  • The DuplicateDocumentError is an error similar to DocStatusError
  • The difference is that the DuplicateDocumentError occurs of the same DocCode is being within a few seconds
  • Any longer and you will receive the DocStatusError
  • It is recommended that no doc code be sent until the invoice is committed
  • or waiting a few seconds and saving again to ensure the invoice is posted.
