Hi SAP gurus,

I would like to seek your help on finding the cause of an error I encountered when using BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_CHECK. Error message is ' System cannot calculate cash discount base amount; enter it'.

So, you have to make sure that all items in the BAPI have a tax

code linked to them.

Note 487064 contains not only corrections but theoretical informations

too. Practically how to fill the BAPI correctly.

Also check the following notes:

306504 Collective note: BAPIs for the AC interface

626235 Tax postings with accounting BAPIs

Hope this helps,

I check the parameters and it looks good for me. I tried to use that again in BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST but I did not encounter the error. Can someone explain me why? What are the differences of the two BAPI that checks and posts accounting documents?

Your feedback will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.
