      Dear Kristof Schneider,


      Would you please share more details regarding the following topics?

      1. Negative Balance in Journal Entry Error
      2. Trigger Re-valuation During Reversal of Manual JEV

      I searched but I couldn't find the details. We need to know how it worked before the upgrade and how it will behave after the upgrade.

      Especially, regarding number 1 "Negative Balance in Journal Entry Error", I think we had this function before the 2302 upgrade, am I right?

      If there is any link, blog, video, or other information would you please share it with us?

      Dear Avazeh,

      thanks for your question.

      1. The Negative Balance in Journal Entry Error is a correction of an issue which we were notified by an incident. In rare cases when clearing an invoice with a payment a negative amount on the debit side of the journal entry for the clearing was possible. This should not be the case, if negative postings are not allowed in the set of books. This was corrected.
      2. The Trigger Re-valuation During Reversal of Manual JEV is related to a reversal of Manual Write-up/ Write-down for inventory. When this was posted to a past period and had inventory changes in follow-up periods no inventory revaluations for follow-up periods were triggered. This was corrected and now inventory revaluations are triggered for follow-up periods in such a case.

      I hope this clarifies your questions.

      Best regards,

      Dear Kristof Schneider,

      the New Home Design feature seemed to be a great idea, until we realized that it does not support the key user adaptation and therefore it deactivates the option to customized the layout (no more own company logo and company colors). First it seemed like a bug, but via an incident SAP support confirmed that this is really the case.

      Are you already planning on an improvement on the New Home Design or is the deactivation part of a general strategy to deactivate the use of own company logos and colors?


      Kind regards,
