hi,

i need clarification from the post.

1) suresh kumar : dont put head ache of debit memo

may i know what does it mean?

2) tracy meng : in sap, we normally do credit memo for vendor and cust.

may i know why no debit memo?

3) when issue credit memo to vendor, then it should be pay more. why entry is DR vendor?

is it because SAP only recognises credit memo? and when using FB65, it knows it is to reduce value?

4) when issue credit memo to customer, it means credit the debtor. then we earn less. this is correct.

why not debit note for point 3?

i really need to make myself clear. hope can have the explain and i will reward.

thanks

Hello

In general business scenarios, both credit memos and debit memos are in use.

Take an example of a vendor. When good come in we credit the vendor. When there returns or adjustments, we need to debit the vendor for the excess.

So we can raise a debit memo. But in SAP this is called as crdit memo and posting keys automatically gets adjusted.

Similarly in case of a customer transaction, we debit him for all recievables. For sales returns or adjustments, we use a crdit memo, to credit the customer to reduce the debit balance. Luckily in SAP, the terminology is right.

Hope this is clear now.

hi,

i know in general cr memo and dr memo also in use but in sap i think it treats it different way. that is why i ask here.

1) for adjustment to payable, normally we issue dr memo to reduce the payment. why sap calls cr memo? what tcode for this

2) what if the real cr memo which want to send to vendor? what tcode?

3) for adjustment to receivable, normally cr memo to customer. for this, sap, no change. what tcode?

4) what if i want to issue dr memo to customer? what t-code?

hope can get the reply

thanks

SAP does not work in a different way for debit and credit memos.

You actually define how they post with combinations of t codes used, Document types and posting keys.

There are some rules you can build in to say a credit memo is due the day it is created, where as a debit memo has the payment terms, however if that is a problem, you can have the debit memo to have a payment term of due immediately.

I think you are gettting confused over terminology...
