Payables Management Batch Posting Date Disabled When Workflow Active

Microsoft Dynamics GPA client recently logged an issue whereby the Posting Date on the Payables Batch Entry window (Purchasing area page » Transactions » Batches) in some companies:

Payables Batch Entry with Posting Date disabled

When we investigated the issue, it turned out that the field was disabled in those companies which had a Payables Transaction Approval workflow active; I did additional testing and the Payables Batch Approval workflow does not have the same effect.

It turns out this is a known bug with Microsoft (quality issue 91267) which only occurs when Mutlicurrency Management is not registered:

Registration

Once Multicurrency Management is registered in the Registration window (Administration area page » Setup » System » Registration), the field on the Payables Batch Entry window will be enabled:

Payables Batch Entry with Posting Date enabled

It is now recommended that Microsoft Dynamics GP be implemented with Multicurrency Management registered, but this is a long time user of Dynamics GP who has never had it registered. Just after I wrote this post, a second client encountered the same issue; again a long time user of Dynamics GP.

What should we write about next?
