AX2012 Configure Account Structure

Got an error a few days back saying: “Account number for transaction type Vendor balance does not exist.” when trying to post a vendor invoice register journal.

Checked vendor posting profile and everything looks ok.
Eventually it was found that the DimensionDefaultingService::ServiceCreateLedgerDimension method doesn’t know how to return a proper LedgerDimensionAccount record because my vendor summary account has no account structure defined for it.
(Well, some sort of msg telling me exactly that would’ve help…)

So next time when you see an error related to account number missing,there’s now one more thing to look for.

Happy DAXing~
