Sage 100 – “Invoice Already Being Paid” ARWAR4 Utility


Mike, We currently own Sage 100. We were doing Accounts Receivable Cash Receipts with Credit Card entry and the system completely hung up and we had to do Workstation complete reboot. The Credit Card company did not receive payment. All the invoices that we are trying to pay show as open invoices in Customer Maintenance, when we try to pay them again through Accounts Receivable Cash Receipts with Credit Card entry the system gives error “Invoice Already Being Paid” and the invoices do not show up on the invoice selection screen. What should we do?

NOTE: We advise that you consult with your certified Sage 100 ERP consultant before making any changes to your Sage 100  system. If you don’t currently work with a Sage 100 consultant, contact us, call 760-618-1395 or email us at and we are available to help.
