I have a supplier invoice with different accounts in invoice line.

Let's say:

-Product A, I assisgned an account which type is Payable for 7.00
-Product B, account type is Regular for 5.00

When I'm going to Pay it and put CASH on Payment Method, Different Amount changes to 19.00. Can anyone help me figure out how this happen and why ? Thanks in advance 

Do you manage to solve? Same problem here.

You have assigned/allocated amount in the Voucher lines... Did you specify the amount in the Voucher also?

If no then the Write Off amount (basically difference amount) will be captured under it...

Well let me explain you with an example:

Say you have an invoice of 12500 INR
Customer is trying to make a payment of 12000 INR

In this case, the difference amount be 500 INR,

Now you have 2 options:
  1. Open
  2. Write Off
Either to treat it as open (meaning that customer will pay you back the remaining amount, thus pending balance will be carried forward)
Or you can Write off (meaning you are going to waive off the amount and close it)

Thanks Deep for you Answer but I'm trying to pay it in Full. For example. I have 2 products in my Invoice Line. -Product 1 costs 5.00INR and change the account with the account type of Regular. -Product 2 costs 7.00INR and change the account with the account type of Payable Total of 12.00INR I'm trying to pay it in Full. 12.00INR but upon changing the Payment Method in CASH, Difference Amount is changed to 19.00INR. I don' know how it happens. Do you have any Idea?

Well check the Journal Currency.., Voucher has the functionality to convert the original currency to Journal Currency while making a payment...

I checked the Journal Currency and it looks normal. Difference Amount changed only when I have an account type of PAYABLE on the invoice line. I've also tested an invoice and add a product in invoice line with a REGULAR account type, it does not change the Difference Amount. Please help
