GL account posting - GL account type determination

Hi,

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'.

Hi Raymond,

Thank you,

Yes I am able to see that in FS00 as well. But is there a way of knowing how the Account type was determined by the system given that the Idoc did not contain any information related to Account type? Is there a configuration for it?

It seems to me like the Account type is mandatory information if you try posting it manually using FS00. But I am not sure how it was determined when the idoc was processed.

(Don't use term as 'Posting' for master data, that misled me...)

Flags like XBILK came from segments E1SKA1C or E1SKA1M, look in your system with WE30 and WE31 ?
