As we all know, we need to post the Sales Invoice entry after creation in Sage X3. And after posting, Journal entry of that posted invoice is created automatically.
But sometimes, an error occurs after clicking on the post button on the Sales Invoice screen because of some improper configuration settings. The invoice gets created successfully but it throws an error while posting the same invoice that “Automatic Journal does not allow validation”.
As shown in the below screenshot, Sales Invoice – 100012206INVBC000017 is not getting posted because of the Automatic Journal error.

Now we will see, how to solve the Automatic Journal error which we are facing while posting the invoice.
STEP 1: Navigate to Sales -> Invoices -> Sales Invoice -> Jump to Invoice Type
STEP 2: In Invoice Type Master, Jump to Sales Automatic Journal as shown in the below screenshot.
STEP 3: After that, in Automatic Journal Master, in Legislations, IND checkbox should be checked. But as you can see in the below screenshot, it is not checked. Due to which we are facing that Automatic Journal error. Check “IND” checkbox and click on “Save” button.
STEP 4: Click on “Lines” button on Automatic Journals screen. After that in Automatic Journals Lines, IND checkbox should be checked in legislation (Refer below screenshot). And it should be checked for all the lines which are getting displayed in the left panel. Select each line from left panel and check the “IND” checkbox in Legislations and click on “Save” button for each and every line after selecting IND legislation to save the changes.
Now, check the same invoice – 100012206INVBC000017 on the Sales Invoice screen, and click on post button.
As you can see, the invoice is getting posted successfully after clicking on Post button. Hence by selecting the IND checkbox in Automatic Journals for all the lines, error will be resolved.
