Document that is generated automatically for each company code involved in clearing. A clearing document is generated in the following situations:
The document header is generated automatically; the system displays an indicator that there is a clearing document in place of the line item.
If clearing is carried out using a transaction for which no document type is defined, for example, customer clearing, a default document type is used for the document header. This is the same document type that is used when transfer postings are required for clearing, for example, because of different business areas in the items.
You define this document type under the clearing transaction Transfer Posting in Customizing. To do this, see the activity Define Posting Keys for Clearing in Customizing for Financial Accounting. See also:Configuring the System Using the Implementation Guide
