SAP ICMR - Intra Company Matching

0 Kudos

We need to perform Intra Company matching to remove records mainly reversed transactions. In ICMR we created a data source with leading and partner unit field as "Company". This allowed us to use a second data source which we used for Intra company matching for reversed documents. But there is a problem. These reversed documents still appear in our other matching methods with proc status as "00" despite being matched in the Intra co match method.

SAP claims this is standard behaviour. Then How do we have 1 common method for INTRA and Inter company matching??

Hi rambharadwaj, Matching method defines a data scope. The document items can be included in multiple methods and their processing status is method-dependent. For intercompany and intracompany document matching, the best practice is you have separate matching methods and define a reasonable scope (by using method-level filters) that includes only the relevant items. The reconciliation case (assigned to the method) can further narrow down scope by using display groups for the reporting usage (reconciliation overview and balances reports).

Best regards,

Hi Grace, i understand the scope and usage of filters. In our case the cfin is unable to capture document reversal information like (xreversed, xreversing etc) for logistics documents. This is std behaviour as per sap. Because of this we are unable to restrict documents from getting into Intra and Inter company methods.So lets say a "reversed" invoice document RE, which we matched in Intra method starts appearing in my inter company method as well. In the absence of xrevsred infomation unable to restrict.

Can ICMR do same side or one side matching? Can we have a method and its rule do a match in lets between Leading unit documents? I will have an inter company method but match such reversed documents in 1 sided match.

Hi rambharadwaj, I am not sure I completely understand the requirement. To do a match between leading units documents, you are right to set up with company as both leading unit and partner unit and use 2 data sources. Another way to exclude the document items is to set up a rule to bundle these items to an assignment using "Group as Matched" or "Group as Assigned" So that they won't be subject to matching with other rules. But to do that, you still need a criterion to filter these items.

Will check the group item option.

The challenge is that for logistics reversed (RE/RV etc) document the xreversed is not getting populated in CFIN. SAP says that only for FI documents reversed, xrecversed will be populated.

I used separate matching method with intra company match. It worked but the challenege is that these reversed documents appear in other inter company method as New records.

I need to match the regular document with its reversed using other fields in expression. How can i do with a single side Auto match?

I have to match the reversed document with its reversal doc. I realise that processing status is method dependent. So i have to combine intra and inter company matches in 1 method. In any regular inter company match method the data for unit appears on a single side. How can i "Auto-match" data in a single side?
