For information on how to create and change forms, refer to the documentation on SAPscript word processing. The following is only a description of the special features to be observed regarding dunning forms.

To ensure that the forms are printed correctly by the print program, the position of each group of data in the form is predefined in the system. The form layout is defined with SAPScript.

You can use just one form or several different forms for the dunning notices in your organization. You specify the form when you configure the dunning program, depending on the dunning procedures, the company code, and the account type involved. You can further differentiate selection by dunning level (see the figure below, (1)) and dunning area (see the figure below, (2)), and separately for legal dunning proceedings (see figure below, (3)).

You need different dunning forms if you

You do not need different dunning forms if, for example, you have defined the dunning procedure so as to dun with different dunning frequencies. You can also use the same form if you want to dun in different languages. You only need to translate the texts of the form to do this. The forms are stored by language key. In each case, the print program selects the form in the language entered in the master record of the business partner. If the form is not available in this language, the system uses the default language of the form. In this case, the dunning program issues an error message in the log for the dunning run.

If you use the same form for several company codes and dunning procedures, you only have to specify the form once. For the company codes and dunning procedures that use the same form, refer to the reference company code (see Company Code-Specific Specifications: Figure (3)), or the reference dunning procedure (see Entering Grace Days and Minimum Days in Arrears) .

The form can only be maintained for this company code or this procedure.


The reference dunning procedure for the forms should only be used for procedures that have the same number of dunning levels.

You can enter one list name per dunning level. The dunning notices are then stored under this list name in the SAP spool. This makes it possible to store dunning notices from different company codes or with different levels separately in the spool.
