During reconciliation between affiliated companies, the A/R balance in one company often doesn't match the A/P balance in the other company. Learn a quick and easy way to assign leftover documents to each other.
Key Concept
The R/3 transaction F.2E can help you analyze differences between affiliated companies. This transaction shows you all the documents for which it couldn’t find a corresponding document in an affiliated company.

One of the period-end tasks within every company is the reconciliation between affiliated companies. This is often a difficult and time-consuming activity.

For company codes that have their accounts receivable and accounts payable administration in the same client, SAP offers a transaction that can do automatic document reconciliation.

Transaction F.2E is available from Release 4.6A and is not well documented. I will give a brief description of the automatic reconciliation transaction between affiliated companies and describe its prerequisites.
