The EBS file ,Invoice number is mentioned still system tries to clear based on WRBTR

Hi All,

In EBS MT940 file,in Tag 86 it has the invoice number populated but still the system is searching the invoice based on WRBTR.We have the interpretation algorithm 31 defined,can you please help as to when the field WRBTR will be used for search.

And also when the invoice mentioned in the file if it is already cleared,still system tries to search invoice by amount and if there is any other invoice for same amount for the customer,it clears it.We don't want the system to search by amount.So how can check why system is searching by WRBRT.

    The system takes the amount as selection criteria to find open items if the interpretation algorithm fails. The interpretation algorithm has

    not found a document so it takes the amount as clearing criteria.

    If you do not want system to clear with respect to WRBTR field then You need to change the customizing settings, if you do not want the open items to be cleared based on the amount, in cases where the interpretation fails.

    2. In SPRO, go to Financial Accounting-> Bank Accounting-> Business Transactions-> Payment Transactions-> Electronic Bank Statement-> Make Global Setting for Electronic Bank Statement.
    3. Click on the tab: Assign Bank Accounts to Transaction Types.
    4. Check the Flag "No Automatic Clearing" for the relevant entry in customizing.

    Have a look at below KBA.
