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

There are a number of ways by which you can display down payment requests:

You can display the document containing the down payment request. This function is the same as the standard document display.

In contrast to other documents, however, the document contains no offsetting entries.

To display the line items from the customer or vendor account, choose Account ® Display line items from the Accounts Payable or Accounts Receivable menus.

In the initial screen you determine which line items are to be displayed. For special G/L transactions, you select With special G/L transactions.

If you want to display down payment requests only, you can select them via the selection function using the special G/L code Q . Down payment requests are displayed in a separate set. You recognize down payment requests by the posting key, the special G/L indicator, and the category of the special G/L transaction.

You can call up the special G/L account for down payment requests where the down payment requests are managed as line items. To do this, you must choose Account ® Display line items from the Accounts Payable or Accounts Receivable menu.


You can also display down payment requests from the alternative reconciliation account (special G/L account) instead of from the customer or vendor account. The system will then display the down payment requests for all customers or vendors belonging to that reconciliation account.

Further information on displaying documents can be found in FI - Document Posting. Information on displaying line items can be found in Account Balances and Line Items.
