2902335 - Journal Entry Voucher Error: For sales document item (Sales Order) use journal entry type 00047 to post to assigned project task

Symptom

While attempting to post a Journal Entry Voucher, an error is raised.

Environment

SAP Business By Design

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger Work Center.
  2. Select Journal Entry Vouchers.
  3. Click on New and then Journal Entry Voucher.
  4. Fill in criteria and click on Simulate or Post.

Result:

Error: For sales document item (Sales Order) use journal entry type 00047 to post to assigned project task.

Cause

A reason could be that the Business Process Variant is 427 (Project Processing - For Multi-Customer Projects) rather than 257 (Project Processing - For Customer Projects).

Resolution

You can use the Project Task field when posting the Journal Entry Voucher.

The primary cost collecting object in case of Multi Customer Project is the project itself. Hence while doing manual sales postings only the project task is required.

Sales Document is only an additional information which is not required while posting the manual Journal Entry Voucher. This is the current design of the system.
