For Release 40A, various programs and possible customizing
settings have been enhanced:
1. Format SWIFT MT940:
A new user exit has been created which you can use to edit the
imported (raw) data before the SAP program processes it.
All imported data is copied as an internal table in the user exit.
You can change, add to, or delete data.
This means this user exit (SAP enhancement FEB0004) makes it
possible for you to treat country/bank-specific deviations from the
SWIFT MT940 format in such a way that they comply with the SWIFT
MT940 format recommended by SAP.
Note that any changes you make to the user exit are entirely your
2. Formats CSB43 (Spain) and ETEBAC
The alternative currency keys (such as 000 for FRF) used in these
formats are handled differently from Release 40A.
In addition to the transaction type, you also assign a currency
class to the house bank account when you are customizing the
electronic bank statement.
In a currency class, you pair off the currency keys used in the
system (for example, per ISO standard) and the alternative currency
SAP currency key : alternative currency key
DEM : 215
Create Currency Class
Define Currency Classes
Assign Currency Classes
The system uses these assignments to
determine the currency key required in the system from that
supplied by the bank statement.
Processing terminates if any currency classes or pairs are
Postprocessing transaction for the electronic bank
The postprocessing transaction has been made easier to work
with. In the display showing all the statements from a house bank
account, the system shows the update status of the line items
related to this statement:
1. A green check mark means that all
line items have been posted.
2. A red cross means that at least
one line item has no been posted. Where this is the case, you must
carry out postprocessing.
1. The display only shows the
postings for the posting area you displayed.
What this means is that if the overview of all the bank statements
in a posting area shows that all the items in a statement are
processed in full (green check mark), this does not mean that all
the line items in the other posting area are processed in full too.
You must check this separately by displaying the other posting
a) Bank statements which were
generated for batch input sessions count as processed in full
(green check mark)
b) Line items for which there is no
posting in the displayed posting area (such as purely G/L postings
-> only one posting area) also count as fully processed in this
unused posting area.
