Search String for EBS

Dear SAP Experts,

I need to define search string for posting in to different GL Accounts like Debit Memo and Direct Debit.

I have configured "Define Search String for Electronic Bank Statement". Before this I did all standard configuration in "Make Global Settings for Electronic Bank Statement"

Issue: Since XXX bank is using this business transaction 699 for different postings/ scenarios (say for direct deposit, Debit Memo etc.). Business wants these different postings to go to different GL accounts.

Please explain in detail how to define search string for the above scenario.

Thanks in advance.

    Dear Expert

    instead of going search sting use below

    EBS User-Exits

    Exit ZXF01U06 through se38


    User-Exits are another advanced “configuration” technique that can be used to solve complex EBS problems

    OSS Note 494777 contains a complete listing and explanation of all EBS User-Exits

    Hi Patel,

    Please define unique text or number in search string field which you are getting in note to payee line of the bank file( e.g. line 88 or 16 for BAI format) for direct debit.

    You defined there (0000100002) but this number is not exist in line 88 so system is not able to identify note to payee line.

    Steps you need to define

    Create posting rule for direct debit.

    Assign algorithm 901 for step "Assign External transaction type to posting rule" for code 699 in OT83

    In search string put "DIRECT DEBIT" press enter.

    Change target field(DIRECT DEBIT) of search string with posting rule which you will define for direct debit.

    Click on "Search string use" folder and map it here with algorithm 901.

    Let me know if you have any further clarification.

    Hope it will work.
