Definition of Search string to post Bank Charges to different Cost center, but when Cost element is the same.


Hello Friends - We are getting Bank charges in the Bank statement and once imported into SAP, they are posted to default Cost center maintained in OKB9.


I have requirement that When COMISION, COMISSION, COMMISSION, COM are found in Bank statement, Bank charges should not be posted to OKB9 Cost center and to be posted to Cost center specified in Search string instead.


I defined Search String: (COMISION)|(COMISSION)|(COMMISSION)|(COM) and did the set up on Search string use correctly. When I imported the Statement with the below 4 transactions, It is working as expected only for Transaction 035 and not working for 091,878,928, though COMISSION, COMMISSION, COM are found in the Statement.


Wirtschaftsmann provided his valuable inputs on this issue here http://scn.sap.com/message/15094683#15094683 as to how to define Search string.


The different I see between 035 and 091,878,928 on Note to payee is that String found in the 2nd line for 035 and for others, it is in the first line.


Can you please let me know if this causes the issue and I would like to know if it is possible to debug to find out the issue.


:86:035?00DEBIT BY INSTRUCTION?20/EI/1837616

COMISION TAR CRED ?21 00018


:86:091?00COM?20/EI/723359 TRANSFER.


:86:928?00COMMISSION?20/EI/2585 PAG


:86:878?00COMISSION TRANSF INT?20/EI/RFB 2014052000084404


Thanks

    Hi GT,

    Can you please check your uploaded statement in FEBRE table and see if the terms that you are looking for i.e. COMISSION, COMMISSION, COM etc. are coming in the note to payee for all the transactions. If it is not coming then the search string you have defined would not work. Please check and respond back then we can check further.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Gaurav

    • Hello!

      I'm not sure whether you can do this. It depends on the contract terms provided by your bank, if there is a clause in the contract accordind to which you can require additional information to be displayed in the text of note to payee, you can try to do this. For instance, I've encountered similar situation recently where bank doesn't provide any business transaction codes in the bank statement. However, when I read the contract terms, there was a clause that we can require the additional information to be displayed in the text of note to payee. So, I identified a list of different fixed texts that should be displayed in the note to payee text depending on the operation type (e.g. INPAYMENT, OUTPAYMENT, COMMISION, CASHWITHDRAWAL etc.). Now I'm waiting for response, but if bank will provide these texts there will be no problems with defining search strings.

      Best regards,

      The Wirtschaftsmann!
