ICR - Automatic assignment


We are facing an issue, in the case or assignment rule is defined like this:

When we run automatic assignment or manual, SAP will assign it even amount is not correct, for example:

We don't understand why it's assigned even balance is not equal to 0.

Thanks for your return,

    Hello Philippe,

    There is no way to define a rule that a document group should only be created if the group balances to zero. It really doesn't make any sense to keep items from being assigned to a business transaction (which is basically what assignment is) just because the balance is not zero.

    During interactive reconciliation the program displays all possible matches. In your example above there is one item with EUR 94,19- but two items with EUR 94,19. The program is not intelligent enough to determine which one of these two is the "correct" one, i.e. whether one or both of them belong to the same business transaction. A person can look at this suggestion, add some fields to the layout, and maybe make that determination. Or their determination could be that all three were posted with reference to the same business transaction, so they all need to be assigned to the same document group. In order to get this business transaction to balance to zero, one additional item with EUR 94,19- needs to be posted.

    The reason for creating the document group in automatic assignment is the same. You "only" specified that account, document type, and assignment (ZUONR) need to match and that the amounts should be opposite. This is true for the document groups shown in your screenshot. There is no reason not to assign them based on your rule definition.

    Best regards,
