new to GP and opened up the purchasing period, and posted a batch... but when the General Journal entry screen appeared, it said "Sorry, cannot post to a closed period"... So now I realize that I have posted in the purchasing module period, and possibly NOT in the financial module... does this mean that it is hitting my subledger, but not my general ledger? 


What would I need to do to correct this? Void the entries in the purchasing period, and then re-do this?


  • This is a common issue when customer have performed the year end close, but have not selected to close the periods for all modules. In this situation, the payables entries should be voided / reversed and the associated GL batch deleted. This will back out the AP sub-ledger balance so that it continues to balance with the GL.
