Business Area and Profit Center In Document Splitting

Hi,

We are using Business area and Profit Center characteristics for document splitting.

In one transaction, the Business area and profit centers are defaulted through the cost center.

The document is successfully split in respect of the Profit Center, but the Business area is not filled, thereby giving error while posting.

However when i removed Profit Center from document splitting then Business area is updating for tax GL account as well But after adding Profit Center under document splitting then Business area is not updating for Tax GL account.

Please suggest.

    Hi Rajan,,

    Is Business Area Mandatory in Doc splitting ?

    Is Business Area characteristic activated for Zero Balance ?

    From the pictures, in the splitting rule 0300-0001, Tax Account does not inherit from GL acocunt (this is standard ) so you have one position empty for BA.

    • Hi Rajan,

      If Business Area is mandatory, then posting without BA should give error. The system should derive BA from some object (Cost Center, OBBH substitution, OKB9, etc) or manual input.

      You could set default BA at

      Said that, if you are in a productive system you will need NewGL Migration - Scenario 6, as all data actually in PRD will not convert to new NewGL Scenario (Profit Center + Business Area)
