how to define commitment item as a document splitting characteristic

Dear Guru,

I try to use function document splitting of New-gl in IDES system company code 1000

at the time i activate the document splitting in IMG , sap thrown an error message below.

could someone please tell me the prerequisite steps to do.

please note that , i also try to create a scenario for commitment item . but it's look like we can't define our own scenario for creating the characteristic.

anyway else? please kindly suggest

Thank you in advance


below is the help for an error

Funds Management is active for company code &V1. Since Funds Management is updated on the basis of document splitting information, the commitment item must be defined as a document splitting characteristic in General Ledger Accounting.


Choose one of the following options:

  • Deactivate document splitting for the company code. For this, note the
    restrictions that apply to cross-company code transactions.

    thank you all for the answer

    i google and found the solution for this.

    it's look like . system doesn't allow to activate the company code directly in the img path. so it's thrown out an error

    so i decide to do it via sm30 without any changes in the commitment item area

    table V_FAGL_SPLIT_ACT

    and then active the company code , you would like to use document splitting and then save

    Thank you

    If you're trying to assign the profit center field and the FM is active with PSGLFLEXT, you won't be able to do it because, SAP understands the Public Sector don't used profit center.

    If your client isn't Public Sector, you can active FM, but before this, what you should have to do is enabled Document Splitting for all companies code.

    Check the note: 891144 - New GL - Document splitting - Risks with subsequent changes. Maybe this can help you.
