Error: You must specify a [Transaction Code] for transactions in [FE Fund Name]. (RE Gift ID: [ID]) - when posting to the General Ledger

Users who post Appeal or Transaction Codes from the Raiser's Edge may experience this error when posting to the General Ledger after upgrading to patch 4 of the Raiser's Edge 7.94.

The following error messages may occur in the posting process: 
  • Error: Validation Failed
  • Error: An action cannot be completed because a component (The Financial Edge) is not responding.  Choose 'Switch To" to activate the component and correct the problem.
  • In the Batch Validation Report, the GL Credit Account Numbers are missing and shows Message (Out of Balance)
Note: If the Account in the Financial Edge has a default transaction code, some users may find that they are able to post, however the Journal Entry incorrectly reflects the Default transaction code.
