Posting down payment

Posting down payment what is the common practice?

Is it reccomended to post down payment to an Alternative G/L account or using a Special G/L indicator in the Line item?

Your answer is highly appreciated.

Both really are the same.

You use a Spl GL indicator to post to an alternative recon account. The Spl GL determines a different account than the one specified in the master.

There are additional things you can do by using the Spl GL, you can modify how the posting screen appears by changing the field status group. You can align authorisations etc etc.

Thus a large majority uses Spl GL, rather that specifying an alternative GL account.
