EBS Search String return values appear twice

Hi All,

I have constructed a search string as attached screen, however when I test the same, it seems to appear twice. This is causing a problem in the string usage. The number that I filter out is the document number on the basis of which I will trace the clearing document number. Interpretion algorithm to be used is:60.

Please Help.

    seems standard behaviour, shouldn't cause a problem

    The problem I am facing is with the document number that I am extracting through this string. I intend to use this document number and pull out the clearing/payment document number so that ebs can clear the open paid item in the outgoing bank gl. however this is not happening. I shall be so glad if you can guide me through pls.

    • Ok, the search string finds the INV number. If found you run interpretation algorithm 060 (seems to me you can link it directly te the operation code?)

      I looked in the code for algorithm 060 (FIEB_060_ALGORITHM). It selects from the BSAD with numbers found in the note-to-payee. So you will find the documentnumber already contained in the string and not the clearing document number I guess.

      Best Solution would be to include the clearing documentnumber when creating the payment file (F110) with a tag and use this when processing the statements. Pick this up with a standard algorithm and make a posting rule which clears the open item (outgoing payments)
