Accounting document is not created for movement type 108

Accounting document was created for 107.

But on reversing this using movement type 108, no accounting document was created.

This resulted in open items that could not be cleared.

Is this normal?

Thanks in advance,

Please check with your material type. Is it only qty update? no valuation change?

However,while posting a question you need to specify what steps you are doing ,which t-code your are using,what is your configuration in OBYC settings etc.Then only anybody will be able to help in a better way.

How did you cancel? did you reverse the material document or did you create a new movement with movement type 108?

when was the 107 posted and when the 108? different months? what has happened in the mean time? was the price changed in your material master? Was the price zero at the time of cancellation? Has there been an invoice between 107 and 108 movement creation?

Hi Jurgen,

Sorry for the late reply.

Here is the entire history for this PO.

The PO was anyway closed.

However the GR/IR account appears as an open account in FBL1N for this particulary PO

How can we clear this amount now?

Looks like you need a historian with SAP knowledge.

There was a time with a wrong value for the 108 movement, this was fixed with OSS note 1001434 - Incomplete valuation with BWART 108 (in the meantime already invalid) . So it would be worth to investigate if you were already in ECC600 when the postings were done and if this note existed at that time or was implemented later.

Putting your movements in sequence then I see that 107 was first, followed by GR/IR clearance... before it came to 108 movement.

However looking at the amount of your FBL1N document gives me the impression that it is not related to the 107 / 108 movement from 2012.

The amount is equal to the 101 / 102 movements from 2013

Is this FBL1N document at all created from the MM invoice that can be seen in the history of the PO - try to match the numbers - or is it a stand alone (and double) posting in FI?

Yes.. the problem must have been with 108.

The amount (640.50) was first posted in GR accounting document (Movement type 107).

This price and quantity was later changed in PO.

And the amount that was posted in GR document was reversed and adjusted using MR11.

108 was also done to return the goods, however, since the amount was already adjusted in MR11, no amount was posted in the reversal.

So now the GR IR balance for this PO is 0.

Later when GR was done, the correct amount (589.26) was again posted in GR to 210500.

However when invoice was created, system did not consider the amount that was cleared using MR11

and 210500 was credited with 1299.76 (589.26 + 640.50) against a debit of 589.26) to vendor account

and the additional 640.90 against the adjustment account Equip rep Costs.

This 640.50 remains open for 210500 for that PO.

The FBL1N has two entries -

one for IR and one for GR which could not be cleared off against each other due to difference in values.

Since this was in 2012, I don't think we had ECC6.0 then. We might not be able to do anything now if it was related to that OSS note right? I guess will raise an incident to SAP to clear it.
