Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Requests view.
  3. Search for invoice requests in To be Invoiced status.
  4. Edit the invoice request and go to the Items tab.
  5. In the Revenue Assignment tab a specific G/L Account is maintained.
  6. In the resulting Journal Entry, the revenue posting line does not post to the specified G/L account. 


As this customer invoice posting is linked to a Fixed Asset sale, the Fixed Asset Account Determination setting for Fixed Asset sale overwrites any manual Account Assignment made in the Customer Invoice.


To review the Fine Tune Setting:

  1. Access the Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination fine tune activity, either from the Business Configuration Overview or from the Activity List of the Implementation Project.
  2. Under Account Determination select Fixed Asset.
  3. Navigate to the Fixed Asset Sale /Scrapping tab.
  4. Find the Account Determination Group linked to the Fixed Asset's Fixed Asset class.
  5. The G/L Accounts assigned to this Account Determination Group in the Revenue for Sale columns are used for this Fixed Asset Sale transaction.
