Error: Reason codes with automatic charge-off are not permitted here(F-28)

Hi All

I creted a reason code in obxl t-code and assigned a gl code in OBXL transaction code, But when I am trying to clear a payment with reason code in F-28, System is throwing the following error..Can some one tell me why i am getting this error?

Reason codes with automatic charge-off are not permitted here

Message no. F5605


The reason code entered is designed to ensure that the payment difference amount is posted to an account specially set up for this purpose. Postings of this nature usually require additional specifications (e.g. tax code, business area). If the difference stems from a single open item, the necessary specifications can be taken from that item. In the case that led to this error message, however, the difference does not stem soley from one item, which means that this method cannot be used.

System Response

The reason code entered is not accepted.


You can either select a different reason code, which would create a new open item for the customer or vendor OR write off the difference using the function Charge off diff.. This function either takes you into a pre-configured account assignment model or into the document overview. From here you can enter the required difference postings.

    Hi Venkata,

    It seems while entering the payment (partial payment / residual items) ... you are clearing multiple items with differences. (e.g. if the difference amount is $30, then may the difference consists of two invoices underpaid by $15 each). In this scenario, F-28 doesn't know which additional account assignment fields should be picked up ... hence the error.

    First of all, to validate that this indeed is the case, try clearing a payment with the same reason code where difference can be attributed to a single invoice. If you still get an error, then there is some other problem.

    Then, to take care of a the business scenario where the difference can indeed be due to multiple documents, select "charge off difference" option and create an entry to post the difference as necessary.
