Splitting rule 0000000012/0000/0001 cannot be removed


Dear Seniors,

We are getting the following error while posting a document.


Splitting rule 0000000012/0000/0001 cannot be removed

The system tried to change the splitting rule for splitting method 0000000012, accounting transaction 0000, transaction variant 0001 into a form which it can process. This has not been successful.

The reason for this is probably that a "loop" has been defined. A loop usually occurs when an item category PT1 is defined as an item to be split, with item category PT2 defined as a base item, and item category PT2 is also defined as an item to be split, but with item category PT1 as its base item.


I checked the splitting rule 0000000012, transaction 0000 and transaction variant 0001. There is only one "Item categories to be edited" as 01100 and the Base Item categories for this are as follows --

01000 Balance Sheet Account

01300 Cash Discount Clearing

02000 Customer

03000 Vendor

04000 Cash Account

05100 Taxes on Sales/Purchases

05200 Withholding Tax

06000 Material

07000 Fixed Assets

20000 Expense

30000 Revenue

40100 Cash Discount (Expense/Revenue/Loss)

40200 Exchange Rate Difference

As there is only one Item category, as stated by the error long text, there is no loop here.

Can anyone please suggest as what else I need to check.

Thanks and Regards
