How to determine the latest bank statement in FEBKO and FEBEP?

Hello, Colleagues:

Here we have the requirement to select the latest bank statement from FEBKO (statement header) and FEBEP (statement line item), the 'latest' means if there are multiple bank statements imported for one day (later one overwrites old ones), we need to reply on the latest one to read the latest information from bank. And further, the 'latest' one is not always the last one statement imported physically, because there is the situation that there are more than one statements sent from bank, but the importing order (by the company) is messed up.

Our current approach:

for example, if we want to get the latest bank statement overall, we get the entries in FEBKO with highest value in AZDAT (Statement Date), and if there are multiple entries in results, we select the entry with highest value in KUKEY (Short Key).

And it is the same logic used in SAP report RFEBKAMON01 for bank statement monitor.

However this logic cannot solve the case with messed up importing order as mentioned before.

Another candidate option is to leverage field AZNUM (Statement Number), which is entered according to the sequence of statement from business perspective. It looks like a perfect solution.

But, we checked some customer data sample, that there are some cases that value of AZNUM is blank, according to the logic above, those entries will not be selected out. Now the question is whether the entries with blank AZNUM are valid case or exceptional ones that we can ignore.

Can anybody offer some help to us here?

Thanks a lot.

BR, Lawrence

    Dear Lawrence,

    I think if you can write a logic including the Opening balance and closing balance of the bank account. We can get the latest uploaded file.

    since If the opening and closing balance is not matching in the file, system will not let you upload the bank statement.

    Generally if multiple files are uploaded in a single date, system will validate the sequence of upload via opening and closing balance, the closing balance of the previous file should match the opening balance of the next file to be uploaded in the system. hence incorporating this logic you will be able to get the latest upload file along with the field you mentioned above.
