About Changing a Batch's Status

All batches throughout the system are tracked in HQ Batch Control.

The information on this form is set up when you create a batch in any of the posting programs (e.g., AP Transaction Entry, GL Journal Transaction Entry, PR Timecards, etc.). However, you can edit the Status under certain circumstances.

As a batch goes through its various levels of processing, the system will assign a value in the Status field of the HQ Batch Control form. This value identifies where the batch is in the processing cycle. The different statuses assigned to a batch are described in Status.

You can manually change a batch’s status only if the status is less than 4, in which case you can change it only to 0 (open).
