    Error posting invoice to budget: "Budget creation failure - max over expenditure <budget>"


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21, 22
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care




    The error "Budget creation failure - max over expenditure <budget>" occurs in trying to post an invoice to the budget ELECTRONIC-2016.



    Though budget ELECTRONIC-2016 shows an "Initial allocation" amount of $3,352,226, its "Allocated" amount is zero.  As can be seen in the acq-16 report, ELECTRONIC-2016 is a parent budget for various child budgets.  These child budgets *do* have "Allocated" amounts.
    The invoice needs to be posted to one of the child budgets rather than the ELECTRONIC-2016 itself.
