Matching criteria in electronic banking


Hi all,

I have a vendor with bank details in my system and an open line item for say 1000. I use a posting rule with interpretation algorithm 020 (document number).

Now I upload my bank statement. The bank statement includes the bank details of my vendor and also matches the amount of 1000. However, the note to payee field does NOT contain any reference that would point towards my vendor line item.

Here's the thing: In the SAME customising environment:

SAP version 4.6C used to leave this bank statement transaction as UNprocessed.

ERP version 6.0, however clears my vendor item.

My assumption is that when using algorithm 020, there MUST be a match using the document number, else no clearing takes place. or is my assumption wrong? If wrong, it would suggest that SAP has made a modification in ERP 6.0 but I can't find any relevant notes.

In general: is the business partner + amount sufficient for SAP to consider it a match or should SAP include the document number (from the algorithm) in the equasion?

Thanks in advance for your replies.
