The error message F5155 might popup when tolerance group has not been properly defined for the user group to which you are assigned, and you are trying to enter an incoming invoice for that company code.

While this SAP error is not difficult to solve, it does require customizing access to the SPRO IMG, which might only be done by users with such access like functional consultants or system administrators.

If that is your case, if you have a  SAP IDES access   or another SAP testing environment, let's see how to solve the error message F5155.

Error: No amount authorization for customers/vendors in company code

When entering an incoming invoice in transaction MIRO (enter incoming invoice transaction), the error no amount authorization for customers vendors in company might pop up when trying to save basic data for that invoice.

It will be displayed in the info bar, at the bottom of the SAP screen, and will require customizing access to be solved.

First, let's have a look at the error message by double clicking on the error.

SAP error message F5155

The error message F5155 specifies that you are not assigned to a user group, and therefore have no amount authorization that applies: invoices are limited by this amount setup for each user group.

Without an user group assigned to a SAP user, the value chosen for the blank user will apply, and it might be the case that there is no amount yet setup for blank user.

SAP error message F5155: no amount authorization for customer/vendor line items has been specified in company code PL01 for the user group to which you are assigned. Provided that you are not explicitely assigned to a user group, the amount authorization to group blank is valid.

Create a tolerance group for users

In order to solve that issue, start by opening the SPRO IMG transaction, and navigate to materials management > logistics invoice verification > authorization management, and open there the define tolerance groups settings.

Then, double check if a tolerance group exist for given company code. If that is not the case, click on the icon to create a new tolerance group, and enter the company code for which the tolerance group will have to be created.

Change view FI tolerance group

Once the tolerance group has been created for the company code, you can select the various tolerances that apply to the group for the company code, and the currency in which it applies.

Upper limits for posting procedures

  • amount per document
  • amount per open item account item
  • cash discount per line item
  • permitted payment difference for revenue in amount, percent and cash discount
  • permitted payment difference for expense in amount, percent and cash discount

After saving, you will be back to the list of tolerance groups for user per company code, and will be able to visualize the new tolerance group created.

Save and transport the tolerance group

The last step is to save the tolerance groups for users, including the new one you have just created, before being able to proceed with invoice creation.

However, after clicking on save button, there will be one last step: you will be requested for a transport request, and then you can go back to transaction MIRO invoice creation!
