Duplicate Journal Entry Numbers!?!

This subject published almost on all the GP blogs! Below are the reasons:

1.  Reversing journal entries use the same JE number

2.  Recurring journal entries (actually, recurring batches) repeat journal entry numbers with each recurrence

3.  If you post a journal entry to a closed year, GP uses the same JE number in the current year to close the activity to Retained Earnings.
