Fixed Term Deposit - Flows Blocked for Posting


I am able to create a fixed term deposit deal, but not able to post any flows via TBB1. When looking into my deal (Cash Flow tab) I see that all of my flows are BLOCKED. If I try to right click on each flow, it does not allow me to release the flow. In fact, I am not expecting them to need a release step (I set up the Prod Type 51A / Trans Type 100 to be "Automatic Posting Release").

Any ideas on why my flows are always blocked?

I am using ECC 6.0.

Appreciate any inputs - thanks.

    Hi Pollie,

    Apart from Ravi's suggestion i have one more input which might help.

    The icon and release indiacator you are checking in the deal will tell, whether the deal can be posted or not. So when you create, it rightly points that it is not relevent for posting. Only after you settle the deal, you can post it. Thats the life cycle.

    Note: The processing category in the transaction type specifies if settlement is needed or not. Please check that for 51a, whatever transaction type is assigned.

    Please settle the deal and hope this helps!

      Hi Sandip

      Thanks for your inputs!

      You are correct. I had overlooked the Processing Category assigned to the Transaction Type. I changed it to a Processing Category that did not require Settlement.

      My flows are now being picked up in TBB1. They are still not getting posted however - but that is another issue I need to open another thread on 😊

      Many thanks for the advice!

    Make sure that the update types you have assigned are related to posting. You must mention that in the configuration under the position management. You have to indicate the update type as relevant for posting.

    Check your flow type whether they are relevant for posting.

      SAP Says "Update types are defined in sample Customizing and assigned to usages as well as specified for different usages. When you make your Customizing settings you should refer to sample Customizing"

      We are trying to configure TRM-Transaction Manager. In SPRO, we see about 920 sample keys for update types in our sandbox where as this is complete blank in our dev client.

      I am unable to track down how these Update Types got into Sandbox but not in Dev client.

      Looking at the naming convention they look like SAP defined in Sandbox. We donu2019t have to create any custom keys if we can get SAP default ones.

      Is there any way we get these w/o having to create them manually?

      Any put greatly appreciated
