Tolerance for G/L account open item postings

Hi SAP experts,

We thought all along that tolerance limit set in t-code OBA4 applies to all kinds of postings, whether open item posting of customer (KOART = D), vendor (K) or G/L account (S). It turns out that when F1 help is selected for field "Amount per open item account item", it says "..per customer or vendor item".

With this, may we know

1. if there is a separate transaction to set tolerance limits for G/L account open item postings (not for G/L account clearing transactions).

2. if there is none, if you would explain the possible rationale for this.

Hope to hear from you soon.

    I believe, the logic behind this is that the system allows you to restrict business transactions with potential cash operation (payment). Restricting posting on a G/L account doesn't make much sense. Especially, considering the fact that G/L nature could be various and setting up one limit for all G/Ls won't make much sense either.

    You are given, though, a possibility to restrict the amount for the entire document.



    P.S. Of course, you can set this limit on G/L level by some other mean; for example, by creating a validation in OB28.
