Distribution Rules on G/L Account type Expense not relate to Journal Entry

Hi experts,

Did anyone know why assign distribution rules on Incoming Payment not copied automatically to Journal Entries, even I use G/L Account type Expenditure on Incoming Payment?

I use SAP 9 PL 11.

G/L Account type Expenditure on payment type Credit Card:

Distribution Rules assigned to Incoming Payment:

But those Distribution Rules not copied / relate to Journal Entries:

I already check notes 1085205 it is mention about G/L Account must defined as Sales or Expenditure, on Sales or Purchasing docs. No mention anything about Payment documents.

And also already check:

If I setup default Distribution Rules on that G/L Account, it works.... but customer wants to assign dist. rules specifically for each warehouse which means they have to update each Journal Entry to the right one. Considering number of transaction each day it is not the proper solution I guess...

I wonder if it is system's behavior to ignore auto-copy Distribution Rules as long as document types are not Sales or Purchasing. If so then anyone could assist me the objective of assign Dist. rules on payment documents?

Any feedback would be very appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Christfanie,

    This is by system design. If they are not related to JE, there is no distribution rule concept yet.

    If you set up default Distribution Rules on that G/L Account, then system can distribute according to this rule. There is no run time assign rule for it.

      Hi Gordon,

      Payment has same amount on payment means and document selected: IDR 20.000

      no payment on account.

      FYI, I use payment means Credit Card so I can select Expense G/L Account and post it on Debit JE.

      Thank you. Regards,
