What happens if no allocations are done?
* The Open Item Statements won't print correct.
* If no allocations are done on an account then the Aging on the account will probably be incorrect. For example, an Invoice for goods bought in April is paid in May. If the payment is not allocated to the invoice then the aging will show as the amount outstanding in April and a credit in May. Auto allocations can solve this problem as long as you take into consideration that it won't always be 100 % correct because SI+ will just allocate it against the oldest invoices. This won't always be correct especially where credit notes are involved.
