Why Did I Get a Doc Status Invalid upon Import?


When trying to calculate tax, an error "Doc Status Invalid" appears, preventing transactions from committing to the Admin Console.




  • Doc Status Invalid indicates that the transaction is already in the Admin Console.
    • If the invoices in the Admin Console are correct you don't have to worry about the error
    • If you're trying to adjust an existing document, change the process code to a 4 and re-import the file. This allows for an override of the existing documents.
  • If you're entering a transaction with multiple lines, make sure all lines are grouped together sequentially, before moving on to another DocCode.
