I'm receiving an error that says “There is another AP payment cycle in progress” when trying to Print Checks. What does that mean and how do I fix this?

When this error message appears when trying to create a check batch, this means there is currently already a check batch in process. To fix this:

  1. Navigate to the AP Check Posting/Printing Log on the Accounts Payable homepage.
  2. Review the Check Batches and view if there are any that do not have a Disposition Code. Those without a Disposition Code are ’in progress” which is causing the error message.

To start a new Check Batch, you need to add a Disposition Code to the current Check Batch that is in progress. The codes that can be used are either:

  • Post Checks
  • Undo Checks
