I have come across a few different situations where a user has printed computer checks out of Navision where the check printed fine, but when the user goes to post the payment journal an “out of balance” message appears and the journal cannot be posted.
Here is an example of a Payment Journal where the checks have been printed correctly and the Total Balance is zero.
When going to post this error message appears.
The reason for the error is because the data is not listed in order of Vendor No so
that when Navision goes through the posting process the balancing credit amount
line is not directly after the debit lines. To resolve this error without voiding the checks and rearranging the data, you can simply re-sort the journal by changing the sort option from the
default “Journal Template Name,Journal Batch Name,Line No.” key to the “Journal Template Name,Journal Batch Name,Posting Date,Document No.”
