    I have a user trying to post a sales order in March, but she is getting an error indicating that it is outside of her allowable posting date.

    In User Setup, I have confirmed that her allowable posting dates are 3/1/2019-3/31/2019. Any ideas as to what else could be causing the issue?

    With average costing, if entries happened in the next period to an item that is being posted in a previous period, the system tries to update the entries in the following period, but because the user is limited to only 1 period, the system will not allow for it.

    Hi Matt,

    Well it doesn't seem like the posting date error is related to the Sales Header Posting date not matching the allowed range as I would have expected a message more like the following. Your error is related to item journal line etc... Can you provide reproduction steps from the user to understand exactly what they are doing when they get the error?

    I almost always see this because Automatic Adjust Cost is turned on (unless it is customization related). It is probably looking for the first allowed posting date which is based on G/L Setup dates as opposed to User Setup dates. Then it sees that what it got from G/L Setup isn't allowed by the User Setup.

    I have seen the same error, and Mr. Traxinger's explanation makes sense to me.
    Scenario:  We have March open in the G/L setup, but the user entering sales invoices is restricted to April dates.  The user gets the error message when trying to post an April invoice.
    But if I then expand the user's dates to include March, the user is able to post the invoice.
