Dump is thrown while trying to post a Manual VAT Entry.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Tax Management work center.
  2. Go to the VAT Entries view.
  3. Find and open the respective Manual Tax Entry.
  4. Click Post.
  5. Dump is thrown.


The tax code used has been created via customization (PDI). The Due Category has been defined as 2 - Receivable, but the Direction Indicator has been set as 1 - Outgoing.

Hence, while clicking Post, system triggers a backend dump with error 'Receivables Payables Entry AAA: Transaction amount does not balance to zero'. (AAA means the Manual Tax Entry ID).

Remark: the error message is only available in system backend, hence only available for SAP Support to check.


Fix the configuration for the respective tax code in the PDI solution.
