2074718 - Advice Required Indicator is Set Although not Required in the Master Data


You noticed that the Advice Required is set to Yes in a payment order, however the Remittance Advice Required was not set as required in the account's master.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Payment Management work center.
  2. Go to Payment Monitor view.
  3. Select a payment and refer to the Advice Required field set to Yes on the Details section.


You have created a payment with reference to many invoices, however, for reasons of memo line restriction, not all invoices could be considered in the payment file, therefore a memo line note about a payment advice is created, based on the payment correspondence profiles, in order to explain the invoice that could not have been added, thus the Advice Required indicator is set, although Remittance Advice Required is not set in the master data.


The system works as designed. Nevertheless, note that in case you have created the payment medium, e.g. Bank Transfer, manually, the advice will not be automatically created nor the system would abort the payment file creation in case the advice is not issued. The Advice Required indicator itself is the indication that the advice needs to be sent. In case the advice has to be sent automatically, then you have to schedule a Payment Media Run via Payment Management work center.
