lockbox configuration


I have a question regarding the OBAX transaction (define posting data)

Define Posting data

SAP IMG -> Financial Accounting -> Bank Accounting -> Business Transactions -> Payment Transactions -> Lockbox -> Define Posting data

Can anyone please explain me what does the data in the column "Destination" represent?

I know that in the column "Origin" we have the routing number i.e. the bank key.

      Yes, all details will be on the bank file. The name used is a combined decision made by client and bank. First 4 character represents the name of the client.These criteria is decided during the initial stages of setting up lockbox process. A bank will have several clients and each client's daily text file must be unique, so even though payment data changes client name will be an effective way for easy identification.It also helps the bank person who upload the file on the bank server since he will have to upload each file it to the correct client's account.

    usually the Destination is filled with your bank account number which is maintained at the House bank.

    it's okay if you don't maintain it this way. but remember that whatever combination of Origin and Destination you maintain the same data has to be there in the lockbox file you process.. otherwise you will get error.
