Hi,

The field TOTAL_AMNT specifies the invoice amount for which the postings have occurred in FI-CA. This figure need not be equal to the due amount to be paid by the customer. Because there might be some clearings that might occur during the invoice posting or any items that you do not wish to collect it from customer.

But this amount signifies the amount posted in FI-CA.

Thanks,

Sakthi.

Hi Sakthi,

Thanks for your reply can you tell me how can we find the exact due amount to be paid by customer. Is there any table for that or any other way.

Regards,

Surendra.

spoloju346:

The total_amnt field depends on the configuration of table TE529 as well as several events called during invoicing. The normal design would be that the total_amnt field contains the amount which represents the required payment - or the total amount requested from the customer. This would be net of open credits and debits, but can be customized depending on the requirements.

Hi,

Usually the consumer category (low tension/high tension) is maintained as part of the installation type that can be found in field ANLART of table EANL.

Hello,

By refeering to total amount filed in erdk one can not determone the category of the consumer. Category of the consumer can be determine by reate category defined at installation level.If you have differrent bill form for differrent rate category then in table erdk using field FORMKEY one can determine the consumer category.

Thanks,

Hi All,

Total_amt field in ERDK specifies total Current months charges by summing up Different Component like Energy charges + Fic taxGov Duty+etc. which will be finally Posted to GL a/c.Therefore Total_amt signifies current months total payable amount.

Hope this will help.
