    You should have posted this in the FI/CO forum as this is not related to MM at all.

    Create 2 special GL indicators (say E - EMD and S - Security deposit)

    During bid process (F-02)

    Vendor account - posting key 39 E - Debit

    Cash in transit - posting key 40 - Credit

    Returning the EMD (F-02)

    Vendor account - posting key 29 E - Credit

    Cash in transit outgoing - posting key 50 - Debit

    Converting EMD to Security:(F-02)

    Vendor account - posting key 29 E - Credit

    Vendor account - posting key 39 S - Debit.
