RE: Change Custom Field on Closed Invoice
Hi, do you know if it’s possible to update a custom field on an invoice that’s in a closed period?
I’ve got a workflow setting a custom field with the date an invoice is paid. It’s a non-GL impacting change. But if the accounting period is closed, I can’t update the field. Anyone know a way around this?
The SuiteAnswers topic Accounting Period Close talk about that
“When a period that has been locked has the Allow Non-G/L Changes box checked, users can make changes to posting transactions if the changes do not affect the general ledger. Users must have the Setup permission Allow Non G/L Changes to make such changes. Users with the Override Period Restrictions permission can make changes to posting transaction, whether the changes impact the general ledger or not, in a period that has been locked to transactions.
If users who do not have the Override Period Restrictions permission must make changes to posting transactions that impact the general ledger, transactions must be unlocked for the period. You cannot unlock transactions for a closed period. You must first reopen the period. “
