Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
- Select view: invoices and Credit Memos
- Search for the credit memo which is in exception
- Select View All
- Navigate to Exceptions tab
- Error: The sum of credit amounts is greater than the sum of debit amounts for the preceding supplier invoice item
In cost distribution of the credit memo, the reference item is invoiceid-lineitem(e.g. XXX.1) Here XXX refers to preceding supplier invoice id and 1 refers to the line item.
In the supplier invoice cost distribution, the reference item (XXX.1) shows amount less than the amount in the credit memo.
This is the reason why the error occurs in the credit memo.
Please change the amount in the credit memo to the original reference amount as specified in the supplier invoice reference.
