 Evaluating Promises to Pay


You can evaluate promises to pay with the state Open once a specific period has passed. To do this, plan the program for evaluating promises to pay regularly.


In Customizing for Financial Supply Chain Management under Start of the navigation path Collections Management Next navigation step Receivables Processing in Accounts Receivable Accounting Next navigation step Make Settings for Promises to Pay,you have defined tolerance days for each company code for the evaluation End of the navigation path .

You can implement the Business Add-In (BAdI) FDM_P2P_JUDGE to refine the control of the tolerance days. You can also use this BAdI to override the standard evaluation with your own logic.


The program selects promises to pay with the state Open whose due date ( promised for date) has been reached or is in the past. For the standard evaluation, the system calculates a period within which the payment should be made. It calculates this from the tolerance days given and the promised for date. If no payment is made in this period, the promise is evaluated with Broken . If a partial payment is received within this period, the promise is evaluated with Partially Kept .

The log contains a list of the promises to pay that were selected. The log also contains information on whether the evaluation was carried out and what the result was.
