Typical Causes of JD Edwards Integrity Issues
There are many reasons why integrity issues can arise within JD Edwards. See below for the most common.
- Power outages or interruptions – causing a temporary stoppage of the process.
- User interventions / job cancellations / errors – a user starts the process and then cancels it, causing errors.
- System failures – time outs, program failures, etccausing errors.
- Out-of-Balance batches – a batch was posted out-of-balance in error. (The batch override setting was changed to allow the batch to post out-of-balance).
- Partial postings – a batch of journal entries is partially posted due to a computer failure or power failure.
- Incorrect company numbers – the company was changed on a business unit record but the relevant tables were not updated.
- Missing Batch headers – transaction entries do not have batch headers and the batch cannot be posted.
- Invalid accounts – an unposted batch contains an invalid account and the batch cannot be posted.
- Incorrect editing codes – a manual journal entry was entered to an intercompany account. (Intercompany accounts should be assigned a posting edit code “M” to allow machine generated entries only ()).
- Single-threaded job queues – ensure that you post transactions using a single-threaded job queue. (It can cause issues if multiple applications access a record simultaneously).

There are two things that need to happen during the month to ensure your files in the general ledger and subledger systems are in balance. The first is to make sure all general ledger transaction files are posted, both in the GL and the subsystem. The second is to make sure that the companies within the trial balance file are balanced. It is recommended to run JD Edwards integrity reports or interactive applications throughout the month to catch any errors before month end, giving you more time to analyze errors and to determine the required corrections.
If you have the financials set up correctly, the general ledger file and trial balance should stay in sync and in balance, allowing you to complete efficient, error-free month end closes.
