Invalid Account Code error when posting AP Credit Note

Dear Experts,
I hit this error message when posting an AP Credit Note based entirely on an existing AP Invoice (nothing was changed in the credit note).
Invalid Account Code [Message 173-9]
I have found 2 notes, but I dont think they're relevant
[Note 1311905|https://websmp230.sap-ag.de/sap(bD1lbiZjPTAwMQ==)/bc/bsp/spn/smb_searchnotes/display.htm?note_langu=E&note_numm=0001311905]

Please help!

Dear All,
I found the solution!
In my AP Invoice, there was a Rounding amount, but when I copied over to AP Credit Note, the system unusually set the Rounding amount as $0.00 and copies the Rounding amount to the Discount field instead.
**The "Invalid Account Code" error happened because I did not set GL account determination for discounts scenario.
So what I did was I cleared the Discount field in the Credit Note, and enter the rounding figure into the Rounding field again. Then, the AP Credit Note was able to go in Successfully!
Thanks guys.
Warmest Regards,
Chinho

  • Error code (invalid account code - Message 173-9) Create Credit Note

    When you register a credit note in parts, the system produces the following error message:
    Invalid account code - Message 173-9
    This error only occurs when attempting to fully register on the bill pending items
    We have SAP Business One ver 8.81 PL08.
    Thanks a lot for your information,

    Thanks Jitin
    I do not see any fixes for that particular issue on PL 49 but Iwill test it on a newer patch level.
    I have run the query in note 1090457. "Reconciliation difference must be zero before reconciling [Message 3821-8]"
    Although the error message that the note refers to is different than the error message I am getting the query does return several transactions. When I omit the transactions detailed by the query when reconciling the account the internal reconcilliation works.
    Strange....

  • Invalid Account Code Error In Prod. Receipt

    Hi,
    While making production receipt system throws the error like " Invalid Account Code Message [173-9]". We've checked thoroughly G/L account determination(G/L mapping). This is happening for only one item, remaining items are ok. What is the reason, if any one knows please explain.
    Thanks in advance,

  • Account Assignment Error When Posting GI Against Sales Order

    Hello SAP Experts,
    We are currently experiencing a problem during goods issueance against sales order (VL02N). The system terminates the issueance and gives error:
    "Account XXXXXX requires an assignment to a CO object".
    We have tried maintaining the GL account in OKB9 and assign a default profit center there but i didn't work. The material master also contains the profit center. We were only able to post the transaction if we try to default the a cost center in FS00. However we dont want to assign a default cost center as cost centers differ by plant. We are wondering why it asks the cost center considering that it already contains the sales order assignment. We checked the field selection of the GL account, movement type and even the posting key and all showed that the cost center is not required. We are now in a dead end situation here. Please please help us.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Praveen,
    Thank you for your immediate response.
    What confuses me is the fact that it asks for a CO element when in fact it is already assigned to one (it is goods issuance against sales order). Do you know why is the system behaving that way?
    Thanks!.

  • Invalid Account Code Message 173-9 when posting Outgoing Payment

    When attempting to post an Outgoing Payment our customer recieves the following error: Invalid Account Code Message [173-9].  The local currency is CDN and Invoice currency is US.  The error occurs only when back dating the outgoing payment to Jan 31, 2011 on Posting, Due and Doc Date.  If the Posting/Doc date are left as the current date and the Due is set at Jan 31, 2011 then there is no issue.

    Thanks for the patience.
    We have received the below update from the Licensing Team.
    You received your permanent key in respect of these licenses - the key is  for Crystal Reports Server XI.
    You did not purchase these licenses for Crystal Reports Server, but purchased it for Crystal Reports and a 5-named user license for Crystal Reports was included as a special offer.  The software included was version XIR2, but you elected to use version XI instead and received key .
    You would need to enroll the licenses in maintenance if you want to upgrade them.
    In case of any queries please create a ticket via the Service Market Place.

    Please help us to resolve the issue as early as possible.
    My contact number:
    If you need any further information do let me know

    Ajit,
      By design, the product is not able to be installed under the superuser account.
    1.  Create a new user and specify a home directory for the user without a quota set.
    2.  Copy or move the installation files to a directory that the new user can read.  I suggest you move the installation files directly into the new user's home directory.
    3.  Logon as the new user (or su - newuser)
    4.  run the installation shell script using that new user's account.
    NOTE:  Ensure the system meets the requirements from the supported platforms documents.

  • Landed Cost - Invalid Account Code

    Hi ,
    I have checked properly that each and every account is mapped correctly .
    But when i perform that operation there comes an error : 'Invalid Account Code '
    Is there any more declaration needed . Please suggest me what to do ?
    Thanks
    Ashish

    Hi Ashish.....
    Whichever accounts you mapped into the Freight screen you just check tose accounts whether they are proper or not. Just check those accounts are present in your Charts of accounts or not because sometimes we delete the account but there code remains as it is in settings screen because of which we get unwanted errors......
    Try to put the currency of all the accounts All Currencies.

  • Invalid Account Code

    Hi All,
    We cut TDS on account in previous year.
    In current year we book an A/P invoice and in outgoing payments window when we select that invoice system gives us the error
    "Invalid Account Code ".
    We tried cancelling A/P Invoice by copying to A/P Cr Memo but system is not allowing that too.
    Thanking you
    Malhaar

    Hi,
    Can you check the Account codes involved in the Invoice transactions, whether you can access them. Also, check the tax accounts, freight etc?
    Have you checked whether creating a Payment on Account for the Invoice and after that doing an Internal Reconciliation in the BP Module > Internal Reconciliation help you with the issue (If this is asigle document affected by the issue)?
    Test the above in the COPY of the database.

  • Invalid File Name Errors when syncing to Ipod

    Ever since an update last fall I have been getting Invalid file name errors when I try to sync my ipod. A window would pop up saying "Windows could not copy 'SONGNAME' to the iPod 'IPODNAME' because an unkown error occurred (-37)." I would press OK and another window would immediately pop up that would say, "Attempting to copy to the disk 'IPODNAME' failed. the file name is invalid or too long."
    The windows would keep popping up countless times until the sync would just seem to time out and stop.
    The problem songs would have no problem playing in iTunes.
    Prior to the update this did not happen. No new songs were added around this time and nothing was changed to my file directory structure. I was too busy to troubleshoot this problem at the time and hoped that another update would fix it. Well, here I am many months and updates later and still no fix. After fiddling with iTunes and resetting my Ipod multiple times (goodbye saved angry bird games)I have found out that:
    1. By writing down the file name when the error windows pop up I can get a partial list of the problem file names. I could not get a complete list of the problem files because the sync would time out before a full list could be compiled (the list appears to be in the hundreds).
    2. If I changed the name of the file by adding OR deleting one character, remapping the song in itunes, the song would then sync properly.
    3. If I changed the name of the file, remapped the location of the file within iTunes, changed the name of the file BACK to the original name that iTunes supposedly had a problem with, and then remapped the location of the song within iTunes, the song would then sync properly
    4. If I moved the song to a different directory without changing the file name, remapped the song within iTunes, the song would sync properly.
    5. If I moved the song to a different directory without changing the file name, remapped the song within iTunes, moved the file BACK to the original directory, remapped the song again, the song would sync properly.
    6. If I renamed the file and then named it back to the original file name WITHOUT remapping the file location in iTunes, the song would still not sync properly
    7. If I moved the file into a different directory and then back again without remapping the file location, the song would still not sync properly.
    8. Changing or deleting the tags has no effect at all.
    9. File name lengths are already under 200 characters and there are no special characters used.
    So, to sum up, I have found out a way to fix the issue. The problem is, that there are hundreds of songs that appear to be affected and renaming or moving every single one individually and then remapping is extremely inefficient and ignores the cause of the problem. I also did not want to delete the itunes library and then add all of the songs back in because I have many custom playlists that I have spent hours creating and I do not want to delete them.
    Is there a better way to fix the problem? Especially if someone knows the root cause?

    I got a procmon log file and examined it. I have the file and I could also provide you with that or screenshots of it.
    There is nothing unusual about it. I can see entires in which CR has successfully opened the report and has cached in a c:\windows\temp.
    However there is one or two non-successful entries that may be related, especially that examining the stack trace brings us to a call to get_ProductLocaleID():
    - A call to read reg entry HKU\S-1-5-20\Software\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\Crystal Reports\Locale fails with NAME NOT FOUND.
    - immediately after that and from the same process (w3wp.ex) there is a call to open directory "c:\" which is logged as ACCESS DENIED.
    Any subsequent unsuccessful calls seem to be results of exception handling in the debug code.
    Does this point to any setup issues with CR? We always run the redistributable x86 runtime when installing it.

  • Error when posting IDoc *** in system ERP100

    Hi Experts!
    Can you pls help me with a goods receipt issue?
    When user tries to make a good receipt on a PO, we have the msg "Error when posting IDoc *** in system ERP100" in SRM front-end application monitor.
    The same msg is getting displayed in RZ20.
    On the idoc itself in tcode WE02 however, I can't see any problem and unfortunately I have no access to the same t-code in R/3. Anyway, I don't see the GR on the PO.
    What can be the reason for this problem please?
    What is in general the way to analyse and solve this kind of issue?
    Thanks a lot !!
    imre

    Hi,
    First find out the PO number from the idoc in tx WE02 in SRM system. Then in ERP , transaction BD87 , specify the details like message type and the system information .... and find out the PO that was errored out for GR. From this we can find the cause of the error. First try to rectify the error and then run the report to clear the contents of  BBP_DOCUMENT_TAB.
