Creation of Customer

Hi Guys,

While creating a customer I am not able to specify the reconciliation account, system isn't allowing me to enter any input in FD01 - company code data screen but when I double click its taking me to the G/L account screen of AR. I have also specified reconciliation account as mandatory field in my accounts group for Customers.

I tried to post the invoice after creating the customer without specifying the reconciliation account but it gave me error saying that G/L account is not defined in the my Chart of accounts.

Can some one let me know if I am missing anything in my configuration.

Thanks

    Hi,

    Please check if the GL account

    a. exists in the COA

    b. has been extended to Company Code

    c. is defined as Customer Reconciliation Account

    Also, try going to FD02 - Change Mode and enter the recon account and save it. See if it works.

    Rgds.

    Check the field status selection, which you have assigned to your company code for creation of customer master. Path for the same is spro - financial accounting - Account Receivable & accounts payable - Customer master - Preparation for creating customer master data - define screen layout per company code (customer) or Define screen layout per activity.

    Here you might have specified reconciliation account as suppress or display only.

    Hi,

    please follow the following steps.........

    1. first create Recon G/L a/c for the customer in FS00 enter Account type D in the reconciliation a/c type field, i guess u might be knowing what all are the necessary steps to create a Recon G/L a/c.

    2. create customer a/c group with Tcode OBD2 & make reconciliation account filed required. create number range here XDN1 n assigned to Customer group OBAR.

    3. create Customer master record with FD01 r XD01, in company code data tab u try to give recon G/L a/c now.

    if you find this helpful please assigned me points.

    Regards,

    Hello everyone,

    Thanks for suggesting so many solutions. Actually some one has changed the Reconciliation account as display in IMG->FA->AR&AP->Customer Accounts->Master Data->Define Screen layout per activity(customers)->Create Customer(centrally). I had to change it to optional and then I was able to select the recon account while creating customer. I got this help from my instructor.
