SAP SD Schedule Line Categories

' src=

Moreover, SAP SD schedule line categories will control several aspects:

  • Whether an item is relevant for delivery.
  • Will an availability check be performed for an item.
  • Which movement type will be used during goods issue / goods receipt in the delivery process.
  • Whether the material is procured externally (by using third party processing).

If you go to the schedule line details, you will find SAP SD schedule line categories assigned to each item.

Most of Sales Order Types Use SAP SD Schedule Line Category “CP”

Click on the Shipping tab. The dates there are determined according to SAP SD schedule line categories configuration.

SAP SD Schedule Line Categories Determine Dates on Shipping Tab

SAP SD schedule line categories are identified by two alphanumeric characters as explained in the table below. Each character for SAP SD schedule line categories carries different meaning.

There are numerous SAP SD schedule line categories in the standard SAP ERP. I list some of them which most transactions use as shown in the table below.

Later in this document you will learn that SAP SD schedule line category is assigned to the combination of SAP SD item category and MRP type. The detailed discussion regarding these two separate objects will not be covered in this document.

Define SAP SD Schedule Line Categories

To meet your business requirement, you can create custom SAP SD schedule line categories. In this document, I am going explain the steps you should perform to achieve it. It is recommended to create a new category by copying it from the standard with minor adjustments.

Go to transaction VOV6 (or with the menu path SPRO – Sales and Distribution – Sales – Sales Documents – Schedule Lines – Define Schedule Line Categories ). Select one of the categories. I’m using “CP” for the example here.

List of Standard SAP SD Schedule Line Categories

Change the key and update the description.

Look at the right side, there is a checkbox for “item relevant delivery”. This indicator means that the item in a sales document will be relevant for delivery.

You may want to change the goods movement type here. But I’m going to leave it with 601 movement type. This will allow the system to perform posting of goods issue.

Example of a Customized SAP SD Schedule Line Category

Press Enter and a new pop up will be shown. It will ask you whether you want to copy the copy control from the original schedule line category. Click “Yes” to proceed.

Depending on your system-client type, you might be asked to create a new change request.

A Confirmation Dialog Screen Asking for Copy Control Relevancy

Assign SAP SD Schedule Line Categories

SAP SD schedule line categories are automatically determined by the SAP system based on item category and MRP type. The automatic determination works based on the configuration that we are going to perform in the next steps.

Run the transaction VOV5 (or with the menu path SPRO – Sales and Distribution – Sales – Sales Documents – Schedule Lines – Define Schedule Line Categories ).

Find a standard combination of item category and MRP Type, and do the copy process. Change to the customized pre-defined item category, then assign your new schedule line category to the first white field (proposed schedule line category) as the first priority.

You may also add other categories to the manual schedule line category fields. By doing this, you are allow manual updates of SAP SD schedule line categories during execution of transactions. You will find that you are able to enter up to nine SAP SD schedule line categories.

Create New Assignment by Copying the Standard One

Now click Save button.

A New Assignment will be Created

Example – Schedule Line Category CS

In third party sales processing, a sales order will trigger automatic creation of purchase requisition which is resulted from the special schedule line category CS. In the standard SAP configuration, CS is specifically assigned to TAS item category without MRP type. However, the standard CS is not relevant for delivery. Hence, it will not have a movement type.

If you have a business requirement where the externally procured goods is received and delivered to the customer from our premise, you need a slight adjustment.

1. Create a new schedule line category by copying the standard “CS”.

Using Standard Schedule Line Category is Preferable

2. Rename it, enter the goods movement type (601).

3. Enter the order type (purchase requisition type).

4. Change the item category to standard (0).

5. Change the account assignment group to M.

6. Check the relevance for delivery and purchase requisition delivery scheduling. It will determine arrival of goods to our plant.

Different Fields that You May Customize

7. Click Save button.

8. Assign the new schedule line category to the item category in transaction VOV5 .

Notice the MRP Type is Blank for the New Assignment

9. Then save the assignment.

10. You can test the transaction by calling the designated item category and it will trigger a new screen for creation of a purchase requisition.

A Screen for Creation of Purchase Requisition will Appear

11. Click Save and open the new document. Go to the schedule line tab in item details. You will find that a new purchase requisition number has been created.

New Purchase Requisition will be Created for Third Party Sales Order

2 thoughts on “SAP SD Schedule Line Categories”

Hi. I am stuck on the Schedule line category CS, step 8. It requires that we assign to the item category. I do not know which item category to assign to, and why you chose ZB12. Please explain

I supposed you already figure it out, but he chose ZB12 because that’s his Iterm category of the Sales Document. On the other hand, the Item category 0 (zero) assigned to the schedule line belongs to the Purchase document. When you perform the assignation, you use the Sales Doc Item Cat.

Account Assignment Category in Material Management

Account Assignment Category used in Purchase Order, to categorize nature of procurement, which is procured  for direct Material or consumption.On the basis of account assignment category separate GL can be assign.

The account assignment category determines the following based on the account assignment data already configured/available in the SAP R/3 system:

  • The nature of the account assignment
  • Which accounts are to be charged when goods receipt is posted
  • Which accounts are to be charged when the incoming invoice are posted
  • Which account assignment data you must provide

An important Account Assignment Categories along with required account assignment data are highlighted below:

Production order —  PP module is configured with its all sub modules and production order is already available into the system.

Cost Center —  Relevant cost center with proper assignment is created into the SAP. In addition to the Cost Center, a G/L account number also needs to be available for the purpose.

Sales Order —  SD module is configured with its all sub modules and Sales order is already available into the system. In addition to the Sales Order, a G/L account number also needs to be available for the purpose.

  • When entering an item on the item overview screen, specify the account assignment category for the item.
  • Choose Item  ®  Account assignments.
  • Enter the account assignment data that is dependent on the account assignment category.
  • If additional information is available on a specific account assignment, the More field is displayed.
  • If you wish to enter further items with the same account assignment data, choose Account assignment. On the account assignment data will then automatically be adopted in the next item.
  • Branch to the item overview and repeat the process if necessary.
  • Save the purchase order.
  • How the net value of a PO item to be distributed is (apportioned) among the individual account assignment items?
  • How are the costs to be apportioned if only a part of the ordered quantity has been delivered and invoiced?
  • When entering an item, specify the account assignment category for the desired item on the item overview screen.
  • To do so, choose Item  ®  Account assignments.
  • Enter the account assignment data for the first account assignment item.
  • In the item fields (upper part of this screen) enter the relevant data:
  • For each account assignment item, enter either the quantity  or  the percentage of the total value to be charged to the relevant account assignment item.
  • Repeat as necessary for other items.

How Customer Account Groups in SAP SD are created | Saphanatutor.com

Introduction to customer account groups in sap sd.

Customer Account groups in SAP SD are essential for effectively managing and organizing customer and vendor data. They play a key role in defining the structure and attributes of customer and vendor master records. Below are some of their critical functions:

Table of Contents

Purpose of Account Group

  • Field Selection Control : Account groups determine which fields in the master record are mandatory, optional, or hidden. This standardization ensures consistency and completeness in data entry.

Field Selection Control

  • Number Range Definition : Account groups assign specific number ranges to customer or vendor accounts. This assignment dictates whether account numbers are generated automatically by the system or entered manually.
  • Master Data Management : These groups control the maintenance of master data for customers or vendors. This includes creating, modifying, and viewing master records.
  • Customer/Vendor Classification : Account groups classify customers or vendors into distinct categories, simplifying management and analysis. For example, they can differentiate between domestic and international customers.

In SAP S/4HANA Sales, standard customer account groups are essential for managing customer master data, each serving specific roles in sales transactions. These include:

  • Sold-To Party (SP) : Customers who receive goods or services.
  • Ship-To Party (SH) : Customers to whom goods or services are delivered.
  • Bill-To Party ( BP ) : Customers responsible for invoice payments.
  • Payer (PY) : Customers who make the actual payments.
  • Contact Person (CP) : Individuals serving as contact points at customer locations.

These account groups organize customer data efficiently, catering to different aspects of sales and distribution processes in SAP S/4HANA. These standard account groups are designed to address typical business scenarios in SAP systems. They can be adjusted or augmented with new groups to align better with specific business processes and needs.

Step by step process to create Customer Account Groups in SAP SD

In this SAP Sd tutorial , we are creating a new customer account group called “ SAHT ” with a number range “ ZS ” . In SAP SD creating Account groups are like setting up a new category in your customer database. You’ll give it a name, maybe a description that explains it’s for customers related to  products, and then assign a unique code “ ZS ” to identify customers in this group.

  • Create Number range intervals for customer Account groups.
  • Create Customer Account Groups and assign the number ranges intervals.

Creating Customer Account Groups in SAP SD (OVT0)

First, log into the SAP system using your credentials. Then, go to the section where you manage customer account groups, using a specific code (like OVT0 ). Here, you’ll add a new entry for your “SAHT” group.

  • Transaction code : OVT0
  • Img path : SPRO => Logistics general => Business partner => Customer control => define a/c group and field selection for customer.

Creating Customer Account Groups in SAP SD (OVT0)

Select the Standard Account Group “0001” (Sold to party) and define your own Account Group (SHT) as shown below.

Creating Customer Account Groups in SAP SD (OVT0)

As shown below, enter your desired Account name and select the number ranges that created earlier.

SAP SD FI Integration and Account Determination

Sales Integration

SAP Sales & Distribution deals with sales to customers. So it a process where sales is made to customer against sales order and revenue is realized. That,s why SD is also called O2C (Order to Cash).

Table of Contents

1. Preparation for SD-FI Integration

We will create the sales order first . Then on the basis of sales order, we will create outbound delivery. At the time of goods issue to outbound delivery, system posts the respective amount to the corresponding GL account. This is SD-FI integration area.

1.1 Creation of Sales Order & Outbound Delivery

In the below post the process of sales order creation, Outbound delivery creation & subsequently PGI (Post Goods Issue) has been explained step by step.

2. SD-FI Integration starts From PGI of OBD

In the above post we have explained that since SD-FI configuration is still not done, so as soon as we tried to post goods issue to outbound delivery, system throws the below error.

2.1 Accounting entries at PGI

At the time of goods issue , stock is lessened by the quantity & value equal to the quantity & value of goods issue.

The offsetting entry is done on COGS (Cost of Goods Sold) account

As soon as we tried to post goods issue system throws the error due to absence of SD-FI integration configuration

2.1.1 First Error M8147 -Account determination for entry PPIN GBB not possible

This error is coming because of absence of configuration of inventory offsetting. We need to configure account determination of VAX key

VAX: for goods issues for sales orders without account assignment object (the account is not a cost element)

COGS account at the time of goods issue is determined based on this key.

For our car business GBB-VAX posting is done on GL 550200000 (PPIN-Cost of Goods Sold (Trade w/o Cost Element).

Please click HERE to check the creation of GL 550200000 step by step

Start OBYC and double click on GBB

what is account assignment category in sap sd

3. Now try to post Goods Issue again

After GBB VAX configuration now try to post PGI again

3.1 Error NR751

what is account assignment category in sap sd

3.1.1 Number Range 49 Maintenance for object RF_BELEG

what is account assignment category in sap sd

Try PGI now

PGI is done successfully this time

Material document & accounting document is generated

3.2 FI Postings (SD-FI Integration OBD PGI Part)

System creates a material document to update the quantity in the Plant/SLOC. On the back of it, system generates an accounting document to post the values on the respective GL accounts.

what is account assignment category in sap sd

3.2.1 Reminder -Check the FI document above in light of the Material Pricing

Check the material price i the material master “Accounting 1” view.

what is account assignment category in sap sd

4. Account Determination in SD

Account determination in SD is also called revenue account determination

We have configured our own customized pricing procedure in the post below

The Ultimate SAP S4 HANA Sales Pricing Guide with FAQ

what is account assignment category in sap sd

Account Keys (for example ERL, ERS, MWS etc. in the above screenshot) are assigned to the different conditions in the pricing procedures.

4.1 Account Assignment Groups for Materials

Account assignment groups are used to classify a material as a product, service, or equipment for the purpose of GL account differentiation.

SPRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Check Master Data Relevant For Account Assignment –> Define Account Assignment Groups for Materials

We have defined below account assignment groups for materials.

what is account assignment category in sap sd

Account keys are assigned to the material master record on the material sales org 2 view.

4.2 Account Assignment Groups for Customers

Account assignment groups for customers are useful if we want to post let,s say domestic sales revenue into different account while international sales revenue should be posted into different account.

SPRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Check Master Data Relevant For Account Assignment –> Define Account Assignment Groups for Customers

what is account assignment category in sap sd

4.3 Define Access Sequences and Account Determination Types

The Standard SAP has two condition types: KOFI (account determination) and KOFK (account determination with CO).

For our car business we will use the standard condition type KOFI, which uses the access sequence with the key KOFI.

The KOFI access sequence has five condition tables assigned to it

S PRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Define Access Sequences and Account Determination Types –> Define Access Sequences for Revenue Account Determination

what is account assignment category in sap sd

S PRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Define Access Sequences and Account Determination Types –> Define Account Determination Types

We can now allocate our chosen access sequence KOFI to the relevant account determination type (condition type) of our pricing procedure.

what is account assignment category in sap sd

4.4 Define & Assign Account Determination Procedures

Here we define account determination procedures and allocate them to the billing types.

In an account determination procedure, we define the sequence in which the system should read the account determination types (condition types).

S PRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Define And Assign Account Determination Procedures –> Define account determination procedure

what is account assignment category in sap sd

S PRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Define And Assign Account Determination Procedures –> Assign Account Determination Procedure

Here we will assign our account determination procedure YPPIN0 to our customized billing type YF2

what is account assignment category in sap sd

Please click HERE to check the configuration of our billing type “YF2”

4.5 Define And Assign Account Keys

We define account keys here and allocate them to the condition types in the pricing procedures. We have already defined and assigned account keys to our pricing procedure PPIN01

S PRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Define And Assign Account Keys –> Assign Account Keys

With the account keys, we group together similar accounts in financial accounting.

Using the account key, system finds the relevant GL account.

what is account assignment category in sap sd

4.6 Assign G/L Accounts (VKOA)

Here based on the access sequence of tables for KOFI, we will select the table “001” Cust.Grp/MaterialGrp/AcctKey. Here we will assign all the relevant GL accounts.

what is account assignment category in sap sd

Below are the components for GL assignment

S PRO –> IMG –> Sales and Distribution –> Basic Functions –> Account Assignment/Costing –> Revenue Account Determination –> Assign G/L Accounts

We have created GL account corresponding to the every key of our pricing determination.

Now assign all the three GL accounts to the respective keys

what is account assignment category in sap sd

4.7 Assign G/L Accounts For Tax Posting

Here we first create the tax account for output tax and assign this to the respective key (MWS)

GL 222000000 – PPIN-Output Tax (MWS) will be used to post tax amount.

Please see HERE to see the step by step GL 222000000 account creation

Assign the GL for tax posting as per the below

SPRO –> IMG –> Financial Accounting Global Settings –> Tax on Sales/Purchases –> Posting –> Define Tax Accounts

what is account assignment category in sap sd

4.8 Tax Accounts Keys MW1, MW2 & MW3

Since tax keys MW1, MW2 & MW3 are given in our output tax determination schema so system will post the tax amounts on the GL accounts corresponding to these three keys

We have given GL 222000000 for all the three tax keys

what is account assignment category in sap sd

5. Create Billing

now the next part of the O2C cycle is to post the billing. At the time of billing system will post the respective values onto the determined & assigned GL accounts as per the revenue account determination procedure.

start VF01 and input our Outbound delivery number

Create the billing and click on

Billing Documents –> Release to Accounting

system throws the below error

5.1 Error KI235 -GL requires an account assignment relevant to cost accounting

system throws the below error.

what is account assignment category in sap sd

To resolve this error we need to activate profit center accounting as well as cost center accounting for our controlling area.

5.1.1 Profit Center Accounting

First we need to set our controlling area PPIN to set up Profit Center Accounting.

Then we need to maintain the global settings for Profit Center Accounting in our controlling area PPIN.

5.1.1.1 Controlling Area setting for Profit Center Accounting

We will set our controlling area PPIN

SPRO –> IMG –> Controlling –> Profit Center Accounting –> Profit Center Accounting –> Set Controlling Area

what is account assignment category in sap sd

5.1.1.2 Maintain Controlling Area setting

Account assignment in SAP Purchasing (MM) – FAQ

SAP Purchase Order ME21N Exit e1472546229483

This note provides answers to frequently asked questions regarding account assignment in purchasing documents. This post is based on Snote 496082.

Table of Contents

FAQ: Account Assignement in SAP Purchasing

Account assignement : g/l account for a sales order.

Question: Why is the G/L account for a sales order with nonvaluated individual sales order stock different from the account with valuated indivi dual sales order stock?

Answer: See Note 458270.

Multiple Account Assignment in Purchasing

Question: Can you create several assets at the same time in the new purchasing transactions?

Answer: You can create several assets at the same time. However, you must first ensure that at least as many account assignment lines have bee n created as the number of assets that you want to create. You can do this very easily using the copy function.

G/L Account is not saved if switch to a material group

Question: You create a purchase order with account assignment using transaction ME22. You enter a material group, from which a G/L account is de termined using the valuation class. If you then switch to a material group that does not determine a G/L account via the valuation class, the system deletes the previous G/L account and prompts you to enter a G/L account. If you cancel the account assignment screen and change the material group back on the item detail screen, the previously determined G/L account is not determined again. Why is this ?

Answer: Unfortunately, this system behavior cannot be changed. First, enter any G/L account, so that the item is valid. If you then switch to the old material group again, the system also determines the correct G/L account again.

Entering the same account assignments for different items

Question: Is there an easy way of entering the same account assignments for different items in the new EnjoySAP transactions?

Answer: Ensure that Note 315676 has been implemented in your system and follow the procedure described there

Repeat account assignment function not work in the new EnjoySAP

Question: Why does the repeat acc. assignment function not work in the new EnjoySAP transactions when you create new account assignments in multiple acc. assign. ?

Solution: Use the copy function in multiple acc. assignment to create identical account assignment lines. You can use the repeat account assi gnment function to create similar account assignments for different items with the same account assignment category. To do this, proce ed as described in the answer to question 4.

Issue message KI 161 “Cost center &/& does n ot exist on &

Question: When you change the account assignment of an existing purchase order, why does the system issue message KI 161 “Cost center &/& does n ot exist on &” ? The same phenomenon occurs for other account assignment objects (for example, profit center).

Solution: Refer to Note 193371.

Can you create assets from the single account assignment screen?

Solution: Assets can only be created from the multiple account assignment screen (“Account assignment” tab). You can switch between single account assignment and multiple account assignment on the “Account assignment” tab page by clicking the icon above on the left.

Why does the system not display an account assignment tab page even though you have entered an account assignment category?

Solution: After you have implemented Note 520149, the account assignment tab is not displayed until all the required information is available, for example, the company code.

Why are account assignment objects derived in some situations, even though the relevant field on the account assignment tab page is hidden?

Solution: Refer to Note 619203.

ME 453 “Changing consump. or spec. stock indicator not allowed

You create a purchase order with reference to a subcontracting purchase requisition. This purchase requisition was created with an unknown account assignment, that is, account assignment category “U”. When you change the account assignment category in the purchase order, the system issues error message ME 453 “Changing consump. or spec. stock indicator not allowed (subcontracting)”.

Solution: See Note 205597

Select a valuated goods receipt together with multiple account assignment

Why can you not select a valuated goods receipt together with multiple account assignment in a purchase order or purchase requisition?

Solution: See Note 204252.

EBAN-FISTL, -GEBER, -KBLNR, -GRANT and -FKBER (as in table EKPO) empty

Funds Management is active. Why are the fields EBAN-FISTL, -GEBER, -KBLNR, -GRANT and -FKBER (as in table EKPO) empty? Solution: These fields are only filled if the account assignment category is set to “blank”. If you maintain an account assignment category in t he purchasing document, the system adds the information from these fields to the EBKN table (as in EKKN).

AA 334 “You cannot post to this asset (Asset & & blocked for acquisitions)

You try to change a purchase order item with acc. assignment category “A”, which contains a locked asset. The system issues error message AA 334 “You cannot post to this asset (Asset & & blocked for acquisitions)”. Solution: This is the standard system design. To make changes to this purchase order item, you have the following two options:

a) If you no longer require the purchase order item with the blocked asset, delete the purchase order item. b) Otherwise, you must activate the asset, make the required changes to the purchase order item, and then block the asset again.

The indicator for the account assignment screen

Question: What is the meaning of the indicator for the account assign. screen that you can set in Customizing for single account assignment/m ultiple account assignment? Solution: The indicator determines which account assignment screen is used by default for maintaining the account assign. for a purchase orde r item. For the EnjoySAP transactions, this value is simply a proposal that you can change in the purchasing document. For the old transactions, this value is the only one that you can use.

Question: Is there an unknown account assign. for standard purchase orders?

Solution: This is generally not allowed, and the system issues message ME 069 “Unknown account assignment not defined for use here”. There is an exception in the case of service items that are created with item category D (service) or B (limit).

Acc. Assignment check is not performed when Purchase Order is updated

Question: You change data in a purchase order item (for example, purchase order value, delivery date, and so on). Why does the system not perform another acc. assignment check?

Solution: This is the standard system design. When you created the purchase order item, if the system already checked the acc. assignment and there were no errors, another acc.?assignment check only takes place if you change a field that is relevant to account assign.?(for example, quantity, material number, and so on). If this system response does not meet your requirements, implement the account assignment check in the BAdI ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST. The BA dI is called each time the purchase order is changed.

“In case of account assignment, please enter acc. assignment data for item”

Question: If you delete all the account assign?lines that were entered in the account assignment screen, the system exits the account assign. tab page and goes to the material data. In addition, the system issues the error message “In case of account assignment, please enter acc. assignment data for item”.

Answer: In the current system design, if you delete all the account assignment lines, the system assumes that you do not want to maintain any account assignment data. This conflicts with the account assignment category and the system issues error message 06 436. You can then remove the account assignment indicator. Procedure: If you want to delete all the account assignment data that was entered, see the answer to question 24.

Third-party order processing (CS) and individual purchase order processing (CB)

Question: Which account assignment categories should you enter in schedule line categories for third-party order processing (CS) and individual purchase order processing (CB)? Solution: See Note 210997.

G/L Account is not transfered from Valuation class

Question: In a blanket purchase order or blanket purchase requisition with account assignment, you subsequently change the material group. Even though the new material group is assigned to another G/L account via the valuation class, the system does not redetermine the account assignment for the relevant item. The old G/L account remains.

Solution: See Note 449216.

Customizing Account assignment fields as required entry, optional entry, or display fields

Question: In Customizing, you can set the, or as completely hidden fields, depending on the account assignment category. These settings also determine whether the system deletes or retains the values for the account assignment fields when you change the account assignment category in a purchase order item.

Answer: In Customizing for materials management (MM), when you maintain account assignment categories (IMG: Materials Management-> Purchasing -> Account Assignment-> Maintain Account Assignment Categories), you can control the different account assignment fields as follows: Required entry: You must make an entry in the field, otherwise the system issues error message ME 083.

  • Optional entry: Entry in this field is optional.
  • Display: The field is displayed, but it is not ready for input.
  • Hidden: The field is hidden. Example:

The acc. assignment category is K, the cost center is an optional entry field and it is filled with the value 1000. You change the acc. assignment category to P. Subject to the field settings for the cost center for the acc. assignment category P, the system response is as follows: The cost center is a required entry or an optional entry field: The system transfers the value 1000 for the cos t center.The cost center is a display field: First, the value 1000 for the cost center is deleted. If the system can determine a value again after you enter the changed acc. assignment category, this value is transferred. The cost center is a hidden field: The system deletes the value 1000 for the cost center.

System ignores the acc. assignment data of the purchase requisition for the second schedule line.

Question: You create a purchase order item assigned to an account with reference to a purchase requisition. For this purchase order item, you create a second schedule line with reference to another purchase requisition. The system ignores the acc. assignment data of the purchase requisition for the second schedule line. Solution: This is the standard system design. The system does not generate multiple acc. assignment in the purchase order item, even if the t wo referenced purchase requisitions are assigned to different CO objects. Refer to Note 47150 for the old transactions and to Notes 422609 and 771045 for the EnjoySAP transactions.

Undelete an item in a purchase requisition if assignment data is no longer valid

Question: Why can you undelete an item in a purchase requisition if the corresponding acc. assignment data is no longer valid? Solution: When you undelete an item in a purchase requisition, the system does not perform a new acc. assignment check. Therefore, the accoun t assignment data is not checked again. Nevertheless, errors occur if you try to create a purchase order with reference to this purchase requisition. When you undelete an item in a purchase order, however, the system does perform another acc. assignment check.

Transfer of Acc. Assign. with Reference Document

Question: You create a purchasing document with reference to a reference document. What account assig. data is transferred? Solution: The acc. assignment data is derived from the reference document. If you delete the acc.?assignment category and enter it again, a new automatic general ledger account determination takes place.

Question What is the correct procedure for changing acc. assignment data?

– If, for example, you want to change the acc. assignment category: Note that you MUST first delete all existing acc. assignment data for the relevant item. You can do this by initializing (deleting) the acc. assignment category and confirming by choosing ENTER. Following this, you can enter the new acc. assignment category and the relevant acc. assignment data.

– If you want to change acc. assignment data for the relevant item: For example, you want to change the main acc. assignment objects such as cost center, G/L account, sales order, network, or WBS ele ment, and so on. Here also, we recommend deleting all existing acc. assignment data by initializing (deleting) the account assignme nt category and confirming by choosing ENTER.If you are working with contracts, you must delete the acc. assignment line on the acc. assignment screen and enter a new line t o ensure that the data is derived correctly again. You MUST NOT change the current settings. For example, in some circumstances, the requirements type (OVZH) or the valuation of the requirements class (OVZG) is changed after th e purchasing document is created. This can cause errors in a valuation of goods movements (goods receipt, for example) and MUST BE AVOIDED.
