Difference Between Parking and Holding of Documents

The ‘Parking of a Document’ in SAP is one of the two preliminary postings (the other being the ‘Holding’ of documents) in the system and refers to the storing of incomplete documents in the system. These documents can later be called on for completion and posting. While ‘parking’ a document, the system does not carry out the mandatory ‘validity checking.’ The system does not also carry out any automatic postings (such as creating tax line items) or ‘balance checks.’ As a result, the transaction figures (account balances) are not updated. This is true in the case of all financial transactions except in the area of TR-CM (Cash management) where ‘parked’ documents will update the transactions. Read more

What is Document in SAP?

SAP is based on the ‘document principle’ meaning that a document is created out of every business transaction in the system. The Document is the result of a posting in accounting in SAP, and is the connecting link between various business operations. There are two types of documents:

  1. Original Documents: these documents relate to the origin of business transactions such as invoices, receipts, statement of accounts from bank, etc.
  2. Processing Documents: These include ‘accounting documents’ generated from postings in the system, ‘reference documents,’ ‘sample documents,’ etc. The processing documents other than the accounting ones are also known as ‘special documents’ and they aid in the simplification of document entry in the system.

Batch Data Communication/Batch Input/Inbound-Outbound

When a company decides  to  implement  the SAP R/3 to manage business critical data,  it usually does not start from a no-data situation. Normally, a SAP R/3 project comes into replace or complement existing application. In the process of replacing current applications and transferring application  data, two situations might occur:

  • The first is when application data to be replaced  is transferred at once, and only once.
  • The second situation is to transfer data periodically from external systems to SAP and vice versa.
  • There  is a period of   time when  information has  to be  transferred  from existing application, to SAP R/3, and often this process will be repetitive.
