MAS90 Error 47 - Journal List Entry

MAS90 Error 47 - Journal List Entry

MAS90 Error 47 - Journal List Entry

I would like to delete an unposted entry in my journal list that is causing Error 47.  I can't open/edit the unposted entry.  Any guidance would be appreciated.


RE: MAS90 Error 47 - Journal List Entry

Could you please post the entire error message. Need at least the program name and line number. Also need to know what version of MAS you are on and if this is MAS90 or MAS200. Need to know which journal. Right now there is not enough information to go on.


RE: MAS90 Error 47 - Journal List Entry

Error #47:  Substring reference out of string
Program GLWDAC - Line 10080
File GL3CAP.SOA - GL3  G/L Journal Posting Detail File
Channel 2
Application - General Ledger (3.71)
L/M Level - 3.71

I have an un-posted journal entry that I can not access to edit or delete.  I've tried creating a new JE and use the arrows to back into this entry, but it only gives me the error.  I've tried to post the entry and again, I just get the error.  I've Goggled the error and posted it in a chat room – so far, no solutions. (There is a lot of info regarding this error on the web – but not many solutions without a "rebuild").

The problem is I can't get any other JEs to post – it blocks all entries behind it.

My audit is next week and I need to record some entries - YIKES!

Appreciate your assistance!

    files (Note: If there is a difference in the amount of record
    recoverable print the error log, however, if the number of

Note: If there were errors during Analyze and Relink Line Files then go back into General Journal entry and check the lines on the transactions, lines that were removed may need to fixed.

If the above does not fix the error then rename and manually reinitialize the GL2xxx.soa and GL3xxx.soa files. This should only be done by individuals with experience in the Sage MAS 90 utilities or with assistance from a Customer Support Specialist.

Note: Caution should be taken whenever File Analysis and Repair utilities are used. Always make a backup first. If necessary, seek the assistance of a qualified Sage Software business partner or Customer Support analyst.
