FPMA Run - Error message Posting to General ledger account without tax code not permitted


Hi Friends,

With FPMA lauf the following error message has occured "

Posting to general ledger account 496320 D879 without tax code not permitted

Message no. >0014


The G/L account defined in Customizing for cash discount postings only permits postings with tax codes. In this particular case, cash discount was granted for an open item that does not have a tax code. Since there is no tax code for the open item, there is also no tax code for posting the cash discount.

System Response

The clearing document is not posted.

Procedure for System Administration

1. If you want to use the G/L account for postings to which no tax applies, select the indicator posting without tax allowed in the G/L account master record. Goto activity

2. If the system determined the wrong account, change the account determination in Customizing.

Choose Maintain entries.


But how to find that single item which was posted without a tax code ? In DFKKOP to hit the database where there are million records, is it advisable or any other ideas??

Regards and Thanks in advance !
