Document reversal error

Hi Experts,

When I try to reverse the document through FB08 transaction I am getting the following message.

"Documents which were not originally posted in Financial Accounting also cannot be reversed in Financial Accounting.However, this document was not posted in the Financial Accounting module, HRPAY is, rather, of type ''.

The document type I am trying to reverse is HR document.

Any help is appreciated.

    System's error message is pretty logical and is for our help, so it does not cause inconsistencies in future. When the FI document is a follow-on of an HR transaction (which is the source), it is not a good idea to reverse the transaction in FI. You will then have a mismatch between HR transaction and corresponding FI balances. Hence, this system message. Stop attempting to reverse this in FI and reverse/correct the transaction in the source (HR). For that reversal/correction transaction in HR, you will have another follow-on FI document which corrects FI balances as well!

      This posting has been done in Posting period 01 and this document contains a payment to a garnishment vendor. We have voided this cheque and want to reverse it but this posting from HR has been as a part of there regular Payroll run so if HR has to reverse this document then they have to reverse it for all the employees who are associated with the document and one more problem is there are other postings from the next pay periods which are done after this posting. So if they have to do it there end they have to reverse lot of documents inorder to go back reverse this document. Is there any other way where we can handle this.

    Go to Document list in the FB08 and check if this document type is available in document type field of general selection. I don't think HR is a valid document type to reverse. Check how the document type is defined.
