EBS Search String Configuration help

Former Member

Hello,

I have a BAI format EBS that has an external transaction code 699.  Currently all the transactions from that external transaction code 699 posts to a single G/L account.  I have a requirement that the end user wants some transactions from 699 to post to G/L acct 123 and other transactions from 699 to post to G/L acct 456. 

I have found a search string in the bank statement that I can use to separate the transactions and have mapped it.  The current search string definition is "FR:CHECK" and I have mapped it to "MXXX" which is the posting rule I set up in Global EBS configuration to post to G/L acct 456.  All the other transactions from 699 use posting rule "MABC" which posts to G/L acct. 123. 

In the Search string use configuration I have the following settings "CoCd = 1234"; External transaction = 699; No Interpretation Algoritham; Negative Posting; Search string name = Test; Target field = Posting rule, and check mark for activate.

It is still not working and all postings with 699 still post to G/L acct 123.  What configuration is incorrect?

Hi ,

with reference to the requirement  go to the search string and simulate it to get the value of the search string FR:CHECK and then for the existing one use standard interpreatation algorithm

Thanks for your help Mahesh.  I figured out the problem a few hours after I posted the original request.  When I defined the Acct symbol of the G/L account to post to, I accidently set the currency to USD and the statement is in a foreign currency, so when the statement was processing, it was not posting those entries.  I switched USD to + and it works perfectly.

Thanks for your help.
