Hi,

Generally down paymenr request is used when you have received/paid cheque which is not deposited in bank. The downpayment entry does not have any effect in account . It is only a single line entry. This is used for analysis purpose. You can check the balances of the customer including this item. Take a example for customer

A customer has given our sales representative chq for 10000. Then we will generate the dp request. So at that time we can have two views for customer account

1. Actual customer balance which does not include dp.

2. Balance with dp by selecting spl gl option while generating acct statement in fbl5n.

The dp is posted when the cheque is actually deposited in the bank. At this time the actual entry for the payment is effected in the boks of account.

Warm Regards

If you use the payment or dunning programs for posting or dunning of down payments, you need to use down payment requests. These are special documents that serve as a reference for posting a down payment or as a document for the dunning program. They do not update the account balance.

When entering a down payment request, you enter the information required by the payment or dunning program. For example, you must enter a target special G/L indicator. The special G/L indicator is used later to post the down payment. The system requires this indicator to determine the correct special G/L account for down payments. Via the master record of this down payment account, the system determines which fields are relevant for entering a down payment request and how entries are treated.

You enter a down payment request. To do this in the standard system, you enter the target special G/L indicator A. The system calculates the corresponding down payment account and determines how the tax is displayed in the open item and down payment accounts and which information is required in the down payment request. The corresponding fields are ready for input. Therefore, the last posted down payment accounts determine the specific adaptation of screens and not the request accounts.
