Needed some help on automatic clearing of bank open items when processing electronic bank statement (MT940 format). When automatic payment is done through F110 , a DME file is created. In the bank statement config , the external transaction (NDDT) of HSBC bank is mapped to internal posting rule with clearing algorithm 019 - DME refrence number.
Bank in the MT940 statement must have BACS reference number.Usaually a 10 digit number if we use SAP delivered DME for BACS (GB_BACS). But this number does not appear in the file created. This can be seen in the details tab of the file. In the file created , there is another refrence which starts with SAPBACS00000xxxxx.(Note: a search string has been defined to pull the 10 digit numeric from this string). Earlier when i used to put this reference ..SAPBACS.... or the 10 digit number , open items used to be automatically cleared. Now it is not happening.
Does anyone have some more input on BACS items auto clearing during Electr Bank rec.
