I'm receiving an error message saying "the total amount must be [unit price]" when trying to assign an invoice to multiple budgets

  • Error message saying "the total amount must be [Unit Price]" appears when trying to assign a dollar amount from budgets/funds in an invoice
Applies to
  • WorldShare Acquisitions

This error occurs if you allocate an order item to multiple funds by amount, but the sum of the amounts you entered does not match the unit price. If the unit price shown in the error message is correct, edit your allocated amounts so they add up to the correct number. If you need to edit the unit price, follow these steps:

  1. In the Unit Price column of the invoice, edit the amount to match the correct price
  2. Re-allocate your budget funds, making sure that the amount taken from those funds matches the unit price.
