Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the app 'Clear Incoming Payments'.
  2. Provide the customer number and company code details and click on 'GO'.
  3. Double click on a journal entry and click on 'Select More' option and select 'Normal open items', 'payments', 'Special G/L Transactions'.
  4. In open items few items are locked, click on 'clear all' icon and the error "Document &&&& XXXXXXXXXX is locked by YYYYY" occurs.


The apps used for clearing payments ("Clear Incoming payments") have "Save without posting" functionality and it can be used to save the items to be cleared without posting them and process the clearing at any time later. With this option, the payment which is in process by another user will be in locked status.


Payments in the worklist tab also contains payments that are assigned to other users. If payment is assigned to another user, open the "All Payments" tab and remove the user as the processor by clicking 'x'. The payment then becomes available to everyone for clearing.
