The specifications are required for posting the clearing document.


Default data is proposed for posting parameter related items. This data is required to create the clearing document:

  • The clearing reason and the document type are entered as default values based on the settings in Customizing (see IMG structure: Start of the navigation path Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable Next navigation step Basic Functions Next navigation step Open Item Management Next navigation step Define Default Values for Account Maintenance End of the navigation path ).

  • The system proposes the current date as posting date.

  • The values last entered by the user for the currency and reconciliation key are provided.

  • The system creates a clearing proposal if desired (see Automatic Assignment of Open Items ).


Check, overwrite, and add to the default values as needed. If you have not already done so, enter the selection criteria (see Selecting Open Items ).
