Sage Intacct sync error: The amount cannot be updated on the Bill because of the current approval mode set

Why the sync error occurs

This error occurs when you edit a bill in Sage Intacct, but the bill has already been partially or fully-approved in Key CashFlow℠. Changes are not allowed after a bill is approved is the default setting in Key CashFlow.

  • If you haven't updated the default approval workflow setting of Changes are not allowed, then partially-approved or fully-approved bills edited in Sage Intacct will trigger this error.
  • If it's set to Allowed until every approver has approved, then fully-approved bills edited in Sage Intacct will trigger this error.
