Payment Difference Configuration - Accounts Receivable


Hi SAP Gurus,

I have the following configuration set for payment differences.

-OBA3: Customer / vendor tolerance: Amount: 5.00, Percent: 99.9%, Adjust discount by 1.00

- OBA4: Tolerances for Users: Amount: 10.00, Percent: 10%, Cash Discnt 10.00

- OBXL: Reason Code 01, GL account 600010

With these settings, in F-28 (post incoming payment transaction), I was able to clear a $100,000 customer invoice with a posting of just $50, with the residual item created using reason code 01.

The posting I get is

Cash - Dr 50

Expense Account 600010 (maintained in OBXL) DR 99,950

Customer u2013 Cr 100,000

Looks like the tolerance group setting is not working. It should not allow me to post a payment difference more than $5, as per the above setting. Can anyone let me know what is wrong with the settings? Should I look at anything else?
