Electronic Bank Statemen (EBS): Allocation Field

Hi masters,

When importing the electronic bank statement I am trying to "clear" automatically as much transactions as possible.

In order to do that, I am trying to configure the "Allocation" field consistently at F110 and at EBS import. I hope that, if Allocation field of payments/collections made in F110 are consistent with allocation field in the transactions posted by EBS upload, I could expect that many transactions will be automatically cleared by SAP.

I thought that the definition about how the allocation field is populated for certain GL Account is defined at GL Master Data: control data "Short Key" field.

I have configured "005" (Loc.currency amount) for the "interim account" used for both payment/collections in F110 and in EBS upload, but the results were not correct (or not as expected).

Does anybody knows how to configure the Allocation field for F110 and EBS Upload?

Thanks a lot in advance, and I hope my message can be understood...English is not my strength 😊

    Hi Rafael

    As far as my knowledge goes ( I have worked on EBS for Spain, Portugal, Norway, FInland, Sweden and Denmark) the Allocation keys functionality is new.

    So far I have used the XBLNR field and KIDNO field as a link to the note to payee information that is coming in EBS. Also there is an interpretation algorithm in the EBS settings which makes this possible and clear most of the customer and vendor and GL postings.

    could you please let me know from where you got the info on Allocation key or if possible give me a link.

      Normally when a customer billing document is created, the billing document plus customer account is updated in to the KIDNO filed.

      The customer when paying the amount intothe bank with reference to this KIDNO, we get bank statement with the info in the NOTETOPAYEE field and it will be used to automtically clear the customer open items.



      Assign points if this is useful
