 Entering and Posting Returns Automatically


Returns are entered automatically if the bank sends a data medium with returns or if an external system provides a returns file (see also Entering and Posting Returns Manually ).

Automatic posting of returns allows background processing (as batch sessions), which in turn results in higher data throughput.

Process Flow

  1. Enter the program run parameters for automatic transfer of returns (see Entering Parameters for Automatic Returns Transfer ).

  2. When the program is run, the data records from the application server file specified are read and checked. If the data records are correct, the system generates one or more returns lots .

  3. If you have set the appropriate indicators in the program run, the returns lots generated are closed and posted.

    1. When you post a return, a new open item is created. The use of this new item is dependent on the type of posting .

    2. The activities defined in the system for a returns reason and other activities are carried out (see Executing Returns Activities ).

  4. Edit any items shown to be incorrect during posting, and post them again (see Postprocessing Returns Lots Manually ).


Depending on the type of posting, the original receivables are re-opened, or new receivables are set. Different activities are executed depending on the system settings.

Any necessary entries were added to the returns history (see Displaying the Returns History ).

Note Note

If the program terminated during the automatic returns transfer, you can continue the transfer with a restart (see Program Termination: Continue Returns Transfer ).
