Introduction to the Generation of Discount Documents
This chapter describes the automatic generation of discount documents. This is an additional feature for Argentina which is not included in the standard R/3 cash discount functions.
The cash discount amount is determined (either automatically by the system by using the payment terms of an open item or by the user) during a payment transaction (in the online and in the payment program). When the payment is posted, an additional line item in the payment document is generated which represents a posting on the vendor/customer account. Also a new document, the cash discount credit memo, is posted together with and cleared by the payment document.
