EBR Configuration BAI format - multiple posting rules for same BTC code

510 Views Last edit Feb 08, 2018 at 02:20 AM 3 rev

Hello Experts,

I'm hoping someone can give me some direction. I am working on configuration for all of our bank accounts. I have a couple of accounts where checks are issued from SAP using F110 functionality which I can easily clear using standard configuration including creating a Posting Rule using Posting Type 4 - Clear debit G/L acct and then assigning the BTC (475) to our Transaction Type. These banks also have checks that are issued outside of SAP and are recorded in the G/L using manual journal entries. There is no check detail to clear against. I am trying to figure out if I could use Search String functionality to configure BTC 475 "twice", once using the Posting Rule mentioned above and again using a different posting rule of type '1' - Post to G/L account. I've never used the Search String functionality so it's a bit confusing to me. I would want the search string to find the check numbers for the SAP checks by looking for a number LIKE '2nnnnnn' and the second Search String to look for non SAP checks by looking for a number LIKE '23nnn'.

I don't want or need (at least I don't think I do) to fill a "Target Field" since I already have the check number for the SAP checks and can easily clear them with algorithm 011.

Am I completely on the wrong track here? Are there other suggestions on how to accomplish this?

Thank you!
