SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Payment Management work center.
  2. Click New Incoming Check under Common Tasks.

For illustrating purposes, Incoming Check has been selected as payment method, however this remains true for outgoing checks and bank transfers.


The system automatically determines the Company and Currency details based on the last check created by the user.

In case you have never created a new check, the company and currency are not automatically populated, hence the fields remains in blank.


Once a first check is created, Company and Currency are populated according to the data used in the last check created by the user.

For example, if you create a check in USD, the next check that you create will have USD as default currency. If you change to EUR, the subsequent check will have EUR defaulted for your user.
