Error encountered when using FM BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_CHECK

Hi SAP gurus,

I would like to seek your help on finding the cause of an error I encountered when using BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_CHECK. Error message is ' System cannot calculate cash discount base amount; enter it'.

    So, you have to make sure that all items in the BAPI have a tax

    code linked to them.

    Note 487064 contains not only corrections but theoretical informations

    too. Practically how to fill the BAPI correctly.

    Also check the following notes:

    306504 Collective note: BAPIs for the AC interface

    626235 Tax postings with accounting BAPIs

    Hope this helps,

      I check the parameters and it looks good for me. I tried to use that again in BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST but I did not encounter the error. Can someone explain me why? What are the differences of the two BAPI that checks and posts accounting documents?

      Your feedback will be highly appreciated.

      Thank you.
