In F-43 and FB60 we have an option of block the payment, lock the payment etc. My client is trying to use this option to block the payments for a particular vendor. However, even after setting the option for Lock Payment or Block Payment the system allows the user to do the payment.
Please let me how this can be set in SAP, and what is the difference between Lock for payment and Blocked for payment.
You can set with the vendor master that a certain payment will be blocked for payment automatically. So when you have invoice for that vendor, ti will automatically default a payment block. Usually A. In order to pay it, you must remove the payment block in the document( invoice). Used bock for payment instead using lock.
Pls check in FK02 screen select vendor and give company code and in Company code data select Right Tick mark in Payment transactions Press Enter and in this screen go to Automatic pmnt transactions tab In Payment Block area Press F4 and select 'B' Blocked for Payment.
Lock for Payment
The "A" block key also has a special function: It is generally set automatically when a down payment is entered. For this reason,
you should neither delete the "A", nor use it for other purposes.
Block for payment
All regular invoices can set for block. FK02
Payment block reason defined at OB27
I have selected the manual payment checkbox in ob27. But still the payment posting is possible.
I have also tried, by selcteing the manual check box in ob27 and setting the payment block in vendor Master.
After this I started posting invoice.Here the payment block from vendor master should come as default in invoice entry, however the same is not happening and I am able to make payment using F-53 or F-58.
