How to Find Out Which Type of Rule Processed a Bank Statement Item

Since the Processing Rules have been rolled out in SAP S/4HANA there are two ways to post a bank statement item automatically. Either by a posting rule or by a processing rule.

Often, we receive questions about how to find out which bank statement items were posted by which technology. In this blog post, you will see how you can find this out easily.

All screenshots in this blog post are taken from an SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2208 system. Of course, this procedure is applicable for both SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud systems.

Let’s imagine your company defined next to the pre delivered posting rules two automatic reprocessing rules in the Manage Processing Rules app:

A bank statement with eight items was imported and processed completely. It can be displayed in the app Reprocess Bank Statement Items:

For a brief overview you can add the posting rule and processing rule columns to the list by clicking on the settings wheel and selecting the columns:

To display only bank statement items that were processed by a processing rule, you can apply a filter on the respective column. For example, just right-click the Processing Rule ID column header, and select the Filter symbol. Now you can enter that you want to see only bank statement items with a not empty processing rule:

Please note: A space needs to be entered in the input field.

Now you can see all the bank statement items posted by processing rules:Screenshot%20with%20filtered%20bank%20statement%20items

Now, you have seen how easy it is to find out which bank statement items were posted by which technology. I hope that this example helps you to work with Processing rules.
