Cheque payments from 2 different bank accounts

Post by roadwarrior01 » Wed Dec 07, 2011 9:24 am

We already have cheque payments (method C) configured from a bank account in a small company code. A new account has been opened at the same house bank for a special purpose.

Trying to set up Bank Determination and specify the new bank account as ranking order 2, but get an error that the same "key" is being used. I think this is the house bank identifier (5-character, field HBKID in structure V_T012).

We need to keep the same house bank identifier but want to set up with the new account ID (field HKTID in structure V_T012K). SAP won't let us do this. Is this a "feature?"

I'm thinking we may need to clone a new payment method, and assign the house bank identifier and account ID as ranking order 1 for this new method.

Thoughts or suggestions?

Unfortunately, Account ID cannot be used in account determination.
I would recommend either create new House Bank ID, or different Payment Method.

Is the second bank account going to be used for checks as well?

why can you not setup a second account ID lets say ex ACT2 with bank acct number 0002

Then all the vendors that will need to be paid with this account, have their master data populated with HB & ACT2 combination.

That way when documents are posted with payable for vendo, the invoice will default to ACT2 and pay out of second account.

Is that what you want to do?

You can't specify acct ID in vendor master record or document. That's why separate house bank ID is required, as I stated above.

Thanks for suggestions.

Darkduck, how about including house bank and account ID in a payment program variant, for these specific transactions (i.e. a separate variant for RFFOUS_C) to be specified when running payment proposal F110?

The stage when RFFO* programs are involved is too late in the process. You have all the information for payment already in SAP tables (REGUH/REGUP/PYORDH/PYORDP) by that time. The programs RFFO* simply filter by parameters on their selection screens and create payment media for existing table records.
It means that you need to have the information (payment method, bank ID, account ID etc) ready for use before payment programs starts, not at its last step.
