Divide by Zero encountered 'Withholding Tax'

Good evening pro's

I'm busy with a test upgrade to 8.8 SP00 PL14 and everything went successful, but in 8.8 when i open a sales order, i get an error message that says Divide by zero error encountered 'Withholding Tax'

I put in the with holding tax in under financial setup and then the message disappears. when i close sales orders and open it again, the message is back... how can i get rid of this message?

I forgot to mention that this doesn't block to order / delivery / invoice to be processed at all.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Reinhardt

    Have you managed to progress with this at all? We are also experiencing the same issue.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Reinhardt,

    It is not necessarily evening since this forum will be accessed from all over the world. I am in the morning.

    For the problem you encountered, it might be a bug in the system or a wrong setting by you. Log a message to SAP support if you can not find anything wrong.
