    Hi,

    There is no T Code for Negative Postings. As you know Reversal Document T Code: FB08 is used for Negative Postings also with one Reversal Reason Code. But you have to create Nnegative Postings Reversal Reason codes.

    IMG Path: Financial Accounting according to account type in General Ledger Accounting/Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable ® Business Transactions ® Document Reversal ® Define Reasons for Reversal

    Hi,

    In T Code: OBY6 screen select Negative Postings Allowed Checkbox. By using Reversal Reasons, You can post Reversal Postings for both Normal Reversal Negative Reversal.

    Thanks

    Hi

    If you do not want to reverse the document ie do not want to do FB08, but want to do a negative posting of that document, come to T Code FBR2. Fill the document number, Fiscal year, Company code and click on tabs "Generate Reverse Posting" + "Dislpay Line items"

    Hi,

    Negative posting is a concept in SAP, by which system posts the reversal document with a negative amount on same side (Same side means if earlier the transaction was posted on debit side, by reversing the entry system will again post the rectification transaction on debit side with a negative amount, instead of posting positive amount on credit side).

    If you are not clear, please let me know, I will give you another example, if required.

    You can do the setting of "negative posting allowed" at various levels like in OBY6, OBA7.

      Hi,

      Please do not worry. There is no seperate method of doing negative posting.

      If you will simply reverse a document by FB08 and you have opt for negative posting allowed, system will post accordingly in the ledger.

      Best Regards

    Hi,

    As i understand, awrong entry is posted by debiting Salary account and crediting Rent account. But, the actual entry you want to post is Debit-salary a/c and Credit-Cash a/c.

    You can do two things in this case:

    1. Reverse the first document through FB08 where the entry will be nullified and post a fresh entry.

    2. Transfer the credit from Rent a/c to cash a/c. This can be done through a JV.

    Negative posting is used for reversing a document with no effect on debit/credit line items of the accounts. It has got nothing to do with transfering one item account value to another.

    Please check.

    Hi,

    Negative posting means in SAP system we can posts the reversal document with a negative amount on same side (same side means if earlier the transaction was posted on debit side, by reversing the entry system will again post the rectification transaction on debit side likewise if earlier the transaction was posted on credit side, by reversing the entry system will again post the rectification transaction on credit side with a negative amount, instead of posting positive amount on debit side).

    We need to make the configuration settings of "negative posting allowed" at company code level through T. code OBY6 and document type level through T. code OBA7 and reversal reasons for negative postings through theIMG Path of: Financial Accounting> General Ledger Accounting >Business Transactions>Adjustment Posting/Reversal>Define Reasons for Reversal

    Here we can define reason code by selecting check box for "Negative postings" along with check box for

    u201CAlternative posting date allowedu201DAfter then we can perform negative Reversal posting through T. code FB08 for incorrect documents.

    Hi Yedi.

    Beside of all information that was sent to you for our colleagues, There are some documents can not reversed through T-codes FB08, FBRA etc.

    The reversal of some documents only can occur through the module that it was posted the documents as for example documents (TV) type from Travel Management module and (EP) type form Treasure an Risk Management (T-code: TPM10).

    Regards.
