Explanation

A MultiDocument transaction involves more than two companies. Most tax authorities recognize only transactions between two companies (a seller and a buyer). This means that a multi-company transaction must be reported as more than one transaction.

When any part of a MultiDocument transaction has been reported to a tax authority, the MultiDocument transaction can no longer be modified. This error message tells you that part of your MultiDocument transaction has been locked; you must now treat each separate seller/buyer transaction individually.
