Askbn on line


I am working with the following NGL scenario

01-IFRS Area- Ledger 0L- posting indicator 1

02-Local Area - Ledger N1- Posting indicator 3

03-Delta área (02-01)- Ledger N1- posting indicadtor 6

I thought the differences between 02 and 01 (retirament, acquisition, etc) were posted by ASKBN. I am seeing that they are posting on line, and the document save the TCODE "ASKBND".

Any knows in which cases they are posting on line and in which case is necessary to run the ASKBN?

    Hi Cecilia,

    If you choose a posting indicator that posts APC without the addition "Directly" (2 or 5), then all APC values in that area will be transfered to GL by ASKBN.

    When you choose the "direct" posting, there is some kind of ASKBN posting triggered instantly after values are posted to that area (it's not really online, but happens very shortly after the online posting). The documents created by that direct posting will have TCODE ASKBND in the header.

    However, it's always possible that a direct posting fails for some reason (posting period closed, failed validation, missing account assignments...). In that case the user won't get an error message. Instead, when running ASKBN next time, it will process also the direct postings that failed previously.

    So ASKBN will post all values when using posting indicator 2 or 5. In case of 4 or 6 it will only process the direct postings that failed. Due to the risk of failed direct postings, it is always recommended to run ASKBN on a regular basis, no matter whether you post APC values periodically or directly.

    Best regards, Michael
