Error - "Transaction date not within Pay Period Date Range" occurs on the Build Payroll Checks report.


This error appears when Transaction Dates do not coincide with the Pay Period Dates in the Build Check window.

To see the Transaction Date (Date From and Date To) you can click the Show Details button, after you have chosen your transaction on the Transaction Entry window. (Transaction | Payroll | Transaction Entry)

This date must be within the date range (Pay Period From and To date fields) from the Build Checks window. If your Transaction Date is not between the Pay Period Dates then you will get the error.

If you have verified all dates and they are correct, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base to remove the payroll activity files that could also cause the error message:
