Error message re Date entered

I am getting the following error message:
"The date you have entered is after the current date and may be in error"
The date I am entering IS the current date. I have checked the computer date and it is correct and the date showing on the lower RH Tool Bar is also showing as correct.
Can someone help as it's driving me nuts

Sorry - posted this to the incorrect section. It's not a new idea but would like SOME idea as to what may be the problem Smiley Happy

Re: Error message re Date entered

Hi @Chris_H, this message appears when a transaction window has been open >1 day. To fix it, close the window, or possibly the whole app, and try again.

Re: Error message re Date entered



This error only occurs in the Classic range of programs not in the AccountRight live products and is caused because the Classic MYOB only recognises the date it is turned on. So if you turn it on Monday and leave it till Thursday it still thinks it is Monday. The Account Right Live because it is live knows when the dates change. Just closing or opening the window won't fis it.

To fix it so you don't get the error message either upgrade to the AccountRight Live or make sure you open and close the program daily.
