You can achieve this requirement through FI clearing rule(transaction code OBIA and OBIB).

For example, you want to populate same payment reference value from vendor invoice document to payment document.

Create FI Clearing Rule

Transaction Code: OBIA


Click on New Entries, enter Clearing Rule (two characters ) and Description.



Select clearing rule  and click on “Clearing Rule Fields” of Dialog structure on left hand side.


Click on New Entries, enter  Item number 1 and Field KIDNO for payment reference.


Save the entry.

Maintain Maintenance view for assigning FI clearing rules

Transaction Code: OBIB

Click on new entries and select account type (K for vendor D for customer and S for GL)& assign your clearing rule which you created through OBIA.


Now setting has been done for populating payment reference value from  invoice document to payment document for vendor.

Post incoming invoice

Transaction Code: FB60

During posting an invoice, click on payment tab and enter payment reference value.


Check Payment reference value in Vendor Line Item Report

Transaction Code: FBL1N

    Hi Kalim,

    Very helpful document. Normally for this kind of requirement, most of us end up doing some enhancement (like substitution exit) to achieve the solution. Simple and straight forward solution without the need to take any help from ABAP guys.

    Thanks for posting.

    Dear Mohammed,

    do you know whether it is possible to transfer SGTXT field from payment request to a clearing document in F111 transaction? I have a payment request created without document but the field SGTXT is in the PAYRQ table. I would need to transfer it to clearing document. Now the clearing document is completely empty. Thanks in advance.

    We  have tested this scenario but here one question is system should pick automatically invoice reference number as  payment reference then it is worth doing configuration.

    manually input the same invoice reference number in payment reference user usually will not accept
