Mass clearing using F-32, how to do it quicker


We have a huge number (4 million) of open items on 6 customer accounts that need to be cleared down. The balance on the accounts is not zero so we have posted journals. We then clear using F-32. The problem is SAP resouce does not allow the clearing of this many line items in one go.

The open items date back to 1999 so we have posted further journals that post a single line for the open items per fiscal year. We then run F-32, select by posting date (ie all items in single year) and journal document number, thus restricting the clearing but we have found that we can only process about 70,000 line items at one time and this takes 30 mins to clear in background (F-32 quickly creates a clearing document but the line items are cleared in background)

Is there any way to do this quicker, we can't use F.13 as you can't select by posting date AND document number and in any case F.13 clears in the same way as F-32 so it will take just as long.
