Hi - the best place to start is the SAP Help at and look at the down payment process. What are the accounting requirements? There are messages if you have a down payment when processing

What is the T-code you are using for the cockpit?

Dear Tammy,

Thank you for the answer. I asked my manager and cockpit which we are using is an application readsoft in SAP described as /cockpit/1

My AP manager just looked on informations you linked and there is not information if special g/l indicator inserted during Down Payment posting with t-code F-47 will working as happened with fb60 t-code.

Below steps our process Down Payment posting:

1. Down Payment request form received.

2. Internal check and approval by AP manager.

3. Senior Accountant post Down Payment using t-code F-47

4. Senior Accountant makes manual payment with citi bank doc.type KM

5. The KM Payment appear on vendor account which is blocked by Senior.

6. After a couple of weeks we receive the invoice which has been paid with Down Payment but we don't know that doc has been already paid.

7. Invoice goes to scan and with barcode goes to the veryfy readsoft.

8. Then opening SAP we open /cockpit/1 where we find whole scanned docs.

I have started this conversation because I would like to know if Down Payment special GL indicator will be working also in cockpit giving a status and amount prepaid.


I'm not familiar with this cockpit; are you using it in ECC or S/4HANA or? Could you share a screen shot?

At the moment a small one. I am after work now but looking for some better one.


OK, thank you for the screen shot. It appears to be a bolt-on from Readsoft - so I don't think I can help you further (I am sorry). Have you considered asking for help at the Readsoft site?

No worries. What ever thank you too. I think yes I need help at the readsoft site.
