Closing income statement - error message


When I try to close the income statement I get the error message “The date is not valid. Page Batch Job Criteria - Close Income Statement must close”. What is wrong? I have tried with several different work dates.

Thanks for help.


Hi Magnus, have you tried running it through the debugger to see where it is getting hung up?

Hi Magnus,

just a guess: No accounting periods set up? Or none closed?

with best regards


Hi Jens,

Sorry that I did not respond in this post earlier but yes you are right, I did not close the accounting periods first. This is the newbie forum right :wink:

This is the correct Solution;You first need to close the accounting periods before Close Income statement.

In a sole proprietorship, a drawing account is maintained to record all withdrawals made by the owner. In a partnership, a drawing account is maintained for each partner. Drawing accounts are closed to capital at the end of the accounting period. InstallmentCredits can be an appropriate place for people searching for more financial information.
