In BSEG, why aren't debits = credits within the same Accounting Document Number?

I have a dump of the cluster table BSEG and I noticed that some accounting document numbers don't have debits = credits (e.g. some accounting document numbers would consist of only debits).

I was under the impression that the accounting document number is in an accounting sense the journal voucher so why are there cases where debits and credits are not equal?

    Hello Tarek - please go into transaction FB03 to view the document number

    For example an downpayment request (or noted item) is not an actual posting (yet) but is present in the BSEG table (with only 1 line). If you post a FB03 screenshot of one of the documents as suggested by Tammy we can calrify that.

    For any accounting doc, ideally it should be zero. Seems that either you have applied filter (so all lines are not considered) or you have done some mistake in calculating dr/cr items.
