Proposal not created for Automatic clearing

Hi Experts,

In my current project we have a complex payment/clearing priority which we have configured and the same is working as required when we post a payment using FP05/FPCJ/FPY1.

We have assigned the same clearing variant for in config step Define Defaults for Account Maintenance for clearing type Account Maintenance (03) & Automatic clearing (04).

While executing Tcode FP06 with create proposal its giving us a message - No clearing proposal could be created Message no. >0486

Clearing is also not possible using FPMA.

Can anyone please suggest if we missed any configuration.

    It is not expected that clearing with payments works the same as when done with account maintenance transactions.  A payment is looking at open items.  Account maintenance looks at debits and credits to find a match - those are fundamentally different scenarios which are usually not handled by the same variant.

    You likely need to define different variants for each process.

      Hi Satyajeet,

      As Bill said the clearing variant for payments will be different compared the clearing variant for account maintenance.

      The reason is generally you will groups credits in the  first step whether it is a payment on account or some sort of miscellaneous credits and in susequent steps you will mention clients priorities like security deposits or installment charges etc that should get cleared first with the credits grouped in step 1, we had a similar kind of scenario in our client as well.
