“There is nothing to post because the journal does not contain a quantity or amount” Error in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralI was doing some training for a client last month where I was showing them how to process on the general ledger in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and encountered an error when we were looking at recurring journals for accruals:

Error message

There is nothing to post because the journal does not contain a quantity or amount

Not a terribly helpful error message as there were several lines on the journal and we’d successfully posted a couple of months of the journal already; however, with a little thought, I realised that this could be a date issue as each posting had wound the date forward one month.

I opened the My Settings page and changed the Work Date into June:

My Settings page

Another attempt at posting the recurring journal was successful, confirming that when posting a journal, the posting date must be earlier than the work date.

What should we write about next?
