FI Subsitution OBBH for GL acccount or amounts via user exit


For the FI document generated from a GR receipt from PO, I was wondering if it was possible, through the user exit "step" option (through subsitution process OBBH) to replace the GL account to a default account (defined in exit) OR change the price ( again, defined in exit) based on the Purchase Order document type for the receipt? I know those fields come "excluded" in GB01 but it can be maintained to be included.

    Hi James

    GL account can be replaced for sure.. I am not sure about the amounts...

    Note that system will ensure that MM and FI have the same amounts.. You cant have a different amount in MM and FI

      Hi James

      I am not sure if changing GL is a good idea even though it may techincally allow you. Changing price is even worse.

      If you are trying to change the GL which are used for material valuations, it will create havoc for finance team to reconcile FI-MM Balances (MB5L etc).

      Except material, if you are trying to change GL for other costs items (Delivery etc), then I would suggest to work with MM Guys to check if you can have different pricing procedures for this specific Purchase order type. Then you can, based on different Account key (mapped to GL in OBYC) linked to appropriate condition type, can post values to a default desired GL.

      Hope it helps
