Hi,

The above solution can help you to take the print out only for one time. If in case of emergency it rquire twice then above solution would not work. To change the message setting suggested in above solutino would take much time as this config change issue.

Another solution to this problem could be to intorduce table T9ARW. Tthis table stores the data for payment run ids for which output file is created. Thus once once we create out put file this table will be updated. If we want to create the file for second time we can delete the entry of payment run ID from table T9ARW for which we want to create payment fie for second time. To amke the changes in table entry is much easier with SM30.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Thanks,

Please elaborate the steps for another solution (other than config) . T9ARW does not exist in system.

Hi Sachin,

I think you can print the remittance advice as many times as you want by using the program RFFOAVIS_FPAYM. But yes the message error will not let you create new Payment medium file, which is what you want. But incase of emergency you can manually download the relevant payment file any time from F110 using path Environment>Payment medium>DME Admin, select the relevant line and hit the download icon, where you have the option to give your own file path to save. For this you need to have the file temporarily in the folder for few days.

As a design for my client we always route the payment file to a temporary folder (when it stays for 30 days), and every time F110 saves the file to this temporary folder, an ABAP script moves the copy of the payment file to a final folder used to send the file to the Bank, but the original file stays in the temporary folder for 30 days. So, we have 30 days to download the file if we need them in case of emergency. The duration of 30 days is enough because normally electronic payments are settled in a day or two.

Your other option will be to ask your local IT to archive a copy of the file before sending it to the Bank.

i am afraid I might not be a big fan of deleting the file itself from the table. Please check if it is not a compliance issue

Thanks

Hi Meir

Payment files are created only when you check the "Create payment medium" check box based on selection variants FBPM. And based on the print variant entered in F110 you can produce the remittance advices along wth payment files while doing the payment run itself if you have selected "Create payment media" option. But if your system is not configured for this, and you are using PRINTOUT buttom to create RAs then you should not use create payment medium check box during payment proposal or payment run to avoid duplicate payment file creation.

"Create payment medium" check box appears when the payment proposal or payment run button is clicked in F110

Thanks

Ron

Using PRINTOUT option to create payment file NOT checking "Create payment medium" check box during payment proposal or payment run in F110...works fine.

However if accidently someone hit "PRINTOUT" twice ..it created duplicate file. Is there any way to restrict it? (may be with run date/ run id etc in user exit.) ...

Use T-code OBA5, Enter Application Area BFIBL02, Change the status of message number 166 from SWITCH OFF "-" to ERROR "E".
