Procedure documentation Reversing a Down Payment Request  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

A down payment request is automatically reversed when a down payment referencing that request is paid, regardless of whether the payment program carries out the down payment or whether you enter and post it manually. Further information on the payment program is contained in this documentation.

To learn how to include down payment requests when entering down payments, refer to Posting a Down Payment with a Down Payment Request

You can also reverse down payment requests manually at any time, without posting a down payment. To do this, proceed as follows:

1. From the Accounts Receivable or Accounts Payable menu, choose Document ® Reverse.

2. Enter the document number of the down payment request, the company code, and the fiscal year.

3. On the same screen, enter the posting date and posting period of the reversing document.

4. To post the reversing document, select Document ® Post.

The system displays a message that the line items have been reversed and records the clearing data in the line items.
