There is a parameter that either allows duplicate invoice numbers (with a WARNING) to be entered in AP Voucher Entry and Editing (Task 1) or to disallow duplicate invoice numbers. To set the parameter, go to:
· Accounts Payable (Module 3)
o System Management Functions (Task 32)
§ Modify Parameter Files (Subtask 22)
· A/P General (Option 1)
Look for parameter:
DUP'DOC'ACTION= Options are: STOP or WARN
Changing the setting from "STOP" to "WARN" will allow duplicate vendor invoice numbers entered, with a warning, but the system will allow the operator to continue, rather than stopping the operator and not allowing the invoice number to be used or entered.
