Check numbers

How do I manage to decrease a check number?

I have the following problem:

The paper the bank sent to print the checks on had a duplicate number, so there are several checks in SAP with a number not fitting the actual number written on the check.

The error in the two checks that actually have the same number printed on them can't be mended. But I have to change all the following check numbers, so that they fit with printed ones.

I've already asked in this forum, and I obtained this useful answer.

Hi,

I had done the following steps to reconcile the actual printed checks and the check register.

1) Identified the check number that we needs to be voided in the SAP check register.

2) Run the t.code FCH4( check renumber ). this voids the selected checks based on the selection criteria and adjusts the check numbers in the check register at one go .

Best Regards

Now, the problem persists because transaction FCH4 doesn't allow me to renumber checks with a number less than the present one. I mean, if check number is 1001 I can't renumber it to 1000, which is precisely what I need. Of course, check 1000 has previously been deleted.

How do I manage to decrease a check number?

Thanks in advance,

S.

    Hi,

    Use t.code: FCHE to delete the data in check number 1000. Then you are allowed to use the check number 1000.

    I will give one example to you as below.

    Recently we had a similar problem, suggested as below and able to resolve this issue.

    1.T.Code: FCH9 to void the issues checks number 1001.(check with yours vendors whether these checks are already cashed or not before void the checks)

    2.T.Code: FCHE to delete the data in void checks number 1001.

    3. T.Code: FCHE to delete the data in void check number 1000.

    4.T.Code: FCH5 to issue the checks mannualy from 1000.

    Hope it will resolve your issue.

    pl. first test this scenario in your test client, if everything is ok, then you can do the same in production also.

    all the best
