ACH - Incoming File!

Hi Sappers!!

I would appreciate if someone could provide some inputs on the following issue on ACH payments.


We send ACH file to bank for effecting payments. Bank (Citi) processes the file and logs the items that have error for eg: amount error, routing number error etc..Then it creates a file in ACH format called Return Item File (RIPF) which contains a list of items that got rejected while processing.


Do we need to upload RIPF in SAP. If yes, then how can we upload this information in SAP.

Appreciate your time!!

    Hi Vj,

    Based on the information you provided, the RIPF file gets created/generated whenever there is some incorrect info, which would be wrong amount ( in the sense that the amount is not in the place it should be), which i guess should be corrected by the print program which generates the original ACH file. In case of other errors like routing number error, you would have to check the logic behind the payment program - Most probably that would come from the house bank i.e used in the payment program, so that would be a master data correction.

    In other words, you need not load the RIPF file into SAP - However based on the inputs from RIPF file, you would have to make changes to master data in SAP R/3 or make changes to the print program for ACH file to make sure that the file does not get generated (ideal situation).

    Hope that helps..

      Thanks for your time!

      So this would mean I need not implement FI-CA completely and just make the required settings?

      One more thing: once we receive the file back from bank and run the program RFKKPNR00, will this fix the errors if any automatically or do we have to manually update the records like customer master and re-run F110? (I don't know if I understood this right...I'll check it up in the system tomorrow).
