Adagio Tip of the Month: Check Payments Message

Aug 11, 2021

Question: We recently received this message on a check run:

“The following check payments were changed to avoid overpayment and/or to respect recent changes in document status and payment control variables.”

What does this mean is happening?

Answer: That message would appear if something changed in the invoice status or payment amount after a pre-check register was generated but before the checks were printed (or EFT created). For example, if you printed the pre-check register report to create the group of invoices to pay, and then put one of those invoices on Hold. Or, if you set the Maximum Payment of an invoice to something less than what is currently set to be paid.

This is a new message for Payables 9.3B. The message indicates to re-print the Pre-Check Register report to regenerate the payment list.
