  3. Select the row of Run ID AAA (AAA means the VAT Return Run ID).
  4. Open the concerned Application Log ID, which has Overall Status in red.
  5. Go to Results tab.

Notice the error message:

The above error message will be followed by one or more error message(s) as:

You have executed the VAT Return Run for a past period (for example, from 01.01.2017 to 01.02.2017) and left the Posting Date field blank.

When you execute a VAT Return Run for a past period you should explicitly enter a Posting Date for which the books are opened.


While creating a VAT Return Run, in the Control Parameter section you should enter a Posting Date which falls in an open accounting period.
