The remark field (RMK) in the F0411Z1 table is used to populate generic information on the voucher into the F0411 table when the voucher is created using Voucher Match Automation. This is a generic field that can be used by customers to provide further details on the transaction created at voucher match. There is no edit or validation on this data item, so users can input any information in this field to further describe the transaction being created, as long as it is within the 30 character limit defined in the data dictionary. Voucher Match Automation has recently been enhanced to change the functionality of how this field is populated in the F0411 from the F0411Z1 when either a blank value was entered or a manual input was entered either by the user or from a 3rd party system that creates the F0411Z1 record. Prior to this fix, if a blank value was populated in the RMK field in the F0411Z1 table, the Supplier’s Name would always be populated in the F0411 created when running Voucher Match Automation. If multiple F0411Z1 records were processed and the RMK value was manually populated, the same value was populated in all F0411 records that was created. Normally, when using the Interactive Application (P4314), this value would default from the value input on the PO Header (F4301) and can be manually overridden by the user after selecting the receipt/order to match. A change was made in the following objects to allow further flexibility when creating a voucher using Voucher Match Automation:
Voucher Match Automation Driver UBE - R4304010
Generate Automatic Voucher Match Cache - B4304000
After this fix, if a blank value is populated in the F0411Z1 table, this blank value will be retained when Voucher Match Automation is ran and the F0411 record is created. If the RMK field is populated in the F0411Z1 table, either manually by the end user or is brought in from a 3rd party system, this value will be populated in the F0411 table for each F0411Z1 record processed. This provides further flexibility for customers to properly populate this generic text field in the F0411 to provide more details on the voucher created.
