Error received when transferring transaction to PT using DDE

Error received when transferring transaction to PT using DDE

Error received when transferring transaction to PT using DDE

(OP)
Error returned when using dde to interface my program with peachtree.  sending a transaction for a customer in PT.
Error is this:

Topic:  PTCOMPAN
Received:  DDDE_INITIATE:  PTCOMPAN.
 REPLIED:  DDE_ACK:  PTCOMPAN

 REPLIED:  DDE_ACK:  ok

 REPLIED:  DDE_ACK:  ok
RECEIVED:  DDE_POKE:  file=salesjournal,SAVE
 REPLIED:  DDE_ACK:  Cannot save when out of balance.

Here is the kicker.  If I go into PT and remove a single character from the customer name field the transaction will go over.  If I then max out the same field with numbers (39 character max.)It will process the transaction.  What might be wrong???

Thank you in advance!!
