Clearing/ Matching


Hello SAP Gurus',

Need some clarification here. I am familiar with clearing rules: In this activity, you enter the criteria for grouping the open items of an account for automatic clearing. The program clears open items of a group if the balance in local and foreign currency is zero.

However, what if I want matching documents say invoices and credit memo's but they don't net to zero? What is this called? Matching? I want to create rules to associate items by fields like in clearing rules but will associate the credits and the debits. I do not want netting leaving one line item with a balance but I would like to see for example a partial payment and then a credit memo comes in later and I would like to see the credit memo applied to that partial payment.

Many thanks!
