How to clear SD downpayment requests


In my client location we use F-28 to clear downpayment request, but as per standard SAP it looks like we need to use F-29 to clear SD downpayment requests.

When i use this F-29 to clear SD downpayment requests system posted 19A posting Key and cleared. in Sales order doc flow DP was cleared, but when i create final invoice could not find any DP settlement lines, DP amount was also not reflected in my final inovice hard copy.

Where as when clear it using F-28 everything is fine in SD and in FI.

Only difference i found between F-28 and F-29 is in F-29 system not updated Assignment filed with DP document number where as in if i use F-28 i cud notice DP filled in under assignment field.

What is the standard SAP process to clear DPs ? If someone uses F-29 to clear SD documents will they are reflecting in your final invoice? If you find assignment filed filled in pl send me the screen shot of it and also pl let me know Technical name of that SD/FI link field so that i can check in my system if anything preventing to update that field?

Need your help.

Thanks and reg

As per SAP Note 213852, F-29 should be used to clear the DP requests.

Once the intial screen details are filled, please use the button "Requests" instead of hitting "Enter". This enables you to assign the payment to the correct DP item.

Hope this helps.
