Sometimes my life decisions are terrible. Not today, though. My life decisions right now are hilarious.
When I’m not dazzling others on the stage (heheheh), I work in project accounting. Part of my job entails me writing checks for our subcontractors. I have to create batches for a specific check run, and manually print a few sheets before I can actually write those checks.
For whatever reason, lately our accounting program, Coins, has been acting a fool. Coins will not let me print my batches, saying checks haven’t been selected. Anyway, my supervisor and I have been in contact with the help-desk person, and I was advised to stop using the same batch name (my name). Follow?
Well, that was the help desk person’s first mistake.
Yesterday’s batch names- can you guess which ones are mine?
I, like Erin, tried to print the edit list and got the same error. I did a show and a print on the batch to ensure there were items there. Once I did that, I was able to print the edit list to the screen so that it is now out there and you can reprint it from AP > Module Utilities > 80. Reprint Posting/Purge Reports Menu > 4. Check Edit List Report for review – it is process 286456:
(And last week’s batch names:)
I see that erb had other batches since 4/18:

That email was cc’d to my real boss, the CFO.
I’ve been laughing at my desk all morning.
