    Hi everyone,

    I need to enter the negative amount for one line in the prepayment invoice.
    example.

    Line1 200,000.00
    Line2 -5,000.00

    So the total amount should be 195,000.00

    But I got this error:
    APP-SQLAP-10678: You cannot enter a negative distribution amount on a prepayment. Please enter a positive distribution amount.

    Is this the standard of Oracle?

    Thanks,

    Hi Ying,

    Prepayment is nothing but advance payment to the supplier. So I didn't understood negative amount scenario in this? Can I know why you are trying to do negative amounts in prepayments?

    Hi Bharat,

    It's the advanced payment for progress project such as 10% of contract amount but there's 5% for the retention.

    e.g

    progress project (10%) 200,000.00
    retention (2.5% of 200,000.00) -5,000.00

    Then we will have the advanced payment 150,000.00

    Thanks,
    Ying
