You have allocated Payment to G/L Account in Payment Allocation and have maintained Payer/Payee field. However, you are unable to see Payer/Payee details in the Payment Allocation Journal Entry.
SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Payment Management work center.
- Go to the Payment Allocation view.
- Show All Payment Allocations and find the respective Payment Allocation.
- Go to Allocation to G/L Account tab.
You could see that the G/L Account and Payer/Payee details are maintained and choose post.
The Journal Entry which gets created does not show Payer/Payee details (for example, Partner Company ID and Partner Company Name).
The Payer/Payee entered in the payment allocation is a partner company, hence you expect the system to derive the data in the journal entry. However the G/L Account entered is a balance sheet account (for example, of G/L Account Type OASSET - Other assets). For balance sheet accounts they system only derive the partner company if the G/L Account is open item managed.
The system behaves as expected here.
To have the Partner Company entered in Payer/Payee field in the payment allocation derived in the journal entry, the G/L Account entered along with it should not be a balance sheet account, OR, in case of a balance sheet account, it must be open item managed (Open Item Management checkbox flagged in Chart of Accounts).
