Release Note Details

Please ensure when taking patch 31455, this patch is also taken.

It was discovered in QA testing the Additional batch validation check could cause AP posting to remain in a "incomplete" state. The scenario discovered was when an AP batch is posted, if there are validation errors it would halt the clean up of the AP posting regime leaving behind the batch in Invoice Entry and Editing.

When you clear the post flag an try again the AP Post would display the following message. 

This is due to the AP Post would create a new batch however since the voucher items had previously been entered into the GL there were no items in this new batch. The new balance check would therefore not find this new batch and return an exception error hence the message displayed.

This patch updates the AP Post to use the updated posting regime and corrects the balance check to return a warning exception. This allows AP to continue posting and processing.
