3474153 - Posting to accounting blocked in case of reversal


Customer is facing an issue during releasing a reversal document to accounting, error message ‘Incorrect document number: xx*. Select document number between 0090* and 0099*’ is coming up.

Customer doesn’t understand why they would have to choose a different number range interval. For some cancellations the release to accounting was already successful with the configuration in place.

Reverse Document Type is only taken into consideration if ‘real reversal’ is successful. Otherwise, we are creating an inverse journal entry with document type (not reversal document type). If document type and reversal document type are assigned to different number range intervals this can lead to the described issue.


Customer must make sure that for all Billing Types used for cancelling on SD side the document type in ‘Flexible Billing Document Posting’ is equal to the reverse document type.
