Document Reversal

Document Reversal in SAP Finance

First reverse the incorrect doc. System provides function to reverse G/L, customer & vendor doc either individually or in a mass reversal.
There are two ways to reverse a doc entered incorrectly:

  1. Normal Reversal Posting :Auto, Zero bal, post incorrect debit to credit & vice versa causing and increase in transaction figures
  2. Negative Posting: manual, Zero bal, removes traces, also posts incorrect debit to credit and vice versa but does not add posted amount to transaction figures, it subtracts transaction figures so brings doc in original state before incorrect posting.

A reversal reason must be entered which explains the reversal & also controls if reversal date is allowed to differentiate from original posting date. Docs with cleared items cannot be reversed until it is first reset. Normally system uses normal reversal posting, but if negative postings are used following prerequisites must be fulfilled:

  1. The company code allows negative postings
  2. The reversal reason must be defined for negative postings.

Negative postings can also perform transfer postings of incorrect Line Items. The item is removed from wrong account by a negative posting and posted to correct account by a normal posting. But this can only be done if a document allows a negative posting. In the Doc header of reversed document, the doc number of reversal is also mentioned, along with reversal reason. In Doc header of reversal doc the doc number of reversed doc is available without any reversal reason.

Revised.
you need to tell the steps of Negative posting with transfer posting of incorrect line items. Any one can copy from the PDF and post to the web but useful step would be to explain the steps of how to do that. Please next time provide the examples as well so that we can understand it properly and not just the copied stuff from text book.
