 Determining Selection Criteria Automatically

Use

To reduce the number of items requiring clarification, selection criteria such as business partner or contract can be automatically determined during the transfer of payment data as follows:

  • In the case of a standing order (can be identified by the BFKKZP-XDAUB = "X" field), the system first checks whether a standing order belonging to the same bank account with the same entry in the note to payee has ever been clarified.

  • For other payments and for standing orders that have never been clarified, the text in the note to payee is analyzed to derive selection criteria such as business partner, account number, contract number, or document number.

If the structure of the ordering terms and thereby the rules for determining the selection criteria are company-specific, you can determine the selection criteria in a customer-specific function module.

Prerequisites

In order to be able to determine the selection criteria automatically when transferring payment data, the following prerequisites must be fulfilled:

  • The selection criteria do not already exist in the dataset transferred.

  • You have defined the interpretation rules for the analysis of the note to payee field in the Implementation Guide for Start of the navigation path Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable Next navigation step Business Transactions Next navigation step Payments Next navigation step Incoming/Outgoing Payment Processing Next navigation step Define Interpretation Rules for Note to Payee). End of the navigation path In the activity Test Interpretation Rules for Note to Payee , you can test these settings, even if you have not carried out a payment run yet.

  • In order for the system to check whether a standing order was ever clarified, there must be an “X” in the BFKKZP-XDAUB field.

  • In the Implementation Guide for Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable : Start of the navigation path Program Enhancements Next navigation step Define Customer-Specific Function Modules End of the navigation path , you have not defined a customer-specific or industry-specific function module for event 0950. If the industry-specific function module is not to be used, define the standard function module FKK_SAMPLE_0950 as a customer-specific function module.

If you want selection criteria to be identified as installation-specific, program a function module and define it for the event (see the Implementation Guide for Start of the navigation path Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable Next navigation step Program Enhancements Next navigation step DefineCustomer-Specific Function Modules). End of the navigation path This, however, renders the SAP function ineffectual.
