3406386 - WIP Clearing Reversal Run generates the Journal Entry by posting to different G/L Account.

Symptom

For the Production Lot ABC ('ABC' refers to Production Lot ID), you have have executed the WIP Clearing Run XXX ('XXX' refers to WIP Clearing Run ID) and the Journal Entry YYY ('YYY' refers to Journal Entry ID) for the amount 500 MXN.

The G/L accounts in the Journal Entry are: (Original WIP Clearing)
100001 - 'WIP Credit' - 500 MXN
100002 - 'Stock Debit' - 500 MXN

Now you have reversed the Production lot ABC and executed the WIP Clearing Run ZZZ again as the reversal ID.('ZZZ' refers to Reversal WIP Clearing Run ID).
But now the G/L accounts in the Journal Entry is: (Reversal WIP Clearing)
100001 - 'WIP Debit'  - 500 MXN
100003 - 'Production price Variance Credit' - 500 MXN (Note: Posted to different G/L account ID in Journal Entry)

For the Reversal WIP Clearing Journal Entry, the G/L accounts postings should be same as the original WIP Clearing, instead it is posted to different G/L account as mentioned in the above example. 

Environment

SAP Business By Design.

Reproducing the Issue

1) Go to Inventory Valuation work center.

2) Go to WIP Clearing sub view.

3) Filter it with *All clearing runs*, give the WIP Clearing Run XXX ('XXX' refers to WIP Clearing run ID).

4) Also search for Reversal WIP Clearing Run ZZZ ('ZZZ' refers to Reversal WIP Clearing run ID).

5) The G/L accounts posting of the respective Journal Entries should be the same as the 1st WIP Clearing Run 'XXX', But it is different in Reversal WIP Clearing Run 'ZZZ'.

Cause

Production lot ABC might not have any confirmed FG qty, all Production confirmations are reversed and as on the latest WIP clearing run you don't have any available stock which is causing the variance entries.  

For Example,

At 01.01.9999 first Production confirmations were posted and on 08.01.9999 WIP clearing run 'XXX' executed. At the time this WIP stock was available and the Journal Entry YYY got posted as mentioned below.

WIP Credit
Stock Debit

On 20.01.9999 if you check, all the Production confirmations got reversed including goods receipt from stock. After these reversals FG stock became Zero. Again on 22.01.9999 WIP Clearing Run ZZZ got executed.
Journal Entry got posted as well as below mentioned view.

WIP Debit
Production price Variance Credit (As there is no stock available at the time of WIP clearing, it is posting to production price variance).

 

Resolution

As we don't have exact WIP Clearing Reversal Run, the above entries are expected as standard behavior of the system.  

For more clarity, please go through the production lot line items reports.
