Budget Journal Has Posting Status = Error 4

When you put a control total on the JOURNAL (instead of the batch), the system will select the journal for posting, perform funds reservation and then will NOT post the journal because of the control total violation -- the posting status will show as an error ("Error4 - Showing journal control total violation").

To post this batch, you MUST:

  1. Unreserve the funds.
  2. Fix the control total violation by entering a control total equal to the total debits or total credits (whichever is greater).
  3. Reserve funds (which will re-save the batch).

The posting status will remain in error until the nightly posting run re-selects the batch. At that time, the batch will be posted successfully.
