Payment Release for Vendor


Dear Gurus,

Please help on the below issue.I had made standard release for payment configuration and assigned the workflows.When am doing vendor invoice work flow is triggering but getting an error.

Error in workflow Customizing of payment release

Message no. FP162


The system could not determine a subworkflow for the payment release. Check the workflow Customizing for the payment release, in particular the settings for transaction OBWE and the preceeding settings.

The message is output from the method SUBWFDETERMINE of the BOR object BSEG.

System response

The workflow was started, but the system could not create an executable dialog workitem for the line item payment release. However, you cannot release the document directly, it must be released in the workflow. A subworkflow for the payment release must be determined in the sample workflow WS00400012; the clerks are determined in role 00400125.

Role 00400125 is based on the function module PR_WF_ACTOR1_DET.


Change the payment release Customizing in Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable Accounting. SAP delivers a sample subworkflow for payment release, WS00400011.

Procedure for System Administration

Restart the incorrect workflow (transaction SWPR) once you have maintained the Customizing for the payment release.

Need your help.

Thanks & Regards,
