Loans and BSEG-XREF1


Dear all,

I have a question relating to a standard SAP functionality.

We would like to store the invoice number (external numbering) via a custom built program into the field BSEG-XREF1.

But when we execute the transactions FNV5 (disbursement of the capital to the customer) and FNM1 (make periodic postings on the customer), these standard programs seem to fill the XREF1 field with numbers like 1 or 3 or 15 or ... Mostly, actually 1 or 3.

Why it does this, I don't have a clue. What the 1 and 3 mean neither.

Now, my question is:

Does anybody know why these standard programs are putting these numbers into the XREF1 field?

Does anybody know how to "turn this of"?

I hope someone can answer my question, because I'm affraid loans is not that highly used/known?

[EDIT] Apparently, there is an OSS note existing which states not to change the field (664210)... But how does the field get enriched by the loan module & why ?

Many thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
