Manual Bank Reconciliation Tables

2007A PL42

I am in the process of creating a bank reconciliation report (a basic report always used in the US - surprised and disappointed that SAP doesn't have it out of the box). When client first performs Manual Reconciliation, they are prompted to enter the Bank beginning balance, ending balance, and end date. Upon subsequent reconciliations, they will only be asked for the ending balance and end date, as the beginning balance is retained from the last reconciliation that was performed.

In what table is the balance information that is entered to perform the reconciliation stored? I have found the following thus far:

OBNK.DueDate - contains the end date entered

OBNK.DebAmount - contains the net amount of transactions cleared in the reconciliation if it is a debit

OBNK.CredAmnt - contains the net amount of transactions cleared in the reconciliation if it is a credit

The JDT1 table contains the transaction information and the reconciliation number that ties to the OBNK table.

My assumption is that the beginning balance is calculated each time. However, where is the bank ending balance information kept?

Thanks for your help experts.

    Actually, your assumption is only from one angel, what we can find is the next beginning balance which is the same as the last ending balance after you posted your manual reconciliation. Here, beginning and ending are all relative. It is only the balance in one specific time. Depending on your point of view, it can mean beginning or ending.

    Thanks,

    We are experiencing the same problem. It is very frustrating as this shold be a basic function for any program used for accounting purposes.
