Automation alternatives for FB1S

Former Member
0 Kudos


We are looking at building an automatic clearing solution alternative to F.13 that will clear items across company codes and across account types - G/L, customer, vendor items.

To put it another way, the selection screen would look much like F.13, however the functionality would have the sophistication of the manual clearing transaction FB1S (clearing open items).

Please let me know in case any solution approaches have been tried earlier on the same. Any leads would be helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Most custom solutions that I've created or seen use a Z-program to gather documents based on some criteria and then submit SAPF124 for each group of documents, since the open item clearing configuration is fairly limited in its scope. You just need to build in the logic for processing each type of account and then schedule the program accordingly.
