Reproducing the Issue
Go to the General Ledger work center.
- Click the New Journal Entry Voucher, under Common Tasks.
- Select the journal entry type as 00084 - Manual Entry for Accounts Payable and screen variant 626 - Manual Write-up/Write--Down Accounts Pay.
- Add a credit/debit line. One with reference to the desired supplier account.
The error is raised 'No postings available for supplier ABC and company DEF'.
The error message is valid. By checking the account balance in the General tab of the supplier account monitor, you see that there is no G/L Account balance.
The journal entry type 0084 with screen variant 626 is used to make manual adjustment and/or marking the amount as bad debt, for instance. Journal entry vouchers do neither create items in the supplier account monitor nor clear documents.
If you need to post a transaction so that it appears in the supplier account monitor, use the New Charge/Credit function in the supplier account monitor. Otherwise, postings shall exist for the supplier so that the journal entry voucher can be posted.
