What should I do if Batch address validation in Netsuite is stuck?


I've ran the batch address validation script for Avatax within Netsuite and it has gone back and forth between 6% and 20% for the last 24 hours.




  • The best option here is to create multiple batches where each batch will not have large number of addresses. 
  • Before creating a new batch make sure to delete old batch which was stuck.
    • To delete batch you have to make the batch progress 100% then try deleting
  • Log into NetSuite as an administrator
  • Go to Customization > List > Records & Fields > Record Types
    • Click "List" to the left of this line
    • Click "Edit" on the stalled batch
      • Change "Batch Status" to 5
      • Change "Batch Progress" to 100%
      • Click Save.
  • Create a new batch with a smaller sub set of data.
  • Avalara support has no access to the Netsuite back end so you'll need to contact Netsuite or your reseller to have them do this.
  • If you afterwards still have issues with the batch being stuck and you've confirmed you're on the latest version of the Avatax bundle submit a cast to Avalara Support.
