Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to the Journal Entries view > Journal Entries subview.
  3. Find the respective Journal Entry for Supplier Invoice ABC (ABC means the Supplier Invoice ID).
  4. Under Details section, notice that the debit posting is being made to a Balance Sheet account (for example, a G/L Account of type Other liabilities), when the expectation is that the debit posting hits a Costs or expenses account, as per account determination setup. 


In Supplier Invoice ABC the Order Migrated Code field has been set to Not Migrated. This should only be set for purchase orders which are not present in the system and are not yet migrated from third party systems. In this case the value has been set for existing purchase orders in the system as well.


The Supplier Invoice ABC should be canceled and a new one created for the referred purchase order.

SAP development team is working to enhance the tooltip for Order Migrated Code field.
