Manufacturing a sub contracted item

While creating a purchase receipt i get the error :
Incorrect number of General Ledger Entries found.
You might have selected a wrong Account in the transaction

I am doing a purchase for a sub contracted item.

Item RM is sent to a sub contractor for manufacturing .

Steps followed

  1. Item RM is purchased using a purchase order
  2. Create a PO for ITem MA and use Item RM as the raw material ( BOM is created for Item MA with Item RM as the raw material )
  3. During PO creation , i have marked sent to supplier field as “YES”
  4. Save the PO.
  5. Clicked on Transfer -> Material to supplier
  6. Now did a PO receipt.
  7. After filling the quality template , saving the receipt.
  8. Get the error message "Incorrect number of General Ledger Entries found.
    You might have selected a wrong Account in the transaction "

Can you tell me how do i fix this ?

Is item RM the one that’s subcontracted? Or item MA?

You mention that you want to subcontract RM but then you’ve made the BOM for MA, so its a little hard to interpret.

Could you attach screenshots/GIF so that we can identify why such a notification is triggered?

Thank you for getting back.

RM is the raw material which needs to be supplied to the supplier for manufacturing MA.

Therefore i first procure material RM thro a PO.

I then created another PO for the " Item MA - Machining"

and choose supply raw material as “YES” and do a transfer to supplier transaction

(Attachment GL Error during PO receipt.docx is missing)

Item MA is subcontracted .

Item RM is supplied as raw material and in turn i expect to get Item MA.

Once I receive Item MA, I have some operations to do in house.

For now i am only trying out purchasing ITEM RM and then sending it to a supplier for manufacturing Item RM

The default material request type for ITEM MA is set as “Purchase”

Attached is the screen shot of the BOM.
