3081658 - Journal Entry Missing for Goods and Service Receipt


You create a goods and service receipt ABC for a purchase order and notice that no journal entry was created for the document (ABC represents the goods and service receipt ID).


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the Goods and Services Receipts work center go to the Receipts and Returns view.
  2. Select All Documents and find goods and service receipts ABC.
  3. Press Edit. 
  4. Go to the Document Flow tab.
  5. You'll notice that no Journal Entry icon/link appears for the goods and service confirmation


If no Business Transaction (For Accounting) appears for the document indicating an accounting relevant issue it is likely that the line item amount of goods receipt ABC exceeds 100 items.


The maximum number of line items to be processed in one goods and service receipt is 100. For any line item number higher than 100 SAP Business ByDesign cannot ensure proper processing of all items between the Supplier Relationship Management and Finance application.

With a line item number greater than 100 there is no guarantee that the documents can be generated correctly. 100 line items is the highest number SAP Business ByDesign can process without compromising all the involved functionalities.
