SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Payment Management work center.
- Go to the Payment Allocation view.
- Open the allocation ID AAA (AAA means the payment allocation ID).
- Click Post
- Error is displayed:
'Allocation to cust./supplier and GL only possible for bank statement item'
The allocation ID AAA does not have Preceding Document Type Bank Statement (for example, it could be Incoming Check, Manual Payment, Payment Advice, etc) and you have split the allocated amount between Customer/Supplier and G/L Account(s).
The split of allocated amount to Customer/Supplier and G/L Account(s) is not allowed for any other source documents other than bank statements.
The system behaves as designed here.
