2926726 - Payer/Payee details not Displayed for Payment Allocation Posting to G/L Account

Symptom

You have allocated Payment  to GL Account in Payment AllocationID 456 to a G/L account(456 here refers to Payment Allocation ID) and have mentioned Payer/Payee as 123(123 here refers to Payer/Payee) and you are unable to see Payer/Payee details in the Payment Allocation Journal Entry.

Environment

Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payment Management Work center.
  2. Go to the Payment Allocation view.
  3. Show All Payment Allocation and Find Payment Allocation.
  4. Go to Allocation to GL Account tab

You could see that the GL Account and Payee/Payer details are maintained and Choose post.

The Journal Entry which gets created does not show Payer/Payee details.

Cause

When the payer / payee PQR(Partner Company) is definitely a partner company. However the G/L Account group entered is of type other liabilities which is a balance sheet account. For Balance sheet accounts we only derive the partner company if it is open item managed G/L Account.

 

Resolution

The tooltip of Payer / Payee field clearly states that business partner should be populated only if the payer / payee is a partner company.

When the payer / payee 123(123 here refers to Payer/Payee) is definitely a partner company. However if the G/L Account group entered is of type other liabilities which is a balance sheet account. For Balance sheet accounts ths system only derives the partner company if it is open item managed G/L Account.

 If you see that in the set of books DEF(DEF Refers to set of books), the G/L Account derived is open item managed and hence you see the partner company derived.

However for set of books DEF, the G/L Account is not an open item managed G/L Account. Hence the system does not derive the partner company.
