Error message "Please setup biller first" when billing

Error message:   Please setup biller first

This message applies if you are using Microsoft Dynamics GP project accounting to perform billing.
This is the error I receive when I try to go into Billing Entry. I’m using the path of Transaction-Project-Billing-Billing Entry.

Answer:

Go to Setup-Project-Billing, and make sure you have something populated in the Next Document Number field for Billing. If this is blank, you will receive this error.

Also make sure that the number has leading zeros to increment. Here is an example: BILL0000678. If you have BILL999 it will give you this error because it will not have a place holder to increment through
