SAP Accounts Payable

Process description

The Accounts Payable process is a process which revolves around receiving invoices and paying vendors and is part of the purchase-to-pay process.

The end-to-end process typically starts with a purchase request and ends with the payment of the invoice, covering the following processes in the procurement lifecycle:

The Accounts Payable app template focusses mostly on the Payment process.

Buying

The process starts with a buyer from the company who wants to buy some goods. The buyer requests the purchase, using a purchase requisition. Procurement is involved to get the best deal. This could mean negotiation for a new contract or adapting to an already available contract. Procurement converts the requisition to a purchase order and makes sure the missing information is filled where needed. Procurement approves the purchase order (PO), which is then sent to the vendor.

Delivery

The warehouse department (if available) waits for the goods to be received. When goods arrive, the inventory is checked and updated. The goods are received by the initial buyer, who accepts the goods.

Payment

The finance department awaits the invoice to be received. When the invoice arrives, it is administrated. The invoice is paid by accounts payable. Accounting administrates the payment.

Available tags & due dates

The following tags are available by default.

Tag Description
Invoice received before goods received The invoice was received before the goods were received.

The following due dates are available by default.

Due date Description
Late payment The invoice was paid too late, after the net payment period expired.

Extraction

System configuration

This app template uses the Material Management (MM) and Financial Accounting (FI) modules of SAP.

Extraction tool configuration

The data extraction is developed for SAP and is using Theobald Xtract Universal. In general, you should follow the steps as described in Loading Data Using Theobald Xtract Universal (Automation Cloud) to set up data loading using Theobald Xtract Universal. Note: If you are using Automation Suite, make sure to select AUTOMATION SUITE as the DELIVERY option on the documentation page. In addition, select the Automation Suite version you are using to open the appropriate Loading Data Using Theobald Xtract Universal page.

Importing the template extractions

  1. Download the XU_template_extractions.zip file with template extractions for Automation Cloud or the XU_template_extractions_as.zip file with template extractions for Automation Suite.
  2. This file contains the folders destinations, extractions, and sources. Copy the folders from the downloaded zip file to the config folder of Xtract Universal. The location of this folder is [XU_installation_path]/config.
  3. Open Xtract Universal Designer and click on the refresh button to load all extractions.

Configuring the extraction script

  1. Download the extract_theobald.zip file to load data for Automation Cloud or extract_theobald_as.zip to load data for Automation Suite.
  2. This file contains the extract_theobald.ps1 script and the config.json file. Unzip the content on the server where Theobald Xtract Universal is installed.
  3. Configure the variables for the script.

Design details

Accounting documents without invoice

The SAP system allows accounting documents in the BKPF table to be created in multiple ways. The default way is when an invoice (in the RBKP table) is created and released into accounting. However, it is also possible to create an accounting document without an invoice. In this case the accounting document is linked to purchase order items directly, using the EBELN and EBELP fields available on the BSIK and BSAK tables. This sub-process is used to gather additional events for the event log, which is done in the Entity_relations.sql table.

Change log

The Change log, created by joining the CDHDR and CDPOS tables, is not an entity on its own, but is used for all entities to generate the corresponding events. By default the Change log contains only changes for the default activities, gained by filtering on the FNAME field from the CDPOS table during data extraction.

For each entity its 'change events' are created as follows:

Automated events

An event can be labeled as automated. This is dependent on the user_type associated with the event. The user_type stems from the USR02 table. If the value of the field USTYP is B or C, meaning System or Communications Data, respectively, the event is labeled as 'Automated'.

Currency conversion

Price-related information is given in a certain currency. These prices and corresponding currency are stored in the document tables. These currencies vary between items. To be able to analyze all of them in one app template, all prices are converted from their document currency to a single currency, referred to as the reporting currency. This conversion is done based on the exchange rate information stored in the TCURR, TCURF, and TCURX tables. In case the exchange rates listed are an indirect rate, they contain a - to indicate this.

For both accounting documents and purchase order items the currency conversion takes place in two steps:

The local currency is the currency of the company. This local currency can be found in the company table T001. On the document table there is an exchange rate available to convert the document currency to the local currency. This exchange rate can be the same as the exchange rate in the currency exchange rate table TCURR or manually adjusted to any other rate. The conversion to the reporting currency is again done based on the exchange rate information in the currency information tables as mentioned above.
