FICA Reconciliation Key
The SAP Module integration like SD-FI or MM-FI works seamlessly. For example when in SD, a legal invoice is created it creates an accounting document but the integration between FICA_FI is not seamless.
In FICA mostly the invoicing documents generates from various applications like Convergent Invoicing , ISU and etc. As the volume of the documents are very huge these are not directly transferred to FI. So here FICA servers as a sub-ledger kind of a thing. These huge volume of documents are combined/consolidated based on the concept of reconciliation key and finally as a batch processing these consolidated/summarized records are posted to the FI general ledger.
Reconciliation key :
-> A key in FICA used to prepare summary records to be posted to FI general ledger
-> Can be created manually and assigned during single invoice creation
->Automatically created and assigned to invoice documents in mass processing
