2693936 - Warehouse Confirmation Journal Entry Posted With 0,00 Debit Side Only

Symptom

You have posted warehouse confirmation and in the journal entry, you only see debit posting with 0,00 and no credit posting and not even with 0,00.

Environment

sap business bydesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger work center.
  2. Journal Entries view.
  3. Select the source document and view the journal entry.

Sample:

Inventory - Finished Goods A/c Debit 0,00

Gain/Loss -Inventory A/c Debit 0,00.

Cause

  1. Purchase order priced zero and the net value of the PO is zero.
  2. Material used in the purchase order has its inventory cost rate maintained as zero.
  3. Perpetual cost is  maintained as standard cost.

Resolution

When the Purchase Order has zero value and material cost is also zero then the postings are expected to be like this.
Generally if material cost is different from purchase order cost then the difference account is hit. But here both the Purchase Order cost and material cost is zero.

This is in case of standard cost though. If it is moving average then inventory gets revaluated. But here the cost rate maintained for the material and PO price is zero.
If this is the case then the posted are as expected above.
