Status This field represents the status of this AR item. O = open P = paid in full. If you wish to close an open invoice, you can change the status to "P" provided no payments have been applied to this invoice. When the record is saved, all amounts (invoice, misc. freight, distribution, etc.) will be changed to zero and register records (i.e. ARREG records) will be created. The date that will be posted to these ARREG records and ultimately the g/l will be the date in the REGISTER DATE field on the header tab. SALES and COMM records will also be generated to reflect this change if line items are present on the invoice and you have set-up the ACCT.CONTROL procedure to create SALES and/or COMM records from AR.E.
You cannot change the status to "O" on a paid invoice. To re-open the invoice, you must adjust the invoice amount plus the related amounts like freight, tax, etc. When the record is saved the status will be changed for you.
