Exchange rate difference not generated Down payment


We have below scenario where exchange rate difference line is not generated automatically for down payment while posting with clearing the down payment request.

1) DP request made with EUR 0.34083, (Amt in Doc-13444.73, Amt in LC-4582.36)

2) Current exchange rate in OB08 0.34420, but this I have changed to 0.34083 as I get 'DP amount is greater than DP request error'.

3) Down payment - ME2DP, entered the local currency amount manually in bank line item as 4627.67 as per exchange rate 0.34420 agreed with vendor, but difference of LC 45.30 (DP request LC amount-DP LC amount) is not generated automatically, hence LC debit and credit amount is matched and below error 'F5580' is generated.

"Balance in Group currency KWD is too large for automatic correction"

Required configurations are maintained in OBA1 for DPR & DP reconciliation A/cs.

Refer attached doc.f5580.png

Kindly advise.

    Check whether you need to carry out coding corrections as mentioned in OSS note 2066153

    • Hi,

      As per the note 2066153, symptom is for cross company code posting.

      Hence, it is not applicable to our issue.

      Note contents:

      "You post a down payment based on a down payment request. You manually enter the local currency amount in the bank line (for example, the amount from the bank statement, translated using the exchange rate of the bank). If the exchange rate of the bank line differs from that of the document header, the system posts exchange rate differences or issues error message F5 580 ("Balance in ... is too large for automatic correction") for a cross-company code posting".
