Payment Update Online (Former Budget)

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi All Gurus,

I'm currently implementing EA PS (for SAP ECC 6.0) now it's on DEV and QAS. I have marked "PaymentUpdate online" for checking payment for assigned budget. when I check the standard report "FMRP_RFFMAV01X" to check assigned annual budget, the report shows the value type PR,PO,Invoices correctly but no payment document that was posted via AP module (but the report shows payment document that was posted directly via GL module).

<u>example that shows in report</u>

commitment item : XXXXXX

Funds Center : XXXXX

Distributable budget : XXXXXXXX.XX

<u>value type text </u> <u> RefDocNo</u> <u>Item</u> <u> pstg d.</u> <u> Cmmts/Act.</u> <u>Document Text</u>

Purchase Orders 50XXXXXX 10 12.12.2007 10,000.00

Invoices 61XXXXXX 2 12.12.2007 30,000.00

Payments 72XXXXXX 1 12.12.2007 10,000.00 --> this payment document is GL document (GL document number started with 72, Vendor payment document started with 65)

I tried to use Tcode FMF0 to transfer payment but for ECC6.0 the system doesn't allow to process.

Anyone can suggest me , did i forget to configure in some screen???

Thank you and regards,

Hi JSG,

You are in ECC 6.0 and you are still wanting to use former budgeting. Why?

You have to activate BCS in order to have payment update online.

For FBS you have to run RFFMS200 and not to tick online payment.

If you want to change to use BCS and have online payment tell me here thera are many people to help you even it is complicated to implement BCS.

Best regards

*******************************************

According to the available documentation in help.sap.com, for activation of Payment update online :

As of release mySAP ERP 2005 the online payment update is used to transfer payments to FM in real time, in other words when posted in FI. If the conventional payment selection has already been used, it must continue to be used, in other words, the online payment update cannot be activated. Currently, data already posted in not migrated.

Prerequisites

· The online payment update requires the activation of the new general ledger and document splitting. For more information on this, see the RKT documents under ”mySAP ERP 2004: Learning Map for Financial Accounting Consultants“ (pay special attention to the chapters “Introduction to New General Ledger in mySAP ERP 2004“ and “Document Processing“) as well as ”mySAP ERP 2005: Learning Map for Public Service Industries“.

Therefore, the use of BCS is not mandatory, although SAP's recommendation is to use BCS as one of the best business practises

I hope this helps to clarify...

Regards, Mar

Dear NDUWAYEZU SALVATOR ,

Thank you for your support, i used former budgeting because i just familiar with these only and i don't have knowledge of BCS anymore. Now it's in integration phase test then i think i have to solve this problem further. If i still implement former budgeting, do you have any ideas for update payment?? or i should unmark "payment update online" in PRD system. i asked user already that invoice and payment always have the same amount but i'm not sure that if there's some SA payment document, it will show "Payment" in the report or not?

Please suggest and i appreciate lots for your help.

Thank you.

Dear NDUWAYEZU SALVATOR

I have posted OSS notes to SAP and got the reply back and now i can deactivate the paymentonline update. The solution of this issue is just set the messages no 053 to warning (Public sector Management -> Funds Management Government -> Basic Settings -> Change Message control)

Thank you a lot for your support.

The problem of activation/deactivation of Payment update online is solved.

JSG: However, I recommend the review of the help.sap.com for ECC6.0 as you will find a lot of very helpful information regarding to Payment Update online.

Kind regards, Mar.

Dear,

I also have a problem with this update; when I execute program RFFMS200 (working within ECC 6.0) i have the following message "Refer to note 360667" !!!

Very strange because this note is not concerning version ECC 6.0.

Can you help me ?

I use another ID to reply you.

As i found the problem mentioned above. You can follow it by change the messages control if you change the status of "payment update online". If it's not clear then you can ask again.
