2805247 - Reclassification of Receivables Shows Wrong Debit Balance


  • You are doing a Reclassification Run of Receivables. You note that some Customer Invoices have a Debit Balance of 12-60 months.
  • You expect that these Customer Invoices have a Debit Balance of 0-12 months. The period in which the Reclassification Run has been done is in between the 0-12 months range from Customer Invoice Creation Date to the period for which the Reclassification Run is valid.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Receivables Work Center - Reclassification of Receivables View.
  2. Show all Reclassification of Receivables Runs, highlight Run ID 'XXX' (where XXX is the Reclassification run ID).
  3. Click on Log Result.
  4. Press the tab "Processed Successfully".

You can see a Customer Invoice 'ABC' (where ABC is the Customer Invoice ID) which has a Debit Balance of 12-60 months. You expect a Debit Balance of 0-12 months.

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing Work Center - Invoice Documents View.
  2. Show all Invoice Documents and find Customer Invoice ABC.
  3. Press Edit.
  4. You can see that the Invoice Date is for example 31.05.2018.

This Invoice Date is in between the 12 months range from the Invoice Date to the Period of the Reclassification Run of Receivables (12.2018). You expect that the Debit Balance is 0-12 months in the Reclassification Run of Receivables.


The Reclassification Run of Receivables does not consider the period 12.2018 in which the Reclassification Run has been done. It considers the Reclassification Run date itself which has been done for example on 14.06.2019 for the period 12.2018. As the date 14.06.2019 is more than a year earlier than the Invoice Creation date, that is why the Debit Balance is between 12-60 months and not between 0-12 months. This has been tested and confirmed in SAP internal IRA test systems.


The system behaves correctly.
