Conventional approach of correcting errors in an accounting doc posting has been processing the Batch Enter Session (popularly identified to BDC session) utilizing SAP Transaction SM35. Nevertheless it accommodates the chance of key fields modification (e.g. quantity) and monitoring of BDC classes as per the respective error purpose can be not doable.
Due to this fact SAP launched Error Correction System(ECS) perform in SAP enhancement bundle 5 for SAP ERP 6.0 (SAP_APPL_605). We will use this enterprise perform to right errors in paperwork earlier than posting them. If the errors can’t be resolved routinely, the system creates ECS gadgets that we will right manually.
Beneath given are the options of Error Correction performance :-
- Computerized processing of ECS gadgets
- Handbook processing of ECS gadgets
- Doc Balancing
- Doc Splitting
- Archiving of ECS gadgets
Followings are key configuration steps :-
- Outline First Stage Checks
These are the checks outlined to run earlier than auto correction and earlier than paperwork are processed in order to switch incorrect gadgets to Error Correction
System(ECS). Commonplace SAP checks Firm code, posting date, doc kind, posting key and quantity earlier than Customized outlined first degree checks.
SAP makes use of ECS setting to submit accounting doc with auto correction or course of ECS gadgets. We could outline ECS setting as per the
enterprise course of or interface. First degree checks should be assigned to every ECS setting. Authentic and Default worth indicators ought to be marked
in order that they’re out there through the correction of the ECS gadgets. If an interface is predicated on BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST, ECS setting must
be populated in header parameter “ECS_ENV” for creation of ECS gadgets in inaccurate transactions.
Error classes are teams of error messages which can be raised within the error dealing with course of and within the auto correction processor. We will assign fields
from FI doc line gadgets to the error classes. These fields are used when ECS gadgets are processed manually in Error Correction System. When
an error happens that’s assigned to a specific error class, the system permits us to course of solely the sector that we assigned to the error class.
- Assign Error Messages to Error Classes
Right here we have to map the message class, message quantity and error kind (error class) created in step listed beneath.
- Outline Compound Error Class
Compound error classes classify ECS gadgets. We will additionally use them once we course of paperwork manually.
- Person Interface Settings – Outline Extra Fields
We have to create extra fields that we wish to have on the interface. For every discipline we will specify whether or not the system is to show the unique
worth, the posted worth, or the right worth.
- Person Interface Settings- Outline Extra Fields for Corrections to Line Gadgets
On this Customizing exercise we outline which fields we would like the system to open within the ECS office out of the “Extra fields” outlined for an Interface.
- Create Quantity Ranges for Doc Numbers in ECS classes
Right here we outline the quantity vary for the ECS gadgets.
Enterprise Transactions of Error Correction System
SAP Transaction Code Description of SAP Transaction Code
ACC_ECS_MAINTAIN SAP Edit ECS Gadgets
ACC_ECS_LIST Show ECS Gadgets
ACC_ECS_REVERSE Reverse Single ECS Doc
- ECS merchandise will probably be up to date with standing “Deleted” after reversal.
- As soon as reversed, an ECS merchandise might not be processed once more i.e. it might not be corrected utilizing transaction code ACC_ECS_MAINTAIN(SAP Edit ECS Gadgets)
- Accounting doc posted by way of ECS Module might not be reversed utilizing SAP Transaction FB08 (Reverse Monetary Accounting Doc
Following Gaps have been recognized in Error Correction System :-
- It was primarily launched for easy Normal Ledger transactions of banking corporations. It might not repair lacking COPA module traits difficulty in a Finance Accounting Doc.
