Down Payment Balance

My scenario is as follows:

down payment received of $ 1000

Invoice I issued of $200

Invoice II issued of $300 AND allocated to down payment

open AR + down payments should show:

Down payment (balance) -700$ (= down payment less invoice II allocated)

Invoice I +200$

BALANCE -500$

The report does show me the correct balance and Invoice 1, however instead of the down payment balance left, it shows me full down payment of -1000 and then the +300 clearing on 2 separate line items.

Is there a way to view it as just one line item as the down payment balance instead? along with the AR ?

Note: I can view the balance if i select Special G/L in FBL5N but I am selecting Normal items along with Special GL transactions since I want the cumulative of AR and the down payments.

Thanks

    This is how the system will behave when u are clearing. Pl read the following extract from SAP online help.

    A partial payment is a payment that is posted to an account without any open items being cleared. You assign this partial payment to an open item. When you post the partial payment, the system marks the document number of the original open item in the line item for the partial payment. The original open item and the partial payment remain open.

    Suggest you to try the residual payment tab, instead of partial payment tab.
