Business scenario– FCHF is used to delete information on checks created manually.
E.g., you wrote a check by hand for $100 to Joe Smith. The Amount is correct, and everything on the check is correct, but this check should have been created om company 1000, but you created the check on company 2000.
We can’t void or cancel the check as we have given the check to the vendor and everything on the physical check is correct.
The issue is with the check in SAP. We need to delete the check so we can use the same check number again in sap, but this time, we will assign it to the right company code.
Enter the following info
Paying company code- This is the company that is paying the invoice and the one that issued the check. This differs from the invoice company code in situations where the invoice is on company A, and company B pays it.
House Bank-The house bank that issued the check. Ensure that you have the right house bank by entering the details in FCH1 display check info.
Account-ID – The Account ID of the check. Enter this info in FCH1 to ensure you have the right info.
Check number- The check number that you are deleting. Ensure you padd this with zeroes if required.
Hit Enter, and you will see the box below popup.
Click on Yes to delete the info, if you have verified that all the info is correct.
You will get a message check number xxxxx successfully deleted.
Now we need to create this check (with the same number) but with the right info. E.g., the company code might have been incorrect on the previous check.

1- Payment document no.- The document number that cleared the invoice
