Unlock a Batch

With the Unlock a Batch function, you can unlock a batch that was previously locked, so that transactions can be posted to it and the 'total amount' fields can be edited.

Upon accessing this function, you will first need to enter a batch number.

Data Field Information
Prompt Response Req Len
Batch Number

Type the code you want or click the magnifying glass to search a list of every 'unlocked' batch. You can also create a new batch by typing in a batch number that does not exist and you will be asked if you want to create it.

Default Last Batch

If you want the last batch number (used by the current user, in the current database, for the current date) to default, select this check box.

If you select this check box while in any function in the system that contains a Batch Number field and then you access a different function that contains a Batch Number field, the Batch Number field will automatically default the last batch number used.

If the batch number does not exist, a message stating, 'This batch number does not exist.' will display.  If the batch is already unlocked, a message stating, 'This batch number is already unlocked.' will display. If a valid batch number is entered, the detailed batch information will display. It is for informational purposes only and cannot be changed. To unlock the batch, click Unlock. If you want this batch to remain locked, click Cancel.
