Clear negative outstanding payable

I am trying to clear account payables on negative outstanding payable, but unable to do so.


Here are my attempts:
• use journal entry, add row, add account receivable on credit with JE as reference with JV voucher code and I receive error message
“For <>, only debit accounts can be linked against another credit entry”

• use journal entry, add row, add account receivable on debit with negative value with JE as reference with JV voucher code and I receive error message
"Against Journal Entry <> does not have any unmatched credit entry

• use payment reconciliation tool, I cannot select invoice number, same case with this Clearing Accounts Payable thread

Is there other way to clear this? Thank you

It appears that other payables are cleared using payment entry before.

In order to use payment reconciliation tool, you need to have outstanding payables.

@Tej
Can you explain how you solved this problem?
We have a lot of negative outstanding, not able to knock it off using JV

In my case, it is something that is overpaid, or advance payment.
