Extracting Data from an External System

The communication structure of the general billing interface distinguishes the following fields during the transfer of data from an external system:

  • Required fields, which must be transferred

  • Optional fields, which may be transferred, or fields which are determined from available master data in the system during the billing document run

Report RVAFSS00 in the standard system illustrates how the function module in the general billing interface can be used efficiently.

As in the above sample report, we recommend that you install a check routine to check the sequential file for correctness and to display any incorrect records. The sample report shows how to create an appropriate sequential file. Display it using sample report RVAFSS02.
