  Dunning Activity Runs

Use

Once you have executed the dunning proposal run successfully, start the second subprocess of the dunning run – the dunning activity run.

Prerequisites

  1. You have successfully completed the dunning proposal run.

  2. You have carried out the preparations required for creating dunning letters (see Creating Printed Records ).

Features

This dunning activity run determines and executes the dunning activities defined in the dunning procedures and dunning levels. A dunning activity run refers to items to be dunned that were determined in a dunning proposal run.

If the dunning activity run carried out a dunning activity successfully, it sets the print date in the dunning proposal. The print date is the same as the run date.

If errors occurred during the execution of the dunning activities run, the system only sets the print date in some of the dunning headers. If the cause of the error is in the dunning proposal, you have to reverse the dunning notices concerned. If the cause of the error is in the dunning activity run, you have to correct the error and then start the dunning activity run again for this dunning proposal run. In this second run, the dunning activity run only processes the dunning notices that have not been executed yet, that is, dunning notices that have not received a print date (run date). If a long time has elapsed since the error occurred, SAP recommends that you reverse the dunning notices that have not been executed manually or using the transaction Mass Reversal of Dunning Notices and then start the dunning proposal run again.

If you run the dunning activity run in simulation mode, you can also test the correspondence creation. If you simulate a run again, but print after the first simulation run, in the second simulation the correspondence container is filled again and you can repeat the print. However, if you do not print between two simulation runs, the data in the correspondence container is overwritten and you can only print once at the end.

Activities

You schedule and start a dunning activity run in the same way as for a dunning proposal run. On the tab page General Selections , enter the run parameters for the dunning proposal run that you want to execute and then schedule the program run. For detailed information, see Functions for Scheduling Program Runs .

In the dunning activity run, you can revise the dunning activities defined in Customizing. In event 0351, you can add or delete dunning activities dependent on information from the dunning header (for example, business partner).
