Why are we receiving the following error: Cannot Create a Record in Header (AVA Header) in Microsoft Dynamics AX?


When attempting to invoice a sales order in AX 2012 we receive the error message: Cannot create a record in Header (AVA_Header).



Microsoft Dynamics AX


  • This is a number sequence issue:
    • Please check the sequence set up for AVA_Head and ensure it is numerical without any alpha segments.
    • The header id number can not be a duplicate of another instance you copied data from for AX.
