In this document we will analyze different functionality of Liquidty Planner

1. Create Query

2. Delete & Recreate Data

3. Liquidity Analysis

4. Structured Reports

5. List GL Accounts

6. Transfer Information from one client to another

7. Forecast

1. Create Query

Onte of the functionalities of Liquidity Planner is the possibility of creating queries, this means redirect the natural flow of the document chain to a Liquidity Position because of external conditions. Once a query condition is met, FSCM-LP stops searching for the next level and replaces the Liquidity Position with the one in the query

a) Create a query

b) Assign the query to a Query Sequence

a) Create a Query

If you create a query you define the Liquidity Position and the query conditions which will re-assing the new Liquidity Position

There are to types of queries from the origin conception. Origin C is for payment documents (Vendor/Customers) in the document chain, and D are for G/L Accounts (Incomes & expenses Accounts). Depending on what query do you want to create you will have the following trx

Transactions

Origin C

      • FLQQC1         Create a Query
      • FLQQC3         Display Query
      • FLQQC5         Assign a query to a query sequence
      • FLQQC7         Test a query

Origin D

      • FLQQD1         Create a Query
      • FLQQD3         Display Query
      • FLQQD5         Assign a query to a query sequence
      • FLQQD7         Test a query

Each query needs:

    • Name
    • Description
    • Liquidity Position
    • Conditions

if we click on Conditions, we  will see

There are different areas from where you can obtain information, Accounting Document & Vendor/Customer Master Data.

b) Assign the query to a Query Sequence

In trx FLQAD/FLQAF you don’t have query names, instead you have query sequences which is a group of querys. Query sequence (as well as queries) can be defined for a company group or all companies; only condition is if a query is defined for a company code then query sequence should also be for the company code. The query sequence is done in customizing


Transactions


FLQCB      Create Query Sequence for FI Mechanism (Origin C)

FLQC11     Create Query Sequence for Invoices (Origin D)


Once the query sequence is created, you can assign queries and use them in FLQAD/FLQAF

2. Create and Delete Data


Sometimes there is the need to delete all data and start from scratch. Thes 2 trx will help you do that


FLQC9        Delete all Liquidity Information

FLQC10      Reconstruct Liquidity Information



3. Liquidity Analisys


In ECC 6.0 EhP7, in FLQAD you have the radio button “Analysis” that will show how the systems reconstructs the document chain


In ECC EhP6 and earlier versions you will run program RFLQ_REXCHAIN which will reconstruct document chain the same way as FLQAD


4. Structure Reports


Liquidity Reports (FLQLS, FLQREP) does not offer a structured report; this means all expenses / incomes are not grouped by their origin, they are only listed alphabetically according to Liquidity Positions. You would like to group them according to their origin.


Apply sap note 998071


5. List GL Accounts


When analyzing LP reports you would like a tool to determine the G/L Account and its Liquidity Position for faster analysis.


FLQLACC


6. Transfer information from one client to another


Not all information is transfered by customizing, ie: FLQINFACC . You would like to transfer it from one system to another


FLQUPINFAC      Download/Upload FLQINFAC information

FLQUPQR            Download/Upload Queries

FLQUPGRP          Download/Upload Query Sequences (defined in FLQQD5 or FLQQC5)


7. Forecast


If you have concluded your liquidity analysis fro actuals and would like to determine forecast information, here are the programs:


RFLQ_CASH_FORECAST_FIN            Liquidity Calculation: Forecast from Accounting (Open Items)

RFLQ_CASH_FORECAST_MMPO        Liquidity Calculation: Forecast from MM PO and Scheduling Agreemen

RFLQ_CASH_FORECAST_MMPR        Liquidity Calculation: Forecast from MM Purchase Request

RFLQ_CASH_FORECAST_SDSO         Liquidity Calculation: Forecast from Sales Orders

RFLQ_CASH_FORECAST_TRD1          Liquidity Calculation: Forecast from Loans (FS-CML)

RFLQ_CASH_FORECAST_TRT1          Liquidity Calculation: Forecast from TR Transactions (FSCM-TRM)


RFLQ_DELETE_FC                               Liquidity Calculation: Delete Forecast Data (forecast – cleared documents)

RFLQ_REPORT_FC                              Liquidity Calculation: Forecast per Liquidity Item Report

In EhP7 you have trx FLQF1, FLQF2 & FLQF3 which cover some of the functions mentioned before.

If you want a comparison between actuals and forecast, you will need SAP BI/BO

    Dear Gustavo Vazquez,


    Excellent blog .. Great Job 🙂


    We have a scenario to show only the bank balances in the liquidity forecast report, what is the origin type i have to apply for this requirement.



    With Origin D – i tried to bring main bank balance in the report wich is not working at all,Origin C – I am able to see the chain upto bank statement processing for vendor invoices not the consolidated bank balance.


    Appreciate if you have any suggestion to achieve my requirement. 



    Regards,

    Naresh.

      Hi Naresh,

      Good to hear you liked the document.

      For Open/Closing Balance in Bank Accounts try report RFLQ_BALANCE_CF. and sap notes 922475, 1773752 . I don’t have a system to test it 🙁

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards

    Dear Gustavo,

    The queries created in FLQQD1 and FLQQC1 are only working when we registered the account number in FLQINFACC transaction. Is it required to registered the account in FLQINFACC for the query to be worked.
    Best regards,
    Mithlesh

      Hi Mitlesh,

      Yes, you need the GL account in trx FLQINFACC .
      As most of my queries have been on Customer/Vendor level, I have already assigned them.

      If you create a query you define the Liquidity Position and the query conditions which will re-assign the new Liquidity Position.

      Kind Regards
