This document explains how you initiate automatic allocation for a bank statement that has been validated.
It also explains how to initiate automatic allocation for a single statement line. This can be useful if you have already
partly allocated the statement, and where you only have to allocate single statement lines in order for the statement to be
Automatic allocation of a bank statement is initiated and carried through. The affected invoices are blocked, and general
ledger transactions may have been created as well. If the statement is not fully allocated, you have analyzed why.
If a workflow (next manual step) option was used and the statement is fully allocated, then general ledger is updated with
one or several created vouchers. If so, the open invoices allocated to the line are closed.
Refer to Review a Partly or Fully Allocated Bank Statement for information about how to proceed.
These files may have been updated, depending on the extent of the automatic work that has been performed:
Bank statement header (FABHED)
Bank statement lines (FABLIN)
Bank statement lines, details, (FABDET)
Bank statement lines, additional information (FABLIX)
