Some customers may receive a pop up message not allowing them to open a Closed batch when the deposit date is set for a prior date even if they have the BatchReopen permission.

Open TaxAdmin and go to control information 4.  Edit and save boolAllowPastDepDate: to be 1.  

Now when the users with the BatchReopen permission go to open the closed batch they will receive a warning message saying that it is ill advised to open a closed batch and the user can continue through to open the batch.
