You create a sales transaction, such as a point-of-sales transaction or a customer invoice with zero value. In the resulting posting you notice a zero debit entry on a difference account used for exchange rate differences.

Reproducing the Issue
- Access the journal entry of the point-of-sales-transaction/customer invoice, either through the Source Documents view or through the Journal Entries view of the General Ledger.
- The credit line is posting, as expected to a revenue account in the sales ledger.
- However, the debit line is posting to a difference account that is used for exchange rate differences.
In case of a zero value sales transaction (customer invoice or point-of sales transaction) there is no due item on the account receivable ledger created. The sales transaction is therefore offset against the miscellaneous ledger. The system logic here is to derive a G/L account defined for foreign currency rounding differences in the cash ledger when no due item is created.
