GL account posting - GL account type determination


I am trying to post a GL account entry using an Incoming Idoc into an S4/HANA system from an ECC system. This is processed inbound using message type GLMAST. I see that the Idoc was successfully posted.

When I check the document that was generated, I saw that there is a field GL-Account type (chart of accounts ) that is determined automatically by the system.

Note: The source ECC system does not contain this field, and neither did the idoc. But Target S4/HANA system has defaulted this field to ( (N)- Non Operating expense or Income)

Can someone please help explain how the GL account type was determined in the target system?

    Look at master data of target system (SAP Menu path: Accounting, Financial Accounting, General Ledger, Master Records, G/L Accounts, Individual Processing) in tab 'Type/Descr.' block 'Control in chart of accounts'.
