Down Payment Request - Special G/L Indicator F

Dear all,

While posting Vendor Down Payment Request (tcode: F-47), I encountered the following error message:

Special G/L indicator F is not defined for down payments

Message no. F5053

Diagnosis

The specified special G/L indicator is not classified as "down payment" or not listed in the list of the target special G/L indicators for indicator "F".

I have performed the following configuration for Special GL indicator F:

Tcode: OBYR or FBKP

Account type = K, Special G/L Indicator = F. I have set the recon account from vendor master into the list of the account, also the Planning Level = FF.

I click on the Properties button, and following is the setup of the Properties:

Noted Items  select this check box.

Target Special GL Indicator: AF

Special G/L Transaction Types: select Down Payment/Down Payment Request.

Can you please kindly share how to solve this issue? Thank you very much in advance.

Kind Rgds,

Dahlia

    Hi,

    In F-47, do not enter Sp gl indicator F. Select the intended sp. gl indicator e.g. A for current assets or M for Advance against asset purchase (in your case this indicator may differ) & enter. You can see the indicator F is selected on next screen.

    After posting system records the memo record under indicator F.

    Do not change the config settings for indicator F.

    This will solve your query.

    Hi,

    In properties, change the target spl.gl indicator to AIMB and remove F. Kindly check you have assigned down payment account

    to reconciliation account in OBYR and downpayment is a reconciliation account type vendors in FS00. Please check and revert back.

    Hi Dahlia,

    There are 2-3 things that you have to take care while posting Down Payment request.

    1. Define F as Down Payment request ( this is std. provided by SAP)

    2. Check box Noted items.

    3. In target Spl GL, enter A..this is very important as this is the place where you are linking F to A

    4. In spl GL transaction types, select the radio button Down payment/Down Payment Request.

    5. Now in Spl GL A, take care that In spl GL transaction types, the radio button Down payment/Down Payment Request is selected.

    Regards,
