If this error is received, an accounting period must be added to the fiscal calendar control record before be able to complete the entry.

This can be done by going from the main menu to menu 9 – 6 – 13. Once in this screen ensure the period end date is correct, and then hit return key.

This can be done for as many periods that may be needed to complete the year end verification. This will enable everyone to continue working in the next period without closing the year.
