Intercompany with Open Ledger Entries

Anyone know what the risk is in forcing assigment of Intercompany code to an existing customer with open Ledger Entries?

Currently functionality will not allow assigment of IC code to an existing customer. I would like to go around the validation of it's safe.

Here's the exact error message "You cannot change the content of the IC Partner Code because this customer has one or more open ledger entries". I just want to be able to assign an IC Partner code so that I can create Intercompany
documents.

I appreciate any input on this topic.

Thanks.
NC

    You can't assign a new value to ICP Code as long as there are open CL Entries for this Customer. Close all Ledger Entries first.
    Do you use IC module in any way?

    Just recently decided to make an existing customer a partner so that we can begin sell/purchase transactions.

    Being partners and doing intercompany transaction is not a decision you can turn on/off by entering a value to a field. There should be a clear situation, maybe described in a contract between the two companies. Or do you want to do it in a test database just for yourself?

    There are two possibilities for such a situation:
    1. Close all open Customer Ledger Entries for that Customer.
    2. Create a new Customer for the same company and block the old Customer for new Orders.

    Thanks a lot for all your help. After some thoughts, we decided to wait until beginnning of next year and create a new customer so that all transactions are established in the beginning with the new customer. That will keep it separate and easy for accounting.

    I did explain that it would be a problem if the transactions a mixed in.

    I think that's a good decision.
