I am trying to execute APP for a Vendor, who is also Customer. I have done the below settings.
* Ticked Customer in KZ, Vendor in DZ Documents in OBA7.
* Created Payment Method for Incoming Payments ("I" (Incoming Payment Method) and linked the same to Company Code.
* Assigned the Payment Method in Customer Master Data.
* Maintained Required settings in Bank Determination for Payment Method "I" (Incoming Payment Method)
Posted Invoices for both Customer and Vendors. When I executed APP, in Display Proposal List, Line item of DR, has the message that "no payment method exists".
Pls let me know if I missed out any steps.
What is sense of this?
"Ticked Customer in KZ, Vendor in DZ Documents in OBA7."
1. APP does not use these document types.
2. KZ should be used to post vendor and DZ should be used in customer payments.
did you check the indicator in customer master where you have assigned payment method.:
Please note that as per standard system behaviour which is also explained in notes 305414 and 164835, all the fields the structure ZHLG1 have to be equivalent otherwise the grouping
will not take place. So please check if the customer and vendor line items can be grouped.
Also you have mentioned that you are using "I" (Incoming Payment Method), is it that once the vendor and customer items mentioned are grouped would the balance be positive or negative? Please use incoming or outgoing payment method accordingly.
Hope this information helps
Thanks. The above issue is resolved.
Another issue related to this is that netting.
I have posted 10,000Rs AP Invoice and 6,000 Rs for AR.
When I ran APP, Its picked up both invoices successfully. But, Netting did not happen.
SAP issued clearing documents separately for both of the invoices. Because of that, Check is getting generated for Rs 10,000, instead of 4,000Rs.
Dear SAP 1729,
Please be kindly informed that there are a lot of factors that affect the grouping of items:
Stucture ZHLG1 fields that should coincide, Grouping keys, ,separate payment for business area, individual payment flag in FBZP, payment per due date and so on.
I hope this helps.
Check these settings:
These notes mainly talk about grouping of documents. As I had mentioned earlier in response to your question about how netting or grouping takes place,
You can pay open items together using the automatic payment transactions, but only if certain fields are identical. The structure ZHLG1 specifies these fields. Important fields are:
- Payment method in the item
- Bank details in the item
Please check if the fields mentioned in the structure ZHLG1 are identical in case of both documents which you are trying to group, even if there is a mismatch in one field (say for example payment method) then documents will not be grouped together.
Hope this helps.
