EDI Credit Memo with Zero amount

Dear Experts,

We are using EDI for MIRO Invoice posting. PO is Non-GR Based Invoice. So IR has been automatcally posted first (ex: qty = 4)

Then GR has been posted also with qty =4. Then Credit memo was posted with Qty = 1, but we noticed that the posting has zero amount, then Accounting Document has posting to Stock Account and GR/IR Clearing account with amount = to 1 Qty.

Can anyone explain what happened? I know that Credit Memo posting should have posting to Vendor Account, but this case it didn't happen.

Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    Acredit memo can also be receicved from vendor. With what reference you have posted this memo. I think posted to the client's plant from vendor. Hence that quantity posted to stock account. I hope it will give you solution. Thanks

      Hi.. thanks for your input.

      Yes, I understand that the posting is coming from Vendor, but I am confused, why the posting has zero amount?

      As I understand, credit memo is dealing with the amount of the qty that might be has defect that we have to deduct this amount to Vendor payment. But what happened is, it only posted to Stock Account and GR/IR clearing account, no Vendor Line was created in the FI Doc because in the IR document itself does not have the amount.

      Thank you and your further input will be highly appreciated.

    Can you please check what transaction used to post the credit memo with zero amount ?

    In the standard, it is not allowed to post the 0 amount credit memo.

      Thanks for showing interest on helping.

      Since this is EDI posting, the tcode in background is MR1M. I tried to simulate this in quality system using MIRO - Credit Memo and i was able to reproduce this case. It can post without Amount, only qty. So seems that this is standard.

      Note that PO is Non-GR Base IV.

      Any further idea?

      Thank you in advance.
