Clarification about rules used in credit check on the basis of overdue open items

73 Views

Hi all,


I open this post to ask if someone can help me to understand which are the rules used by SAP to consider, in a credit check control based on "overdue open items" (I speak about automatic credit control) how the different types of overdue open items are considered, to decide if a sales document have to be blocked or not for credit.


I have set a rule in which I check only overdue open item if are expired from more than 1 day (no one % has been set, instead).


During my test cases I have verified that:


If a customer have overdue open items, also if related to accounting document for bank receipt (RI.BA. is the italian word) that results as “Special G/L account transaction” in FBL5N transaction, and I don’t have any “Normal items”, a new sales document of this customer is checked and blocked by credit check.


Instead, if a customer have overdue open items, also if related to accounting document for bank receipt that results as “Special G/L account transaction” in FBL5N transaction and have also overdue “Normal items” with negative sign (like credit notes), a new sales document of this customer is checked but not blocked by credit check (it seems that the presence of a overdue “Normal items” with negative sign is enough for the system that doesn’t check if there are overdue open items in “Special G/L account transaction”).


If, other case, in overdue “Normal items” I have accounting documents related to invoice or debit note (with positive sign) together with overdue accounting document related to credit notes (with negative sign), the system will check the sales document for credit and decide to block or not the document depending if the bigger value is positive (block) or negative (no block). In a case like this, also overdue accounting document for bank receipt that results as “Special G/L account transaction” are taken into consideration together with accounting documents in “Normal items”


What I want to ask is:


a )Someone have verified something similar as consequence of setting “open item” credit check in automatic credit control, or have a different behavior?


b) Someone have detailed information or documentation about the behavior of this setting in automatic credit control?


Please:

  • Avoid to answer me with SAP standard help or customizing setting help (I have already read it)
  • Avoid to answer suggesting me to open a OSS note (I will do it if no one can help me in SCN)


Thanks in advance for any useful suggestion that you can give me.


Regards

Gianpaolo
