Treatment of Advance to Customer / Vendor in Document Splitting

Dear All!

I am facing an accounting and SAP Dilemma.

I want to use segment account for two segments. I have tested the segment accounting and it is working fine with all the possible scenario except the Advance to Customer and Advance to Vendor.

When I post the Advance to Customer, I dont know which segment the invoice will come of. So I put the profit center of one of the segment.

So the document posted looks like the following in General Ledger View

Bank (Dr) ---- 10,000 (Segment A)

Customer (Advance) (Cr) - 10,000 (Segment A)

when the invoice comes it shows the following in General Ledger View

Customer (Normal) (Dr) - 6,000 (Segment A)

Customer (Normal) (Dr) - 4,000 (Segment B)

Sales (Cr) 6,000 (Segment A)

Sales (Cr) 4,000 (Segment B)

Now my issues is that when I clear the invoice with the advance, the system is not impacting the Bank Account and also not splitting the Advance account according to 6000 and 4000 posted at the time of invoice

At the time of clearing following entry is posted by the system (General Ledger View)

Advance (Dr) 10,000 (Segment A)

Zero Clearing Account (Dr) - 4,000 (Segment B)

Customer (Normal) (Cr) - 6,000 (Segment A)

Customer (Normal) (Cr) - 4,000 (Segment B)

Zero Clearing Account (Cr) - 4,000 (Segment A)

What configuration am I missing here.
