Symptoms

Clients may have a situation with posting a receipt using Automatic Receipt Processing (R03B50 / R03B50D) where the:

  1. Invoice has a discount available with Business Unit 'X'
  2. Receipt has a discount taken and Minor Write-Off
  3. Minor Write-Off has Business Unit 'Y'
  4. Known Match with Invoice receipt algorithm

    *NOTE: Business Unit 'X' and 'Y' is only stating that there are two different business units 

When the client runs Automatic Receipt Processing (R03B50/R03B50D), the system is unable to process both business units and the validation for the discount AAI/Account is not completed correctly.  This results in the discount account field not being populated with the account number even though the AAI and Account is setup in the system.  The error isn't apparent until the client attempts to run R09801 to post the receipt. At this time, the batch errors out.  The workcenter message that states 'Error: Blanks Invalid, Cause: The data field being processed does not allow blanks for zeros'.

If there is no write-off, the system is able to validate the AAI and account resulting in the discount account populated to process the receipt.
