Customer Tolerance for Clearing

Hello friends,

I have one issue defining tolerances for customers. The company where i work has businesses in Colombia, so the local currency is COP. They want to use a tolerance of 1000 CP when clearing customer documents.

I have customized transactions OBA0, OBA3 and OBA4 only per amount with 1000 COP.

After this, I tried to do a clearing using F-32 for a DR document type and a DG document type. The difference between these documents is 870 COP, so it's within tolerance, but when i'im triyng to save the operation the message "difference is too large for clearing".

Could anyone give me any clue to solve this?

Thanks a lot.

Regards,

Fer

    Hi Fer,

    When trying to clear an G/L- or vendor- or customer-account using

    F-03, F-32, F-44, FB05, FB1S, FB1K, FB1D you get the Error message:

    F5263  'The difference is to large for a clearing' this may be caused

    where the user tries to clear two or more documents where

    either the balance in foreign currency (BSEG-WRBTR) is not zero

    or the balance in local currency (field BSEG-DMBTR) is not zero

    or the balance in local currency 2 (field BSEG-DMBE2) is not zero

    or the balance in local currency 3 (field BSEG-DMBE2) is not zero.

    Example:

    If you maintain the account for realized exchange rate differences gain

    or loss as an open item managed balance sheet account you will hardly

    manage to clear the open items because the items only seldom balance to

    zero in all currencies.

    For solving this :

    Items can only be cleared if they fit in ALL currencies. The balance in

    transaction-currency (WRBTR) and local currency (DMBTR) and local

    currency 2 (DMBE2) and local currency 3 (DMBE3) must balance to Zero.

    Only in this case you can clear them with each other.

    Please check your settings for the company code involved concerning

    clearing in local currency. You can find this setting within the

    Implementation Guide under following path:

    Financial Accounting

    -> Financial Accounting Global Settings

       -> Global Parameters for Company Code

          -> Enter Global Parameters.

    The field in question is called 'No exchange rate differences when

    clearing in Local Currency'. For more details please check F1 help for

    this field.

    I hope this information helps you!

    Hi Fernando,

    FBKP -> Automatic Postings -> Cash Discount and Payment Differences -> Paymen Difference by reason , and assign a GL account for your tolerance group.

    Kind Regards

    Hello Fernando,

    Do FBKP exchange rate difference for the Open item GL accounts and also check OBY6 for the No Forex rate difference when clearing in Local Currency.

    Follow the below document. Hope it helps to answer your query.

    Hi,

    From My understanding if u want to clear the value must be 0. I dont think this is associated with any tolerance profile setting.

    Correct me if im wrong.
