Error while uploading MT940 format

Hi Experts,

While uploading MT940 format file through t.code ff_5 following error come:

External transaction N155 + and N475- is not found.

What these external transactions stand for and what should be the posting rule and interpretation alogrith for the same?

I maintain these two external transaction without posting rule but it didn't solve my problem.

Thanks & Regards ,

      Now coming to your issues

      1) When the statement was uploaded first time, what options did you select in output control? If you select posting log etc you will get exact status of the statement uploaded. Please check in FEBA the status of this statement uploaded.

      Also recheck your customising with reference to posting rule etc.

      2) About the second statement of yours, I understand that you are now receiving an error FB 771 on trying to upload same statement again via FF_5, this is correct as one statement can be uploaded only once.

      Check the below note

      "15759 Deleting account statements and check deposit lists"

      Report RFEBKA96 is an utility program meant for using in test systems and in emergency situations. In your case where you have confirmed that there are no posting happened for this statement uploaded(Please recheck and ensure the same), you can go ahead and use this program but has to be used in caution. Please review the above note which has more details.

      Kind Regards

    Go through the complete configuration:

    IMG ==> Financial Accounting ==> Bank Accounting ==> Business Transactions ==> Payment Transactions ==> Electronic Bank Statement ==> Make Global Settings for Electronic Bank Statement

    Ensure you have completed all the steps.
