Infor LN & Baan Finance Tip: Unallocated Payment
How do I assign an unallocated payment to a purchase invoice when the document dates are not the same?
When trying to assign an unallocated payment, it is possible that the purchase invoice is not displayed in session Assign Unallocated / Advance Payments to Invoices (tfcmg2106s000), even though it is showing in the open entries. This can happen when the document date of the unallocated payment lies before the document date of the purchase invoice you want to assign it to. There are 2 ways to handle this:
- Change the document date of the unallocated payment. This can be done by reversing the original document and creating a new one with a different document date.
- Create a new financial batch and use a transaction type of category Cash, subcategory Assign Advance/ Unallocated Payment. The date of the assignment will be the Transaction Entry Date of the batch. This way, the document dates can differ. Session Assign Advance/Unallocated Payments to invoices (tfcmg2131s000) will open. Chose the correct unallocated payment document and on top, click assign invoices to assign the correct invoice.
