Goal

we created a manual GL journal entry with an Accounting date 1st of February, 2018; and the system assigned the document sequence number 20 to it.
Than, we created another manual GL journal entry with an Accounting date of the 30th of January, 2018 (so prior to the first one).
The system assigned the document sequence number 21 to it.
So, GL dates and document sequences are not consistent.
An Italian fiscal requirement is that if you use a specific GL date for a manual GL journal entry (and you assign a document sequence number to it), than you cannot assign the following document sequence number to a manual GL journal entry with a GL date that is prior to the last used.

The issue is because the system only assigns GL document sequences while posting manual GL journal entries, instead of assigning the document sequence number while creating the journal entry.
