SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the General Ledger Work Center.
- Go to the Common Tasks View and click New Journal Entry Voucher.
- Enter Journal Entry Type 00088 - Manual Entry for Sales Documents and other mandatory data.
- Under items, enter Sales Doc. Type Sales Order, Sales Doc. ID AAA-BB and Sales Doc. Item ID BB (where AAA-BB means sales order - sales order item and BB means sales order item)
- Click Simulate or Post.
- Error message is thrown:
'For sales document item AAA-BB (Sales Order) use journal entry type 00047 to post to assigned project task DEF' (where DEF means project task)
A Journal Entry Voucher (JEV) with Journal Entry Type 00088 - Manual Entry for Sales Documents cannot have both Sales Doc. data and Multiple-Customer Project (MCP) data (in Project Task field) at the same time.
The primary cost collecting object in case of MCP is the project itself. Hence while doing manual sales postings only the project task is required.
Sales Document is only an additional information which is not required while posting the manual JEV. That is the current design.
To post or simulate the journal entry voucher, leave the Sales Doc. Type, Sales Doc. ID and Sales Doc. Item ID fields blank and enter only Project Task.
