No Funds Management invoice reference in the document splitting data

Former Member

We are upgrading our system from EHP4 to EHP7.

While Testing we are getting an error "No Funds Management invoice reference in the document splitting data"

Message no. FICUSTOM098


You have activated the online payment update in Funds Management and are posting an invoice without FM invoice reference in the document splitting.


This message normally only occurs for errors in system configuration. These include:

  • Using incorrect financial transactions (for example, financial transaction 50 for open item-managed accounts)
  • Incorrect customizing for document splitting

  This message should only be ignored in extreme emergencies. Even if the document can still be posted, the error that occurred will cause problems later on, such as: 

  • Missing updates of follow-on documents
  • Termination when posting payment document

It may be noted that the ONLINE PAYMENT UPDATE is ACTIVE in our system.

We did not got this error while we were on EHP4.

However certain checks have been activated with EHP7

To overcome this error it is asking to add characteristics to the existing Document Splitting set up.

But SAP does not recomend doing so.

Please suggest how to overcome this error

If commitment items used in this process are the same you were using under 6.04, then I'd suggest raising the issue to OSS. What split characteristics do you have currently? Are you using FMGLFLEX* or FAGLFLEX* scenario?
