    For the above issue, the gl account needs to be assigned to the correct item category as you have already mentioned in your note. The reasons why the  posting might have happened till now:

    1. There is a default profit centre which might have been assigned to the GL Account in question. It can be in FAGL3KEH or through a substitution rule in GGB0

    2. You have an invoice which has multiple profit centers while previously you might have posted an invoice in which there is only one profit center

    3. Either the GL Account or posting key field status has profit center hidden.

    4. You have been using a different document type earlier than what you have shown in the screen shot

    5, There is a change in the document splitting configuration, where the inheritance tick might have been removed in document splitting configuration.

    You can also check the simulation for document splitting for already posted document in T Code FAGL_MIG_SIM_SPL. This will check the posted document for document splitting based on your existing configuration and provide you insight why a similar kind of posted document is not working for document splitting now if there has been a change of document splitting configuration

    Hi Hidyath,

    The document splitting rules are based on the item categories that are assigned to the accounts. You define which item categories the system splits and from which item categories the system derives the account assignments for the document splitting characteristics defined. The item categories valid for a business transaction are defined by the business transaction variant assigned.

    Please, make sure if this account is assigned to item category 0200.
