Warning message: 'Debit payment assigned to ABC; total payment is a credit amount'
There is an inconsistency in the direction of the payment, in this case is an Incoming Payment and the documents selected for clearing.
Payment: Incoming Payment.
Documents: Credit to the customer or invoices.
You cannot clear a credit to the customer with an Incoming Payment.
You need to assign the Payment to the Customer Account ABC by clicking on Assign On Account Payment button in the Payment Allocation and then clear it manually from the Customer Account Monitor.
