The user is receiving the below error message when attempting to publish an invoice.

Project status set to not allow postings.

Applies To

  • Sage 50 UK&I users publishing Purchase invoices with project codes.


This error is in reference to the Project status within Sage being set to closed and will not allow for additional transactions to be added to it.


In order to resolve this issue, there are a few things to take a look at:

  1. Within Sage, you will need to look at the status of the project and if it showing as Completed or Closed. This project will need to be either reopened, or no project can be selected on the invoice with AutoEntry.

  2. Check the remembered settings within your Supplier being used on the invoice.

  3. If there are any remembered settings there, please ensure that there is not a project reference saved within these settings.

  4. Remember: If a cost code is selected as a remembered setting, it requires that a project ref. is also selected.

  5. Now with the remembered settings, you will need to remove these from the supplier and save any changes.

Once the above has been completed, please unpublish the affected invoice, click on the eye icon/View button on the left, remove the Project Reference code and republish the invoice.

Please note: This error will not be removed immediately, once it is successfully published the error will clear from the invoice. Please allow for 10-15 minutes for the publishing to complete.
