Goal

HOW TO HANDLE EARNED DISCOUNT AMOUNT DIFFERENCES IN A RECEIPT APPLICATION?

It's not unusal that customers take discount on receipts, which exceed the allowed earned discount
amount.
The Receipt Application Screen does not allow to change the discount amount to a higher value than the earned discount the customer is allowed to take.

The definition of unearned discount is on the time and not the aount a customer can take discount.
This means, if a customer takes their allowed discount amount or less later than the time (including grace days) than he is allowed, too.
