Grouping vendor payments using Grouping key issue

Hello Gurus,

I created a new grouping key in config to be assigned to the vendor master (under Payments Transactions Accounting). The grouping key fields used were BUDAT (Posting Date) and ZFBDT (Baseline Payment Date). The automatic payment program should group payments to vendors based on this grouping key.

This solution works fine when the vendors have a negative amount in the automatic payment program run. However, if the vendor has a positive balance (due to payroll related adjustments), the payment program will not process the line item. Since we are grouping open vendor items by posting date and baseline payment date, the system treats this as a unique grouping key and is not clearing against any subsequent payment runs (because of different posting date and baseline date).

Is there a way to clear the positive balance without manual intervention? The solution works fine otherwise.

Thanks for your help.
