There are two ways to submit a bank statement item automatically now that SAP S/4HANA has included Processing Rules. either through a processing rule or a posting rule.

How to determine which bank statement items were uploaded by which technology is a topic we are asked frequently. You’ll learn how to quickly find this out in this blog post.

This blog post’s screenshots were all collected from a system running SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2208. Of course, both SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud systems can use this technique.

Let’s say your business added two automated reprocessing rules to the Manage Processing Rules app alongside the pre-delivered posting rules:

By selecting the columns on the settings wheel, you can quickly add the posting rule and processing rule columns to the list:

Applying a filter to the relevant column will only show bank statement items that were handled by the processing rule. For instance, simply choose the Filter icon by right-clicking the Processing Rule ID column header. You can now specify that you wish to see only the items from your bank statement using the processing rule “not empty”:

Please remember that the input field requires a space.

You can now view all of the bank statement items posted according to processing rules:

You’ve now seen how simple it is to determine which pieces of information on a bank statement were posted using which technology. I hope that working with Processing rules is made easier for you by this example.
