OB74 clearing rules

Hi all,

I want to clear one gl account automatically using OB74 rules. But I have an exception that this transaction doesnt cover.

I explain in detail:

We are receving bank statements in USD and EUR. So, invoices have to clear automatically in both currencies. With the rule defined below I can just clear automatically invoices posted in EUR (Local currency) or foreign currencies. But for USD I dont want to clear by local currency but Document currency.

Rule defined:

gl account 11000 using criterion DMBTR

And I cant change the rule into criterion AMOUNT, because invoices in foreign currencies doesnt match with bank statemetn in EUR....

How can I manage to get both rules in the system?

Many thanks

    Dear Mansika,

    You want to clear the GL Account 110000 by Amount in local currency (DMBTR) when the currency is EUR. When the currency is USD the clearing is in Amount in Document Currency (WRBTR).

    SAP Standard doesn't provide conditional criteria for automatic clearing however you can use a substitution rule for this process.

    Look my suggestion below and let me know if it was helpful.

    Define 2 additional steps in your Substitution Rule:

    Step 1


    BSEG-HKONT (GL acc) = '110000' and BKPF-WAERS (Moeda Doc) = 'EUR'


    BSEG-DMBTR (Amount Local Currency) = BSEG-ZUONR (Assignment)

    Step 2


    BSEG-HKONT (GL acc) = '110000' e BKPF-WAERS (Moeda Doc) = 'USD'


    BSEG-WRBTR (Amount Local Currency) = BSEG-ZUONR (Assignment)

    Transaction OB74

    GL ACC: 110000 / Criteria: ZUONR (Assignment)

    I suggest that you set up the field 'assignment' as a selection criterion. If you have any use for this field look for some other field that is not being used.
