The other invoice that is showing up still has an OUTSTANDING BALANCE...
probable due to the rounding error that is present in the current release.

The problem is, when rounding the taxes and invoice total, Dale was rounding
to 4 decimal places... in my case, that meant that I had an invoice that was
21.2966 instead of 21.30.... so that left an overpayment of .0034...
eventually that equals 1 cent which you would then see in the "balance"
field of their account... but the balance field only shows 2 decimal
places..... so until it reaches 1 cent..

AFAIK Dale has fixed the rounding on the release he is now working on....
What I have been doing is after each run of invoices, and prior to payments
being posted, I run a script that looks for the differences and changes

But in any event, do not void the invoice, as it probably already has a
payment posted to it.....

I am not sure what version Dale implemented "Show Last Only", but to avoid
seeing the other invoices, check "Show Unpaid Only" AND "Show Last Only"....
