When you use eConnect to integrate Payables Management Transactions, you may receive the error:

Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'DISAVAMT', table 'TWO.dbo.POP10300'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails. The statement has been terminated.


The message that you receive is because the drop-down list for Discount Type field is blank that will cause the null error to be returned.


To resolve the issue, you have to open the Payment Terms Setup window through the following method.

  1. Select the Vendor ID that you use on the payables transaction in the Vendor Maintenance window.

  2. Click the Options button.

  3. Click the Payment Terms hyperlink.


    The Payment Terms Setup window will open.

  4. Check the Discount Type field to see whether the drop-down list is blank.

  5. If the drop-down list is blank select either the Percent or Amount value and then press the Save.

This process will set the drop-down list to the specific value that you have specified instead of blank. This allows for the payables transaction to be integrated.
