For the last three weeks, I’ve been covering topics related to keeping your check register up to date in SAP. We’ve discussed usage of electronic bank statements as well as encashment files. However, not all banks may provide electronic statements or these files.
If neither Electronic bank statements nor check encashment file options are available, how do you keep the register up to date? Unfortunately, in this case the only option is to manually mark checks as cashed in your system.
SAP provides a standard transaction for this called FCH6. When using this transaction, the check date for encashment will be added, but no accounting document will be generated. If accounting documents should be generated, transaction FCHR can be used.
FCH6 will allow you to update the checks one at a time. This is generally most helpful if there is only a small number of items to update, and no accounting is required.
However, if accounting documents are needed, then the FCHR transaction can be helpful. Here a list of items can be pasted into the transaction and updated at the same time.
And there you have it! Three options for keeping the check register up to date in SAP.
