Learn how to force an update on the status of an electronic bank statement.

Have you ever received a support call that an item on a prior day bank statement is showing up in red status, in spite of the item posting correctly? What do you do now, as you don’t want to create additional accounting for the item?

The functionality to force an update on the status of an electronic bank statement (EBS) has been around since SAP ERP Central Component (ECC) 4.6. Many people are unaware of its existence and how it can help when various support problems such as an incorrect status occur. The scenario that I write about is based on ECC enhancement package 6.

This tip is for users who do not have FIN_BL_EB_1 activated in their systems. FIN_BL_EB_1 activates a new set of EBS functionality and was delivered as part of SAP ERP Central Component enhancement package 6.

Within that new functionality there is a different process for updating bank statements that comes as part of the FEBAN transaction.
