Special G/L indicator F is not defined for down payment

Updated May 18, 2018

While creating down payment request (t.code f-47), I specified 'F' in Trg.sp.g/l ind check
box, the system thrown a message as,

'Special G/L indicator F is not defined for down payment'

Then I checked OBYR, there special GL indicator is available and I assigned GL accounts
for postings, I have done the required configuration but where I missed, I could not find
anyone have an idea to solve this issue,

    Hi Shailesh,

    Please make sure in Special GL indicator "F" is with transaction type "Down payment/Down payment request".

    If u check the properties of the Sp.Gl Ind F , It is not meant for the Downpayment , it is meant for the only request.

    At the time of Creating Request in F-47.. No need to mention F...

    Select A or respective indicator..... F will be derived or identified by the system automatically..

    Hi Shailesh

    I have the same problem as the person who poested this first. Both A and F are configured but F-47 refuses both and gives the same error that they are not defined for down payments.
    If I do f-48 I it post without the error. What could be wrong?
