Create a manual check
FCH5 is used to create a manual check. This means that the check is not printed from SAP, but you write this check manually from a checkbook.
Create a check using the menu path below.
or by directly entering the transaction code FCH5
In order to create a check, you need a payment document no. The payment document number is the document that cleared the invoice.
E.g., if there was an invoice for $100 that you had to pay to a vendor and you paid the $100 invoice with document 5000010. The document 5000010 is the payment document number.
Enter the payment document number, the paying company code and the Fiscal year.
1-House bank– Enter the house bank from which you are writing this check.
A house bank contains a bank key and is linked to an account id and account number. E.g., if the routing number on your checkbook is 1234555 and your bank is Chase, you can create a house bank called Chase.

2-Account ID– Each house bank is linked to one or multiple account ids. This is required as one house bank can have more than one account number. e.g., if you have account 123 for wires and account 789 for check payments.
Each of these would have a different account id, and the account-ID is linked to the unique account number.
You are entering the account id from which you are cutting the check
3-Check number- When you create a check lot in sap for manual checks, these numbers should match with the numbers in your physical checkbook.
Enter the number that you see on your physical check. E.g., if you are writing a check and the number on there is 100, enter that number in the sap screen
click on enter and in the next screen
Enter the payment date, currency, amount and the vendor’s address.
Click on save
The check number has been created.
After you create the check, you should be able to view the check from the payment document number, i.e., they should be linked.
Enter the tcode FBl1n to view the vendor link items to pull up the vendor line items to view the payment document number.
enter the vendor number, company code, etc. to view the document number.
after executing it, the line items of this vendor show up.
Select the payment document for which you want to view the check information and click on the environment- check information.
This takes you to the tcode FCH1- display check information.
This shows that your check was created correctly and it is linked to the payment document number.
