Reproducing the Issue

  1. In SSCUI  Set Up All Company Codes for Payment Transactions  101293
    Example in Section
    Vendors
    Sp. G/L transactions to be paid  AF
    (Special G/L Indicator A= Downpayment
    Special G/L Indicator F= Down Payment Requests)
  2. In App Manage Supplier Down Payment Requests (app ID F1688) create down payment request.
  3. Post Down payment in app Manage automatic payments  (app ID F0770)
  4. Create Supplier invoice in app Create Supplier invoice (app ID F0859)
  5. In app Manage Automatic Payments enter Down Payment and Supplier Invoice 

Cause

  • The payment program always sets the payment block 'A', when creating down payments using down payment requests when in customizing Set Up All Company Codes for Payment Transactions Special G/L Indicator A= Downpayment is included in addition to F. 

  • The system will not automatically clear down payments in the next payment run.

Resolution

If the special G/L indicator for down payments example A is not entered as a special G/L indicator that is to be paid in Customizing Set Up All Company Codes for Payment Transactions, the payment program usually does not take the down payments into account, only the supplier Invoice. In this case in customizing Set Up All Company Codes for Payment Transactions Sp. G/L transactions to be paid is F only for Vendor/Supplier 

In this case, the payment block is not required.  The setting of the payment block is therefore adjusted to the program logic for manual posting

See Test Script Accounts Payable (‏J60‏)  and Accounts Receivable (‏J59‏)  for steps on down Payments process including  

Clear open items.
