EXCERPT of Chapter 8 "Customizing Financial Accounting for Print Forms"


Before you can use print forms with your application, certain customizing steps may be needed. This chapter covers the following two activities related to customizing Financial Accounting (FI) for print forms:

  • How to use a modified form instead of a standard form
  • How to get printing results that cannot be achieved by modifying the form


If you copy and modify the standard print program for checks, you must inform the system that you want to use this new print program for printing checks. The following example shows how you can assign a print program to checks for a specific country.

TASK: Assign a new print program to checks.

1) Access the SAP Reference IMG (see "Accessing the IMG" on page 162).
2) Choose Financial Accounting -> Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable -> Business Transactions -> Outgoing Payments -> Automatic Outgoing Payments -> Payment Method/Bank Selection -> Configure payment program.
3) On the Payment Program Configuration: Initial Screen, choose Payment methods/country.
4) On the Maintain Payment Program Configuration: Countries screen, double-click on the appropriate country. In this example double-click on U.S. (United States). If you cannot find the line US, scroll down the screen.
5) On the Maintain Payment Program Configuration: Country Pmnt Methods - List screen, choose the appropriate payment method for checks. In this example double-click on C (Checks). The Maintain Payment Program Configuration: Country Pmnt Methods -Details screen appears.
a) In the Name of the print program field, enter the new print program name.
b) Save the changes.
If you use the CTS, specify a transport request after saving.
6) Choose Exit to return to the Payment Program Configuration: Initial Screen.
7) Choose Back to return to Display IMG screen.
