Slide 19 R/3 FinanceResearching Transactions Uploading a string of document numbers into R/3
Slide 20 FB03Financial Accounting Document Display This is a useful transaction to research work items, but most users use it by entering one transaction or document number at a time. Multiple Document Numbers But today…were going to show you how to get a series of transaction numbers and upload them in bulk to FB03 to make your researching easier. Please Note: This is going to be relevant for FI documents such online payment, petty cash, accounts receivable, etc.
Slide 21 In our example, were going to look at the Sponsored Revenue- Expense Detail – Single Period Report. Well use it to generate a report with document numbers that well import into FB03. Well start at the JHU Controllers web site (www.controller.jhu.edu) and go to the H1 Knowledge Portal tab.www.controller.jhu.edu Multiple Document Numbers Click on BW Report Formats
Slide 22 Using a booked marked formatted report. Multiple Document Numbers Click on Formatted Report
Slide 23 If youre not already logged in to SAP, youll be prompted to do so and after youve logged in, youll be taken to the variable screen for the Sponsored Revenue-Expense Detail – Single Period Report. Enter an account number (in our case, an Internal Order) and a date period. Then Check and Execute the report. Multiple Document Numbers Once youve entered an account number and period, click Execute.
Slide 24 For this tip, were interested in the FI Document numbers column. Multiple Document Numbers We want to grab a range of these numbers to import into R/3. We can do this a couple of ways. One is to highlight them in the BW results screen and do Control C to copy; another is to export the results into Excel, and then select the range from Excel.
Slide 25 Here weve exported to Excel and gone down into the rows to select a range of transaction numbers we want to research. In this example, weve selected travel transactions. Highlight the range of numbers and hit Control C to copy them to your clipboard. Multiple Document Numbers
