Dynamics GP: 'You can't mark the checkbox for this transaction because it has been voided' message in bank reconciliation when trying to clear a check

Writing on Dynamics GP Support and Service Blog, Cheryl Waswick noted that when you mark a check to be cleared in the "select bank transactions" window, you get the message: "You can't mark the checkbox for this transaction because it has been voided."

She then explained that this message means the check that you tried to mark as cleared has already been voided in Microsoft Dynamics GP with a later date. As such, you can't mark it cleared because you can't clear a check and void it as well. You can only do one or the other. has to be one or the other.

In her blog post, Waswick then explains what you have to do to correct this issue.

GP upgrade tips series intro

On her JenKuntz.ca blog, Jen Kuntz started a series around Dynamics GP upgrades. Kuntz's first tip was to always do a test upgrade.

Kuntz stated that if you’re crossing major versions, e.g., from GP 2015 or GP 2016 to GP 18.x, you should always plan to do a test upgrade. The exception would be clients with very simple "vanilla" installs, few-to-none on the ISV products side of things.

Other than that, she noted that everyone should set up an environment where you can run through the upgrade process once before a live upgrade. She then offered several reasons for always doing a test upgrade.
