Post#39: Error On Settlement due to Remit Address

While trying to settle vendor open transactions in AX 2012 R3, I came across the below error:

Error: The remittance address on the selected transaction line does not match the remittance address on the selected payment journal line. Change one of the address to mark the lines for settlement.

Remit address is based on the vendor master defined primary address unless there is a specific remit type address mentioned.

Below is a list of the available types of addresses and their purpose. MS site reference https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamicsax-2012/appuser-itpro/set-up-address-and-contact-information-purposes :

PurposeDescription
InvoiceThe address to which you send invoices.
DeliveryThe address to which products are delivered.
SWIFTThe address that is used for money transfers by international banks.
PaymentThe address to which you send payments.
ServiceThe address that is used for service calls.
HomeThe address that is used for the party’s home.
OtherThe address that is used for another type of location that is not defined in this list.
BusinessThe address that is used for the party’s business.
RemitToThe address to which you send the payment when a check is issued to a vendor.
Third party shippingThe address that is used when the customer is billed for freight by a shipping carrier.
StatementThe address that is used when internal or external statements are generated, or when customer statements are exported to Microsoft Excel by using the Collections form.
Fixed assetThe address that is used for a fixed asset.
One timeAn address that is used only one time, and that does not have to be stored with the party record.

You can mark an address as one time only when you are adding an address in a transaction, such as a sales order.

On checking both the payment and invoice details I found that they both had different “remit to” addresses. They both must match, and so must have been a user input error.

To solve the issue I went to the open transactions settlement window and selected the payment voucher and changed the “remittance location” drop down field on the “remittance” tab. This in turn changed the address memo text box below. Once it matched the invoice I wanted to settle I could match both of them for settlement.

That is all folks. Keep on Daxing…
