Procedure documentation Grouping Customers and Vendors   Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

If you have a large number of customers or vendors, you can use the function Group customers or Group vendors when creating the balance confirmation.

You can find this function in the Accounts Receivable or Accounts Payable screen under Periodic processing ® Print correspondence ® Balance confirmation ® Group customers or vendors.

This program enables you to group your customer and vendor accounts in intervals of a specific size or in a specific number of intervals. The grouping can only ever be applied to one company code.

You could, for example, divide your customers into five equal-sized intervals. The system creates this grouping and then gives you a list of the interval divisions together with the number of customer accounts contained in each division. You can then create five different variants for balance confirmation program by simply entering in the Customer field the interval divisions created by the system. You can then let these balance confirmation programs run parallel in the background.
