Issue Details

 

Problem: Sales Orders getting Credit Blocks – Clearing document is not transferred to FSCM, results in credit check fail- Open item from xx no of days

At the time of clearing the details are updated in table UKM_TRANSFER_ARV and then data is transferred to FSCM

 

Usually in sales process where in credit management is active and checks Oldest Open Item, Highest Dunning Level, Last payment, figures for relevant credit segment in FSCM. (configuration ID - 102623).

 

 

Credit management checks these key figures updated against the rule and credit check is updated for all the BP (Business partner), which in turn block the sales document.

 

Solution:

Sales order created performs the credit check when saving the sales document (order/delivery), credit management checks the payment key figures as example oldest open item and calculates the open no of days and updates the credit.
