You receive System Message 3011 when you try to release a Journal Transactions batch that was created by Project Allocator in Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 FP1


Consider the following scenario in Project Allocator and in General Ledger in Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 Feature Pack 1 (FP1):
  • You chenge the amounts to higher amounts in the Max Amount box in the Project Maximums Maintenance (PA.PMM.00) screen for the project ID.
  • You post one or more transactions to the project.
  • You run the Allocation Processor (PA.PRO.00) for the project ID.
  • You try to release the resulting General Ledger batch in the Journal Transactions (01.010.00) screen.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message: 

System Message 3011 - "Batch XXXXX is not in balance and not posted."

Additionally, you notice that when you run the Project Allocator process, the batch totals are incorrect for the resulting General Ledger batch. The batch shows a value of Balanced in the Status box. However, the batch totals are off by the Over Maximum calculation. And, you expect to be able to release and then post the General Ledger batch.
