Reproducing the Issue

After your execute revenue recognition, you found there is no cost posted regarding the journal entry voucher of some sales orders.


Revenue Recognition only considers JEV of business transaction type “634 - Man. Write-Up/Write-Down for Sales Document”.

The journal entry voucher you created are of type "633 - Man. Adjusting Entry for Sales Documents".

Per the name of manual JEV 633 “Man. Adjusting Entry for Sales Documents” - this means it is a JEV, which is considered as a final adjustment on a sales document and in an ideal scenario, it should be created to post their actuals directly (in the actual account), only after revenue recognition run and in case revenue recognition run does not recognize cost/revenue as per the expectations,

And since it is a final adjustment, no revenue recognition is supposed to be executed after that. Therefore the system hasn’t been designed to consider such JEVs in revenue recognition run.


Reverse the journal entry voucher of type 633 and create new one of type 634.
