Updated: July 18, 2012

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

A correction note is a document that you can use to notify a vendor about errors in the document header of a purchase document. For example, a vendor may issue a sales document that has an incorrect address or value-added tax (VAT) identification number. You can accept and post the document as a purchase invoice, and then issue a correction note to the vendor later. The correction note should describe the error and provide the correct data.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Inquiries > Journals > Invoice journal. Select the invoice that contains incorrect data, and then click Create correction notes..

  2. In the Correction notes form, in the Document date field, enter the transaction date. If you do not enter a date, the current date is used for the posting date.

  3. In the Correction note field, enter a unique identification number for the correction note.


    You can generate correction note numbers automatically by setting up a number sequence code for correction note references. Set up number sequences in the Accounts payable parameters form.

  4. On the Details tab, in the Original text field, enter the text from the original document that you are correcting.

  5. In the Corrected text field, enter the correct text.

  6. Click Post to post the document.

  7. Click Print to print the report.
