SAP FB08 reversal reason

A reason for reversal is mandatory, and these are the possible reasons:

- 01 Reversal in current period, meaning no big change on the general accounting, as the period is still open,

- 02 Reversal in closed period, which might have a big impact on that period and eventually the following ones,

- 03 Actual reversal in current period, meaning with negative posting if allowed by the system,

- 04 Actual reversal in closed period, meaning with negative posting allowed by the system,

- 05 Accrual/deferral posting, when the asset is not realized until a future date.
