Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to work center General Ledger.
  2. Go to view Reports.
  3. Go to subview List.
  4. Find and open Accounts Receivable - Open Items report.
  5. Enter selection:
    • Journal Entry Type: 00079
    • Document Type: 1
  6. Click Apply.

Check Document Number ID from the migrated file, the Business Partner ID is XYZ while the expected one was ABC, the one showing in the file.

XYZ and ABC are example of Business Partner IDs.


When migrating Customers a Value Conversion file was used in Customer Migration activity.

This file contains the From/To logic that the system uses when migrating Open Items Receivable as well.

Hence when the ID ABC was entered in the migration file the system changed it to XYZ due to the From/To logic.


System is working as designed logic.
