Transaction Codes and Dunning procedures in SAP FI module

Dunning in SAP notifies your customers for their overdue outstanding balance. While creating a customer master we have to mention the data and correspondence details that are related to the customer under the “correspondence” tab.

SAP processes the line items and prints dunning notices with the name and address of the customer and the test that you specify. The dunning program selects the overdue open items, determines the level of the account in question, and creates dunning notices.

It then saves the dunning data determined for the items and accounts affected. You can use Dunning in SAP to dun for both customers and vendors. It may be necessary to dun a vendor in the case of a debit balance as a result of a credit memo.

A dunning level determines how often an account will be dunned. In SAP only eight dunning levels for a customer are allowed.
