Reassigning Checks to Payment Documents

SAP Reassigning Checks

Query Title: Checks assigned to Incorrect Payments

Two invoices A & B were entered into the system using transaction FB60, then they were both paid using transaction F-53. Two checks were then assigned to the payments using transaction FCH5. However the checks that were assigned were in a different order from the ones that were actually written. For example, check B was assigned to invoice A and check A was assigned to invoice B. We would like to correct this issue by reassigning the correct check numbers to the correct payments.

Step 4 - You can verify this using transaction FCHN – check register: fill in your company code and check numbers. Your output will show the document # and the new check assignment.
