I understand that the algorithm used in FF_5 is used for clearing.

EBS File - Main Bank (Dr) & Bank Clearing (Cr) $100

Customer Payment - Bank Clearing (Dr) & Customer (Cr) - $100 Doc # with ref ABC

Now when I tried to upload the EBS file I entered doc # 1 & ABC in algorithm fields

As per my understanding the use of algorithm is when we enter doc # 1 system will clear the bank clearing GL.

I am using Algorithms as below -

Doc.Number (BELNR) interval

Ref.Number (XBLNR) interval

In my case when I uploaded EBS I got msg difference too large for clearing and I had to do the clearing manually.

Can you please help me to understand how I can use algorithm in FF_5 with an example?

Thanks in advance for your response

The interpretation algorithm in the selection screen on FF_5 are meant to read and interpret the "Note to Payee" of the bank statement.

For example - if the Invoice document number range is 18000000 to18999999 and the same range is entered in the Doc. Number over FF_5, then while bank statement uploading it would look for any document no. present between the specified range.

"Difference too large for clearing" - error occurs when either standard isn't able to identify any open item (doc. no./reference no.) for clearing.

I would suggest to cross check the information available under Tag 86 and also the External trans. type configuration (Interpretation algorithm) tagged to it.
