NAV 2009 SP1 - "The tax document could not be found" error


You are doing a batch import process which creates a line in the Admin Console with a prefix of "INV," but when posting, NAV cannot find the transaction and returns the error, "The tax document could not be found."


 NAV 2009 SP1


  • The solution to fix your current batch problem:
    • Turn off tax calculation in the config page. Make sure no one else is posting.
    • Run your posting batch process. This should not do a tax calc while posting
    • Log in to admin console and Commit the Uncommitted transactions that correlate with the invoices in NAV
  • The solution for future batches:
    • When running batch import, change code to not calculate tax.
    • Then run your batch post process, which will do the tax call
    • Review transactions in admin console and make sure they correlate to NAV
    • Test this first before moving to your live database.
