Advances in Travel Management

Dear Experts,

I have come across a scenario in which client wants to edit the advances once entered by employee (end user in portal) after arriving at a certain advance amount for certain cases.

However as per the requirement I noticed that the advances once entered in an expense report cannot be edited. i.e. expense report number once generated the advance row is getting non-editable.

Is there any configuration setting which I had missed or this is standard behavior of SAP.

Please suggest.

    It is a standard behavior 😊 The standard process to modify an advance line is to input a new line with the opposite value to "cancel" the amount and then enter your new value.

    i.e : you want to edit a 10$ advance, you will input -10$ and then enter your new value on a third line.

    • Hello Mathieu,

      Thanks for your reply 😊

      I understand that once advances are posted it should not be edited, and an offset amount should be entered as you described but in cases where an expense report(advance request) is saved in draft mode it should be editable.
