F-47 Down Payment Request - Error Message F5053

Dears,

I'm working on a 4.7 SAP R/3 release and, as trying to post a down payment request from transaction <b>F-47</b> with Special Ledger indicator "T", I get Error Message F5053: "The specified special G/L indicator is not classified as "down payment" or not listed in the list of the target special G/L indicators for indicator "F"."

Special Ledger indiactor F is customized correctly meaning that:

- Reconciliation account and alternative reconciliation account are indicate

- The "noted item" flag is set

- Special Ledger Indicator "T" is indicated in the "Target Special Ledger Indicator" field

- The Sp. Led. Indicator F is set as "Down Payment/Down Payment Request"

Would it be possible for you to let me know which other actions still need to be performed (customizing settings, OSS notes implementation, etc...) to solve the issue?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Davide Smaldone

    Davide,

    can you try to create a new special g/l indicator as a copy of "F"?

    Define the new code with target indicator "T"

    then try again!

    Hi Davide

    you have to define the special gl indicator "T" also as "Down payment/down payment request"

    Please do that with transaction OBYR in the properties of code T

    please assign points if helpful

    thx & rgds

    Your indicator T is not defined as down payment type. You need to define it as it with transaction OBYR.

    regards

    Dears,

    thanks for your switf reply. The problem is indeed due to the fact that Special ledeger indicator IS defined as a "Down Payment/Down Payment Request".

    Further more Spec. Led. Ind. "T" is customized as follows:

    - Several associations between Recon. Accounts and Alt. Reconciliation Acc. are indicated

    - The flag "Commitments warning" is activated

    - It is defined as a "Down Payment/Down Payment Request"

    Both Spec. Led. Ind. "T" and "F" have account type "K".

    What can it be, then?

    Davide

    Hi Davide

    are the posting keys 29 and 39 defined in both special G/L indicators?

    Try to enter in code "T" the target G/L indicators F and T

    hope it works like that

    Adi,

    posting keys are for both "Special G/L indicators" 29 and 39. I have tried to insert F in the "Target Special G/L ind." filed but also this doesn't seem to be working, since I still get the same error message.

    Davide,

    does it work, when you use code T in transaction F-48?

    Yes, it does. Infact Down payments are regularly posted with special ledger indicator "T". Furthermore on other systems I have implemented the same settings and the down payment request posting is working perfectly.

    Is there any other customizing setting that is influencing DP requste postings besides transaction OBYR?

    Thanks againg
