Vendor clearing, Purchase Order History

Hi All,

We are facing a problem.

We are not able to clear a vendor invoice against down payments and balance payment. Pl see the below given example.

Down Payment Rs. 250 Dr.

Vendor Invoice Rs. 1000 Cr.

Balance Payment Rs. 750 Dr.

When we try to clear all these transactions together on F-44, its not allowing us. The error message is given below.

"Purchase Order History xxxxxxxx" will ne negative for payment.

Diagnosis of the same message advices to refer to ME23N and correct/post FI postings in order such that the purchase order history cannot be negative."

I verified the Purchase Order, if soft the purchase order postings on date basis, nowhere the the balance is negative for the said PO.

How to get rid of this problem..??

If anybody has any solution, pl help . . .
