I have running down payment in sd. I have the down payment request in SD with the special G/L indicator F but when I generate the down payment in FI I use a a special G/L indicator different to "A".

When I generate the close invoice in SD the system don`t create the item of "down payment settlement" with the value of the down payment.

¿Is this possible to use a special G/L indicator different to "A"?

    Hi Jose

    The downpayment processing in SD has a very specific design.

    These notes describe the details.

    213852 Analysis of down payment processing with FI

    213567 Analysis of the down payments in SD

    213526 Customizing of down payment processing SD/FI

    213444 Advice note, down payment processing SD/FI

    You MUST use the special indicator A as described from
    transaction F-29 because posting via F-29 guarantees the field that link the
    down payment to SD (VBEL2 and POSN2) are correctly filled in the reference FI tables (BSAD & BSID)

    You can check this dependence in VF01 when you are creating a real invoice after
    the down payment has been cleared. The function module SD_DOWNPAYMENT_READ will
    pick up the cleared downpayment if it has been posted correctly and cleared. If
    it is posted in any other way or transaction the link to the reference SD
    document is lost (VBEL2 and POSN2) and the clearing item will not be brought into the new billing document as you have described above.

    I hope this helps further

    Kind regards
