You run the reclassification for payables, but the posting amount of one the G/L account is not the balance in report Account Payable - Open Items.


SAP Business Bydesign

Reproducing the Issue

You set up the reclassification rule to reclassify the credit balance from one G/L account of account payables.

And you execute the reclassification. However, the reclassified amount is different from the credit balance of this G/L account in report Account Payable - Open Items.


Here are tips of the reclassification design in ByDesign, which helps to understand the result of reclassification run.

  • Down payments are not considered in reclassification run.
  • Supplier accounts with zero balance are not considered in reclassification run, even though there is balance of the specific G/L account.
  • Reclassification only considers open items with future due date, compared to the execution date. For example, we execute the reclassification on 09/19/2022, for period 006 2022. The open items with Net Due Date earlier than 09/19/2022 are not considered. It is stated in KBA 2805247 - Reclassification of Receivables Shows Wrong Debit Balance already.
