Posting payment (FP05) resulted to Balance in Document currency is not Zero


A customer with a payment plan has a balance of $250 as March 2009 invoice.

The customer paid $400 after getting the invoice. In posting the payment via FP05, the error message came out.

1) What is this error message?

2) How come the difference of $150 did not automatically go to Payment on Account?

3) Is there a way to automatically do that instead of manually performing post processing steps in FP05?
