Information in this document applies to any platform.



Create PO, Create Receipt, Match with Receipt.
After that Return the Receipt -> Debit memo is created.
PO is canceled which is creating Reversal of the Encumbrance.
Now, the user performs a reversal of the debit memo distribution and is canceling this after that.
Problem is that on the debit memo there is no accounting for the encumbrance but in original invoice encumbrance reversal is there so because of this the user has negative env amount on the PO.

For PO the user overbilled as follows:


This means that Reserve on the PO was made for Qty = 2 but Reversal in AP is for 4, double the quantity ordered, hence user gets negative Encumbrance Amount.
