To avoid or fix errors related to the order of document numbers when you post item journals, you can use the Renumber Document Numbers action before you post.

Feature details

On the Item Journals page, the Document No. field is editable so that you can specify different document numbers for different journal lines, or the same document number for related journal lines.

If a number series is specified in the No. Series field on the item journal batch, document numbers for individual or grouped lines must be in sequential order when you post an item journal. If they aren't, you can't post the journal. To avoid problems with posting, you can use the Renumber Document Numbers action on the Item Journals page before you post the journal. If related journal lines were grouped by document number before you used the action, they'll stay grouped but might be assigned a different document number.

The Renumber Document Numbers action also works on filtered views.
