Exercise 17: Bank Master Data Exercise Objectives After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

Describe the connection between the bank account and the general ledger Change an entry in the bank directory Add the details of a new U.S. bank to the master record of a customer Business Example It is possible to perform all accounting-based business transactions involving direct incoming or outgoing payments centrally in bank accounting. Although some people refer to a bank ledger, bank accounting is not really a subledger module like accounts payable, accounts receivable or asset accounting; it does not have subledger master records. Instead, all bank accounts are represented by G/L accounts. Task 1 Identify bank accounts Every IDES company code has accounts at one or more house banks. Every bank account is assigned to exactly one G/L account. On the general ledger, this G/L account reflects all postings performed by the bank on the assigned bank account. In company code 1000, for example, G/L account 113100 is a G/L account representing a bank account. 1. Take a look in the company code-specific settings of G/L account 113100 to see which bank account this G/L account represents. Transaction FSS0

Task 2 Change the bank directory The bank directory contains the name and addresses of all banks in a certain country. You can access the bank directory both from subledger accounting and from bank accounting when entering bank details in a customer master data record, for example. In some countries (Germany and the U.S., for example), it is possible to automatically and regularly update the bank directory using a file available from the banks and an import report. However, if you are aware of changes to bank data from accounting in advance, you can also enter these manually. 1. The bank group UNI Bank has been taken over by the bank group Interbank. Change the description of the bank with bank key 900000## from UNI Bank## to Interbank##.

Task 4 Display the new bank in the bank directory The bank directory is a list of banks that have been entered in your system.
