When posting a journal you get "Error10: Showing unbalanced intercompany journal" and the intercompany lines are not posted. This is because you have switched intercompany balancing on. You have setup intercompany defaults in the setup intercompany to error when it cannot be balanced and the intercompany lines cannot be made to balance by intercompany balancing. This can happen at an apparently simple level where there is a two way split that is not a direct one for one balance

Eg  Dr company 10        150 
     Cr company 20                  100 
     Cr company 30                    50

The program cannot know that the 150 relates to the other two companies.

Sometimes you find you cannot edit the journal to correct it. This is due to 1 or more of the following circumstances

1. You have the source 'Payables' in setup > journal > source frozen
2. You have Budgetary control set on for this set of books and funds were reserved in the subledger
