Credit Mgmt: Early Warning Report (FCV3)

Hi !

I just can't seem to get this report to work. No matter what parameters I enter, I get the message 'No A/R summaries were selected in accord.with your specific'.

Is this report only for 'distributed credit management'? Ours is centralized credit management of the very basic/standard kind. This report seems like it would be very useful, but it is simply not pulling up any data.

Any pointers/guidance would be appreciated.

    Credit Management: Early Warning List


    Early Warning List


    You use the early warning list to display and print out those customers in credit management who are to be seen as critical within the credit checks in SD. In this context, a critical customer is one who, as a result of data you have defined in Customizing for credit management (under Sales and Distribution -> Basic Functions) in the activity Define Automatic Credit Control would not pass the following individual checks (carried out using information from the A/R summary) either at this moment, or in the near future:

    1. Credit check against oldest open items

    2. Credit check against overdue open items

    3. Credit check against maximum dunning level allowed

    4. Credit check against customer's next review date

    5. Credit check against age of A/R summary

    6. Credit limit used

    The sixth check determines the proportion of the total receivables, credit limit-relevant special general ledger transactions, and sales values that have reached the credit limit. The sales value is the total of all sales order values, values of goods to be delivered, and billing document values which have not yet been transferred to Financial Accounting. If you also specify a credit horizon, only those sales values which fall within that horizon are included.


    You have created an A/R summary for the selected customers using program RFCMCRCV. The system will only carry out individual checks using the automatic credit control data if you have also activated the relevant check as part of the credit check in SD. (See also Define Automatic Credit Control).



    You can use the selection criteria to limit the number of customers to be displayed. Two such categories are credit control area and risk category.

    You can adjust the range of the data to be displayed so that it meets your information needs by defining your own display variants in the output lists. You can use the ABAP List Viewer functions to format the list. For more information about the ABAP List Viewer, see the SAP Library under "CA - Cross-Application Components -> General Application Functions (CA-GTF) -> ABAP List Viewer".

    To receive an early warning list, enter optional check parameters and a credit group for the checks you want to run.

    If you make entries under the optional check parameters only, you can simulate possible entries in automatic credit control. The simulation list gives you an overview of which customers would be classified as critical if you were to define these values in automatic credit control.

    If you only specify the credit group, the system only runs the checks against the automatic credit control data. This gives you an overview of which customers currently fail the credit checks in SD.


    Depending on the results of individual checks, individual cells (or the fields Next check date, Due items, Arrears on oldest open item, Dunning level, Creation date and Credit limit used) are colored green, yellow, red, or blue.

    Green cell

    This customer has passed the individual check against both the data entered under the optional check parameters and against the automatic credit control data.

    Yellow cell

    Either the individual check against the data entered under the optional check parameters or the check against the automatic credit control data was not successful.

    Red cell

    Neither the individual check against the data entered under the optional check parameters nor the check against the automatic credit control data was passed.

    Blue cell

    The corresponding check has not been activated in automatic credit control.

    An overall check result is determined from the results of the individual checks, and is displayed in the form of a stoplight.

    Green stoplight

    The customer passed each of the individual checks, which means that all the check-relevant cells for this customer are green.

    Yellow stoplight

    Some of the individual checks were not successful.

    Red stoplight

    None of the individual checks were successful.

    Critical customers are therefore those marked with a red or yellow stoplight.


    You also have the option of displaying the following data by customer/ control area or company code in the early warning list:

    Credit data (overview, general data and credit control area data) by choosing Goto -> Credit management

    A/R summary status data by choosing Goto -> A/R summary

    Document display for oldest open item by choosing Goto -> Oldest item
