Converting EBS from BAI2 to CAMT.053 - Duplicate Mapping?

We are switching our EBS from BAI2 to CAMT.053 and have come across some duplicate mappings. For example: BAI 275 and 575 are ZBA Sweeps, debit and credit, so they post differently. When mapping to CAMT.053, we found both have the same Domain CAMT, Family ACCB, and Sub-family ZABA (CAMTACCBZABA).

How do I configure the SAP EBS to post to different Posting Rules? When I enter the configuration information the second time into SAP (field 'External Transaction') I get an error the entry already exists. Do I do something with the field '+/- sign' which is part of the table key? If so, what from CAMT.053 determines which is the debit and which is the credit?

I'm confused! What am I missing? Thank you in advance for any assistance!

It depends on the bank, sometimes there is a third level indicating the kind of transaction, first check that.

Otherwise the regular solution is to define searchstrings on keywords identifying the kind of transactions which switch to another posting rule.

Does the search string functionality work with the camt.053 format? I have not been successful to process camt.053 files using the search string setup in the IMG. It seems to only work with the MT940 format(BAI).

Can you offer some additional information on the search string setup as it pertains to the camt.053 xml files?


Hi Paul,

There is a mapping from XML to the normal SAP EBS stuctures (FEBKO, FEBEP and FEBRE). This is managed by the xslt translation FIEB_CAMT053_V2_TO_FEB.

Have a look at your current FEBRE tables is the text it contains the one you want to search in? If not you need to edit (or download from an snote) the transformation.

For text contained in the FEBRE tables searchstrings should work without problems.

I've gotten the answer to my own question. Within the XML file there was a field with a debit or credit indicator. This filed then linked to the SAP config field '+/- sign' allowing for different postings between what was the BAI 275 and 575.
