Steps to ensure that “Auto-numbered” forms work correctly in Internet Explorer 7

It has been discovered that when creating multiple Journal Entries, that the auto-numbering feature may not work correctly. If a user is creating Journal Entries and clicks “Reset Form” after the first form is complete, the next form does have the correct number. Hitting “Reset Form” after the second form is complete, may cause the auto-numbering feature to reuse the second number. This duplicate problem may cause confusion when posting the Journal Entries to the General Ledger. This is happening in Internet Explorer 7 and not in Firefox.

A setting in Internet Explorer 7 can cause “Auto-numbered” forms to reuse previously used numbers. Please follow these instructions to ensure that Internet Explorer 7 has the proper settings when you use “Auto-numbered” forms.
