2594961 - You Get an Error Message 'Absolute value of assigned amount too high' in Payment Allocation

Symptom

After allocating payments to open receivables the Open Amount of the Payment Allocation is zero. However, when trying to post the Payment Allocation you get the Error Message: 'Absolute value of assigned amount too high'.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payment Management Work Center.
  2. Navigate to the Payment Allocations View.
  3. Select and edit the relevant Payment Allocation.
  4. Press Post.

or

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management Work Center.
  2. Go to the Bank Statements View.
  3. Navigate to the relevant Bank Statement and press Edit.
  4. Follow the link Postprocessing Required to access the relevant Payment Allocation.
  5. Press Post.

In both cases you get the Error Message 'Absolute value of assigned amount too high'.

Cause

For at least one Receivable - for example a Customer Invoice - the Applied Net Amount exceeds the Open Amount and the Cleared Amount.

Resolution

Adjust the Applied Net Amount for the Receivable Document in the relevant Payment Allocation to the same amount than the Open Amount. Concerned Payment Allocations can be identified by a negative Remaining Balance for Receivables in the Payment Allocation grid in the tab Customers/Suppliers. The same applies for positive Remaining Balances for Payables.

  1. Go to the Payment Management Work Center.
  2. Navigate to the Payment Allocations View.
  3. Select and edit the relevant Payment Allocation.
  4. Select the Customer/Supplier Tab.
  5. Change the Applied Net Amount of the Document ID XXX (where XXX represents the Receivable or Payable Document) to the Open Amount.
  6. Press Post.

Now the issue is resolved and you can observe that there is no Error Message anymore.
