Dunning notices and account statements can now be printed with
attached payment media. The standard system now supports bank
transfers (Germany) and POR payment documents. You can print
payment forms both as part of the main letter (at the bottom of a
dunning notice) or on a separate sheet attached to the main letter.
If payment media are included in the main letter where notices are
several pages long, all payment media are voided up to the last
The data for a payment medium is printed in the structure PAYMO.
The variables for this structure can be included in the main letter
or on a separate form. Depending on the type of payment medium,
only certain variables in the PAYMO structure are filled.
Payment media are created only if the main letter contains (a)
items in one currency only, (b) the payment amount is a positive
figure, and (c) the payment in question is a domestic payment.
Change system parameters in customizing
The following examples illustrate the settings you may need to
make in Customizing:
1. Payment Program
In the following, it is assumed that
you create two new payment methods: one for bank transfers and one
for POR payment media. However, you should check your system
configuration as to whether you may be able to use existing payment
a) Payment method/country
Create the following payment
Country Payment method
DE X Bank transfer
CH Y POR pmnt doc.
b) Payment method/Company code
CoCde Payment method
0001 X Bank transfer
CH01 Y POR pmnt doc.
For the form data, you can enter data
here concerning the issuers. You can then use this data on the
pament medium form.
c) Banks/Master data
Define a house bank to which the
amounts are to be paid.
CoCde House bank Country Bank key
0001 LG DE 60050101
Define a bank account in to which the
amounts are to be paid.
CoCde House bank Account ID Text Bank
0001 LG GIRO Girokonto 1111111
d) Bank selection
Define a ranking order for bank
selection. In the standard system, the first entry found is
CoCde Pmnt Meth Curr. Sequence House
0001 X DEM 1 LG
Define the account in to which the
amounts are to be paid.
CoCde House bank Pmnt Meth. Curr.
0001 LG X DEM Current account
e) Figure in words
If you require figures in words in a
language that does not already exist, use transaction SM30 to
maintain View V_T015Z.
2. POR Configuration Procedure
In the Customizing menu activity
"Prepare POR procedure", define the necessary data.
Participant no. CoCde POR procedure
Bank no. Dunning notice with POR
123456789 0001 03 X
3. Configuration Procedure for
Additional Payment Media
a) Long Texts
Correspondence transactions are
predefined by SAP or are contained in customer programs meaning
that you can define the texts only.
The texts can be printed on
additional payment media. In addition, and depending on the calling
program, the short text is stored in payment advice notes for
The following correspondence
transactions are supported in the standard system:
Transaction Short description Long
0001 Account statement Account
0002 Dunning Dunning
b) Function Modules
Here you define the function modules
that procure or process the data for the payment medium. The
program from which the function module is called provides the data
from structure PAYMI. They then return the data in structure PAYMO
that is relevant for a special payment medium. The function module
documentation contains the PAYMO fields in which data is entered by
the payment medium function module.
Country Payment medium Payment medium
You only require these settings if
you want to print payment media on a separate sheet. Define the
form for the payment medium here.
CoCde Payment method Form
0001 X FAPM_DE_BANKTRAN
If you do not use one of your own
forms for the payment medium, you will need to modify the main
letter form to enable the payment medium data to be printed in the
required place (at the bottom).
To do this, define one or more new
windows that you position at the appropriate places in the main
letter. Form F150_CH_DUNN_01 can be used as a reference as to how
such a formula should appear. The POR payment document is printed
in the lower third of the page. Note however, that if you use the
additional payment medium function, then in contrast to the sample
form above, the fields in the payment medium area must be replaced
by the corresponding fields in the PAYMO structure.
d) Business Transaction Events and
Through the addition of this
interface, customer-specific enhancements can be made without the
need for modifications. The following interfaces are
P00001510: Once data has been entered
in the structure PAYMO
by the standard system. Bank
selection can be
overridden or a note to payee can be
P00001520: To change print parameters
like the printer.
4. Dunning Program Confuration
Under the settings for the dunning
texts, you can define whether you want the system to create an
additional payment medium (in addition to the form printout). You
do this by defining a payment method.
5. Configuration of Automatic
In the program variants for programs
RFKORD10 and RFKORD11, you define whether additional payment media
should be created for the account statement and Customer Statement
when you define a payment method. You define the appropriate
program variants in Customizing when you assign the program to the
relevant correspondence type and company code. If necessary, you
can define correspondence types both with and without payment
mediums that you can select according to your needs.
Described below are the Customizing activities for general
descriptions necessary for specific payment media:
