    We have already filed GSTR -1 for July ,
    now when we tried to file table 6A of GSTR-1 on 3rd Nov.17for the period of August then a error message was appeared on portal “GSTR1EX IS NOT FILED FOR PREVIOUS PERIOD”.
    Can you guide us to overcome said error

      Yes, it will show the error.
      you cannot file for July . But you can File for August.
      so if you want to file table 6A for November, kindly file August, Sept and Oct to file the same.
