Down Payment Receivables


Dear expert

I have one issue about Control Account, Iu2019m using SAP B1 8.82 PL00. Under Accounting tab of Business Partner Master Data, there is a button (u2026.) for Control Account. And it has 2 account types u201CDown Payment Receivablesu201D and u201COpen Debtsu201D. I read help file it said that u201CDown Payment Receivablesu201D u201CSelect a G/L account to be used as a control account when creating an incoming payment based on an A/R down payment invoice.u201D I also try to set 2 differences GL Account for u201CAccount Receivableu201D and u201CDown Payment Receivablesu201D and test it follow to its description. But the result transaction record use only u201CAccount Receivableu201D account as control account.

So can you tell me clearly when SAP use u201CDown Payment Receivablesu201D as control account? Or it not available for use now?
