SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger Work Center.
  2. Go to Journal Entries > Journal Entry Vouchers view.
  3. Click New and select Journal Entry Voucher.
  4. Add the rows with debit and credit entries.
  5. Select one of the lines.
  6. Add the Cost Center ABC (where ABC represents the Cost Center ID).
  7. Hit Enter.

    System shows following messages:

    'Technical error AP_ESI_COMMON 106; report an incident'
    'An Write-Up/Write-Down line has either sales data or cost center'


In manual write-up/write-down, either the sales order or the cost center should be passed in both (credit and debit line) and not the sales order in debit and cost center in credit (or the other way around).


To resolve the issue, you need to make sure that you first add the debit/credit lines for sales documents and then you add the debit/credit lines with cost center in both lines.
