Multiple G/L account for Purchase account (Transaction key EIN in OBYC)

Dear All,

Our client is in Retail business.

We have a requirement to assign different G/L accounts for purchase account (EIN) while doing Goods receipt and MIRO for article having same valuation class. Client denied to change article type and valuation class. In OBYC, EIN is linked to valuation class, there is no account modifier available as per my knowledge.

This is an urgent requirement, kindly help with your expert opinions.

Thanks & Regards,

    Why you want assign different G/L accounts to EIN in OBYC?

    If there is a requirement - based on plant(valuation area), You can assign different valuation modifier to plants and later assign different G/L accounts with EIN with valuation modifier in OBYC.

    T.code: OMWD

    Valuation Modifier----Plant



    T.code: OBYC

    Valuation Modifier--------EIN key--------G/L account

    Hello experts,

    Client has 150 stores at pan India level, stores (sites/ plant) are valuation area in this case. We have defined one valuation grouping code which is linked to all valuation area. We cannot have different VGC as all articles are sold at all stores and treated same.

    We have different GL account assignment based on valuation class of articles.

    But now client has requirement to hit two different purchase G/L for articles having same valuation class.(Client not ready to have new valuation class for those set of articles).

    We are able to hit two GI GR clearing account (WRX) using function module MR_ACCOUNT_ASSIGNMENT. But unable to find how to hit two G/L for purchase account(EIN).

    Kindly help.

    Thanks in adv.

    As you already told, new valuation class is the best practice. You may try to convince the client - otherwise you need to go for enhancement, which may lead to serious accounting impact if there is any mistake!!
