My user posted wrong currency in the invoice with reference to a PO.

Reversal of the Invoice is not happening error message with M8 283

Also, tried to processing credit memo, however the debit and credit amounts are not matching.

Checked to make this error message to Warning message for the M8 283 but this option is also not possible.

Need your help/idea for reversing the Invoice or correcting the currency if you can help?

Please note that this Invoice is being posted through another system.

Either we need to reverse this document or need to correct the Currency from CAD to USD.

Have you read the long text of the message?

Double click the message, or click the question mark, or use the message number and check it in SE91 transaction.

SAP explains why this message is issued and what options you have. (changing message attributes from error to warning is not among them)

If your situation is different than explained in the long text then you better explain your specific situation with screenshots

When i try to reverse the Invoice doc i received the message as attached.

What we tried is to

  1. Since system wasn’t allowing us to reverse the invoice using MR8M we processed credit memo which is part of the actual process
  2. Parked invoice on this PO is a valid invoice which has to be paid to vendor and we cannot have it cancelled, we need incorrectly posted Doc# 5105824609 to be reversed and process the parked doc# 5105861239 to match the balance of PO and not by cancelling the parked invoice.

Any clues? please let me know. Thanks.

You have countless partial invoices which can be seen in the screenshot and I think there are even more hidden.

The posting in CAD is also several months back and you probably have a different exchange rate today.

Please search for OSS note using the message number as search term.

There are several notes that explain step by step what to do in such situation, beside of OSS notes that have just bug fixes for this error case and some that explain the posting logic which lead to difference that is mentioned in the long text.
