Duplicity check in EBS upload (FF_5)

Hi Experts,

I am facing an issue with Electronic bank statements upload. One of my customer's bank regularly (one in 5-6 months) sends different bank statements with same numbers. They are not going to change their banking application and have an explanation for this (not important). Anyway, it causes problems to users. They are used to download all statements in one file and once this happens the whole upload fails on message FB772. I can change this message in OBA5 but I do not want to. I cannot turn the message FB771 off (I also wouldn't like to).

Has anyone experiences something like this? I can imagine the only conceptional and long-term solution would be to change the duplicity check - it is change the logic behind the message FB771 (not to control statement number but let's say a combination of statement number + another field)...

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ondrej

    We were also facing the same problem, so we had replicated FF_5 program with a ZFF_5 program where we are checking Statement Number+Opening Balance+Closing Balance. If the same statement is uploaded again system gives an error of duplicity.

    I hope this works out for you.

    • Hi Manish,

      thank you for your answer. Do you know where exactly in the programm RFBASM00 is this logic behind the duplicity check? I would like to avoid creating a Z copy of this whole programm. It is quite a big intervention.

    Hi Ondrej,

    I would try to find a BTE suitable for your needs. I.e. explore at least 2 following ones

    00002820 Bank statement - Change bank statement data

    00002850 Follow-Up Bank Statement: Change

    Best regards,
