Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Find Invoice ID.
  4. Click View All.
  5. Go to the Document Flow tab.

No Journal Entry exists for the Invoice.


This is the expected behavior since the Invoice is a zero value Invoice. The System will not create a Journal Entry.

An accounting notification is created from SRM that will notify accounting that this posting has taken place.

You can see this with below steps:

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to the Source Documents view.
  3. Show Finished Source Documents.
  4. Find Invoice ID.
  5. Click Actions - View Business Transaction.

This is the Accounting Notification. However, because there was zero value, there was no need to create a Journal Entry because there was no effect on the Subledgers.


System works as expected.
