  4. No document found or selected


All of the Free selections fields (Selection 1,2, 3 and 4) are connected to each other via an AND link (table data selection). This means that a document is searched which has the document number 1000000001 and also the document numbers 1000000002, 1000000003 and 1000000004. The result of this selection is that no document can be found or selected for the payment run.


Each database field can be entered only once in the free selection. That means that if you want to use document number i.e, it can only be inserted once in the Free Selection field. You can insert multiple documents in that selection.


Then in the other Free selection fields you can use Document date, Fiscal year, etc...
