Intacct Sync Error: The amount cannot be updated on the Bill because of the current approval mode set

Why the Sync Error occurs

This error occurs when a bill is edited in Intacct, but has already been partially- or fully-approved in PayMaker. "Changes are not allowed" after a bill is approved is the default setting in PayMaker.

-If the default approval workflow setting of "Changes are not allowed" has not been updated, then partially-approved or fully-approved bills edited in Intacct will trigger this error.

  • If it is set to "Allowed until every approver has approved," then fully-approved bills edited in Intacct will trigger this error.
