    If you have not ticked open item management in GL master, then it cannot appear as Open items..

    In your Bank Reconciliation, can you let us know how you have mapped Bank Charges..

    You can either directly post to the main Bank Account when bank Charges appear in Bank Statement and in that case you do not need Bank Charges GL as Open Item managed.

    The entry would be :

    Bank Charges A/C...Dr.

    To Main Bank GL.

    Secondly, if you have posted it in your Books before a Bank Reconciliation, then the entry would be:

    Bank Charges A/C...Dr.

    To outgoing bank Account

    And the Outgoing Bank Account is Open item managed and would get cleared just like any other entry.

    Do let know the scenario and the problem you are facing clearly..

      Hi Venkat,

      Check Bank Charges GL in FS00, whether it is marked as Open item management.

      If yes, then this is the reason that the bank Charges is showing as Open items.. it has nothing to do with FF67.

      If the GL is marked as Open item managed, then open a new Bank Charges GL and assign in Customizing of Bank Reconcilaition Statement.


      You can also deactivate the Open item management on the existing GL.

      Check and let us know for further suggestion..

    as far as I know, when an account is defined with 'Line item display' and without 'Open item management', the items remains always in open status, but it is not a problem for me.

    You are absolutely correct that Bank Charges is a P n' L account and should not be open item managed.

    Please go to transaction FS00 and open the master data of that GL and company code.

    If you are able to see the postings in that GL Account with status open "red colour" then it means that the GL Account has defintely been managed on OI basis in transaction FS00.

    Now you need to de-activate the OI management.

    Use the SAP Note 175960 to proceed.

    You will have to copy the standard program RFSEPA02 (which currently SAP has de-activated) and make the modifications suggested by SAP in the note mentioned above.

    This will resolve your problem.
