Reason code


Hi All ,

My client requires difference in payment to vendors to be posted in a separete GL account . The diffrence is within the range of Rs 50 . For this I have configured a reson code by using t-code OBBE . Before that I have set the tolerence limite for employees as well as vendors and while I am using TCODE F-53 for payment to vendors with a reson code the follwoing errors are coming : -

Reason codes with automatic charge-off are not permitted here

Message no. F5605


The reason code entered is designed to ensure that the payment difference amount is posted to an account specially set up for this purpose. Postings of this nature usually require additional specifications (e.g. tax code, business area). If the difference stems from a single open item, the necessary specifications can be taken from that item. In the case that led to this error message, however, the difference does not stem soley from one item, which means that this method cannot be used.

System Response

The reason code entered is not accepted.


You can either select a different reason code, which would create a new open item for the customer or vendor OR write off the difference using the function Charge off diff.. This function either takes you into a pre-configured account assignment model or into the document overview. From here you can enter the required difference postings

Can anybody please suggest what is missing here.
