Before you start

The starting conditions listed in Adjusting Customer Payments must be met.

Follow These Steps

  1. Start 'Payment Received. Record' (ARS110/B).

  2. Select option Change for a detail record under FAM function AR30 to serve as an entry template.

  3. On the E panel, select one of the following alternatives:

    • To match records without allocating any new payments, enter 0 as the received amount
    • To match records and allocate new payments as well, enter the total received amount.
  4. Apply the information in the instructions connected to Recording Customer Payments to enter the other values on the E panel, when required. Press Enter.

  5. On the F panel, select an sorting order, when needed to identify the accounts receivable records to work with:

    • 1 = Payer
    • 2 = Customer
    • 3 = Invoice number
    • 4 = Quick entry
    • 5 = Group invoice
    • 6 = Sorted by due date.
  6. Enter the payer/customer in the panel header.

  7. When applicable, allocate the payment as usual using options 1 = 'Full payment' or 11 = 'Partial payment'.

  8. When the amount left to distribute is zero, use one of the following options for one or several records to release the amount to be matched:

    • 1 = 'Full payment'
    • 2 = 'Partial payment'. On the H panel, enter the partial payment amount and press Enter to return to the F panel.
  9. To match the amount left to distribute in the panel header, select one of the same options for one or several of the displayed invoice/on account records with an amount equal to the amount to match (but with reversed sign).

    The matched records are closed.

  10. When the matching is complete and the amount to distribute consequently is zero, press F3 to assign a voucher number to the voucher.
