BEST AP & BSR Module Enhancements:
• 3 rd Party Source System Processing:
Enhancements were applied to be able to reconcile external AP documents with the statement lines loaded into BEST in SAP. This requires that the external AP line items be uploaded in a text file format or via RFC to our new BEST table /BST1/BSIX which will function in the same manner as the standard SAP BSIK (Open Items) & BSAK (Cleared Items) tables. A new config option was created to activate vendors for the reconciliation to external AP documents.
As a standard BEST caters for the below:
• External SAP systems
• Oracle
• Any other 3rd Party Source system
New Master Data transactions were also created to map the external and SAP Vendor IDs, Company Codes, Document Types, debit/credit indicators.
