Former Member

Hi,

I have done the configuration for check deposit and Manual Bank reconciliation and also done the process execution in FF68 and FF67 respectively.

Please let me know the following issues:

1) while executing the FF68 for check deposit, its posting but its not doing the post with clearing.

2) Need the additional configuration steps for electronic Bank statement and how to execute the process

3) Detailed steps for IDOC configuration and process and direct posing through BAI/BAI2 files. In this case little bit confusing for number of possibilities to post the electronic bank statement (like BDC, Idoc etc....)

My personal Email Id: *radhakrishnasap@gmail.com*

I will highly appreciate for immediate response.

Thanks & Regards,

RK

Hi Radhakrishna,

1) while executing the FF68 for check deposit, its posting but its not doing the post with clearing.

When you define posting rules.

1 0003 1 CHECKOUT 50 BANK SA 4 Checks out through clearing account

2) Need the additional configuration steps for electronic Bank statement and how to execute the process

EBS configuration steps.

Make Global Settings for Electronic Bank Statement

In this activity you make the global settings for the account statement. There are four main steps to be carried out:

1. Create account symbol

Specify G/L accounts (such as bank, cash receipt, outgoing checks) to which postings are to be made from account statement.

You assign account symbols to the G/L account numbers. These are required for the posting rules in step 2.

2. Assign accounts to account symbols

Define postings to be triggered by possible transactions in the account statement (such as bank transfer, debit memo).

In the posting specifications debit -> credit that you define here, use the account symbols from step 1, not the G/L account numbers. This prevents similar posting rules being defined several times, the only difference between them being the accounts to which postings are made.

3. Create keys for posting rules

Assign posting rules to possible transactions in account statement file.

A list of assignments where one external transaction code is assigned to one posting rule is called a transaction type.

4. Create a transaction type

Assign bank details, for which the account statements are to be imported, to a transaction type.

All the house bank accounts at a particular bank are usually assigned to the same transaction type.

Requirements

You have already entered your house bank data for the account details. You do this in the activity Define House Banks.

Create account symbols

In this activity you create the account symbols that you later need for defining the posting specifications.

Before the posting rule is used, the account symbols are replaced with the relevant accounts to which posting is to be made.

Example

Create the account symbols BANK and CASH RECEIPT so that you can later define a posting rule for cash receipt.

Activities

1. Define an ID for each account symbol.

2. Enter a description in the text field.

Assign accounts to account symbols

In this activity you define the account determination procedure for each individual account symbol.

Example 1

Assigning G/L account 113100 to account symbol BANK

Chart of accounts: INT (sample chart of accounts)

================================================= Acct

symbol Acct mod. Currency G/L account

BANK + + 113100

Example 2

To avoid having to define a separate account symbol for every single house bank account (with a different G/L account in each case), the G/L account field can contain a masked output:

Chart of accounts: INT (sample chart of accounts)

======================================================= Acct

symbol Acct mod. Currency G/L account BANK + + ++++++++++

Here, the account determination replaces the account symbol BANK with the G/L account number of the house bank account defined in the house bank master data.

The appropriate masking can also be used for the bank subaccounts.

Example 3

Standard procedure for defining bank subaccounts

Chart of accounts: INT (sample chart of accounts)

=================================== Account symbol G/L

account BANK ++++++++++ CASH RECEIPT ++++++++01 INCOMING CHECKS ++++++++09

You can influence account determination further by making entries in the Account modification and Currency fields.

Example 4a

You wish to manage incoming checks in foreign currency (such as USD) in a different clearing account to incoming checks in local currency (such as EUR). You can do so by making the following setting:

Chart of accounts: INT (sample chart of accounts)

=============================================================

Account symbol Acct mod. Currency G/L account

INCOMING CHECKS + + ++++++++09

INCOMING CHECKS + USD ++++++++14

Example 4b

You wish to process the business transaction "credit memo for rent" in a different account than is otherwise used for the credit memo posting rule. For this business transaction, you specify an account modification and the account to which posting is to be made (such as 99999):

Chart of accounts: INT (sample chart of accounts)

=============================================================

Account symbol Acct mod. Currency G/L account

INCOMING CHECKS + + ++++++++09

INCOMING CHECKS RENT + 0000099999

For the relevant transactions, you must also either make an entry in the field FEBEP-KFMOD in the function enhancement for the electronic bank statement (you do this in the activity Develop Enhancements for Electronic Bank Statement (General)), or use the search string search with the target field Account modification. You do this in the activity Define Search String for Electonic Bank Statement

Note

Note that masked entries (using +) are always based on a ten character account number. If you are using a shorter account number (six characters, for example), the entry must be right-aligned.

Create keys for posting rules

In this activity you enter descriptions for the necessary posting rules.

Each posting rule represents a business transaction from the SAP System that is included in the account statement, such as:

• Incoming check

• Credit memo

• Debit memo

• etc.

Example

You create the posting rule 0001 (cash receipt via interim account) for cash receipt.

Activities

1. Define an ID for each posting rule.

2. Enter a description in the text field.

Define posting rules

In this activity you create posting specifications for each posting rule. You use the posting specifications to specify how a certain business transaction (such as a credit memo) is to be posted.

Posting specifications consist of one or two posting records debit -> credit, where the first posting record is called posting area 1, and usually represents a G/L account posting (BANK -> CASH RECEIPT, for example). The optional second posting record is called posting area 2 (CASH RECEIPT -> CUSTOMER, for example).

Depending on whether a posting transaction affects bank accounting only, or also affects subledger accounting, define the posting rules either for the first posting area only, or for both the first and the second posting areas.

Example 1

For the transaction "check credit memo", you only need posting rules for G/L accounts because the customer account has already been cleared as a result of the check deposit. For a bank transfer, however, you will need a second posting area in addition to the posting rules for the G/L accounts in order to clear the customer account.

Activities

For posting areas 1 and 2:

1. Enter the posting type (posting or clearing G/L accounts or subledger accounts, reversing clearing).

2. Enter the accounts (that is, the account symbols) and posting keys for both the debit and credit sides of the posting record. Depending on the type of posting (clearing/posting), it may be necessary to leave the fields on either the debit or credit side blank. For example, with posting type 8 (credit clearing for subledger accounts ), the system uses the note to payee information to try to identify and clear an appropriate open item. In this case, there is no need to specify the account and posting key beforehand since they will be determined automatically during the open item search.

3. Specify the document type.

4. If required, make entries in the optional fields for compression, special G/L indicators, and posting keys for payment on account.

Example 2

Posting rule 0001

PArea PK (D) Account(Deb) PK (C) Account(Cred) DT PstType

1 40 BANK 50 CASH RECEIPT SB 1

2 40 CASH RECEIPT DZ 8

Create transaction types

In this activity you create the names and descriptions of the various transaction types you require. House banks that use identical lists of business transaction codes (external transactions) can be assigned to the same transaction type later.

Example

You create transaction type MC for account statements in MultiCash format.

Activities

Create the names and descriptions of the various transaction types you require.

Assign external transaction codes to posting rules

In this activity you assign (external) business transaction codes to an (internal) posting rule.

This means that the same posting specifications can be used for different business transaction codes.

Example

1. Business transaction code 004 is for debit memos by direct debit

2. Business transaction code 005 is for debit memos by automatic debit

3. Business transaction code 020 is for debit memos by transfer order

From the point of view of your organization, the external business transactions listed above use identical posting procedures and must therefore be assigned to the same posting rule (for debit memos).

The same posting rules can also be used for different bank details, even if different business transaction codes are used (if different file formats are used, for example).

Activities

1. For each transaction type, assign a posting rule to each external transaction key.

2. In the "/- sign" field, enter "" or "-" to indicate whether payments are incoming or outgoing.

3. If necessary, define an interpretation algorithm if open items are to be cleared automatically as a result of the posting.

The processing type field is currently only used for the formats BACS (England), BAI (USA), and BRADESCO/ITAU (Brazil).

Assign bank accounts to transaction types

In this activity you assign each of your bank accounts to a transaction type.

You can specify a worklist of G/L accounts. This enables you to search several bank subaccounts for open items that the system could not clear during posting of the account statement when you postprocess the account statement.

If you select the field No Automatic Clearing, an open item remains, even if the amount of the open item agrees with that in the account statement.

Example

1. In the account statements you receive from bank X and bank Y, the business transaction code 051 indicates that the transaction involves a credit memo. This transaction is represented by the posting rule 1000 in your organization.

2. Bank Z uses different business transaction codes from banks X and Y. A different posting rule should be used for business transaction code 051 in this case. It is also possible that a totally different business transaction code is used for credit memos for the file formats used by bank Z, and that posting rule 1000 must be assigned to this code.

In this scenario, you would use two transaction types: One transaction type for bank Z and another transaction type for banks X and Y.

In addition, you can assign each of your house bank accounts to a currency class. However, this setting is currently only necessary for the Spanish CSR format.

Activities

Assign your banks to a transaction type and, if required, to a currency class. The banks are identified by means of the bank key and the external account number.

I hope this help,Please assign points.
