[Koha] written off amount reflect in credit after return of book

Hi Vinod,

the Due date batch editing doesn't act like a renewal, it changes the
due date of the existing checkouts directly. So when they are already
overdue with an accrueing fine, the fine remains as accrueing and that
causes the credit on return. I'd recommend against using it for items
already overdue for this reason if your library is charging fines and to
manually renew those items first to "deactivate" the fines process.

i am not sure if there is a way to prevent the Credits now without
changing things directly in the database.

Hope that explains,
