Reference

Use

You use the Reference function to link transactions together.

Pairing of transactions for a Swap

References are grouped in the following categories:

CON

SWIFT confirmation files

EUR

Euro-Transaction currency conversion

MIR

Mirror transaction-link (after Rel. 4.0C)

OPT

Option reference - derivatives

PRL

Rollover of forex transactions

REF

General reference

SWP

Forex swap

 

In the Money market, Foreign exchange and Derivatives areas and in Transaction currency conversion, references are created automatically when transactions are executed. You can, however, create them manually.
You can only create a General reference between transactions manually. This does not automatically create a reference.

Features

Creating a new reference

You can create a reference between at least two related transactions.
When you create reference categories, Option reference - derivatives, Rollover of forex transactions and Forex swap, the SAP R/3 System does an internal check which produces error messages.

Processing existing references

You can change, display or write off existing references. You might need the latter in the case of a reversal, since you cannot automatically delete references.

Collective Processing

To process references more quickly, you can use the Collective processing function.
