Exclude posted items in FAGLB03


When we use transaction FAGLB03 (G/L Account Balance Display), we have some GL accounts that have lots of items.

The selection we make is this:

We execute this request, the next screen is shown:

On the screen we double click the amount at period 8 (yellow field). This pop up is shown:

We select Yes, because we only want to see open items.

On the result screen, which takes a long time to show, we see open items (red icon), but also posted items (green icon):

The lines with a green icon are posted, the are automatically cleared by the system, balance 0.

The manually cleared items are not showed.

How can we prevent to show the posted items? We selected the open items only here!?

Is it possible that those posted items causes the long wait time?

      In report FAGLL03 change the layout where you can sort your line item by RED i.e. OIM and set this as default layout to this account so next onwards whenever you will run this report it will show you open item only.

      Second way is create new GL on OIM basis and transfer all your entries to this account and cleared all transaction from old GL account. so it will aslo reflect in your financial stament (if it is balance sheet account).

      In case of clarification, please let me know.

    You are checking the GL balances in two different systems. If your GL has maintained with OIM, then the below 2 symbols displays for cleared and open items.

    If you GL account is non OIM,then it displays the items with tick mark in green color as you attached in the last screenshot. So check once again the report, it displays only open items in FAGLB03.

    • Hello Siwar,

      Thanks for your reply.

      I agree, probably that is the reason.

      I was hoping there is a solution available, so the posted items are no longer be showed there.

      Would be great.

    If this account has a flag to display items, why don't you use the FAGLL03 just for open items?
