Alternative to BDC for Transactions F-30 or FB05 in RAP/Fiori Apps for Posting with Clearing

Hello Experts,

Posting the documents with Clearing open items and doing the transfer postings is a very common requirements in most of the SAP implementation FICO based projects.

Clearing can done in multiple ways

  • G/L posting with clearing
  • Customer – Customer  Posting with clearing
  • Vendor- vendor Posting with Clearing

Till today for the custom based requirements we are using either BDC on the transactions F-30 or FB05 with Transfer posting with clearing options or using the below three function modules which is detailed out in the below blog .


However with the ABAP cloud and Fiori apps are coming into picture there was an alternative approach required to perform the transfer postings.

New Approach for the Transfer postings :

During the analysis to find a new class or function module to avoid the BDC coding and perform the above activity the below applications Upload Journal Entry app  F2548‘F2548’)/S24OPand the SOAP based Interface which is posting the Journal Entries is evaluated and realized the class CL_FDC_ACCDOC_POST=> ACCDOC_POST is used in the same.

Before Moving into the technical solution let us understand what is the Transfer posting with Clearing :

Lets say customer 1  has total open items of 2000 Eur and out of that he wants to transfer 1500 to another customer and clear the original posting we can use any of the transaction FB05 or F-30 to do the same using the options

  • Open Transaction F-30 provide the customer1 details to be cleared and posted


F-30 Transaction

Enter the amount to be transferred from Customer 1


Transfer Amount

Now click on the Process Open Items buttons and check the list of open items

Now click on the Charge Off Difference to charge the remaining amounts to Customer 2 for Clearing as shown below enter amount as *

On Click of back button the posting will be seen as below with the customer line items and the amounts to be transferred,

Thus you can do the postings and clear the Customer 1. When you open the Open items again for the Customer 1 1500 will be cleared.


Find the below reference code for the reference for Customer – Customer Transfer posting scenario .

  • Fill the Header structure
  • Fill the Item Table with the line items for the Customer 1 to be transferred
  • Fill the Item table to be cleared structure with the Customer 2 number
  • Simulate using the class method cl_fdc_accdoc_post=>accdoc_simulate  to check for any errors
  • In case of no errors use the class cl_fdc_accdoc_post=>accdoc_post  or wrap the class inside a RFC Function module for RAP based scenarios and call the function module with Destination ‘NONE’ to avoid the commit dumps .

NOTE : The below code will help to start with the postings with clearing but it might non work 1-1 in practical scenarios .

  IF posted_document IS NOT INITIAL.

Thus you can avoid the BDC programming going forward for the F-30 and FB05 transactions

      Is it not easier to use FM FI_DOCUMENT_GENERATE_AND_CLEAR?

      Arun Iyer  : You can use it but most of the FMs are not cloud ready so its better use the classes than Fms

      Hello Ajay,


      We are trying to use same steps for Account clearing, but it is not working. Can you please elaborate on usage of Item and clearing table?
