 Processing of Open Items


The following functions have been added to enhance the processing of open items:

  • You can freely select open items now in account maintenance (transaction FP06) and in the transactions for manual posting (FPE1) and for making mass changes to documents (FPE2M). You can select essentially using all fields of the line item (structure FKKOP). The exceptions are those fields that are available on the initial screen or are contained in repetition items.

  • During processing of open items, for example in account maintenance or when you assign open items to incoming payments, you can display a larger number of columns than before by using the maximum screen size.

  • If you use line layout variants for entering business partner items during manual posting of documents, you can now display eight customer fields of type CHAR at the same time within a variant, instead of only five up to now. You can also use these variants in the document display.
