Dear SAP Gurus/ Experts,


1. We have using new GL functionalities with Document Splitting.

2. We also have a GL defined for 'Zero Balance Posting'. Entries are posted to this GL whenever there is a Cross- Profit Center clearing.

3. We use only respective Division's Profit Centers while posting Invoices, Incentives, Credit Notes, Debit notes.

4. Payments when received for more than 1 Division are posted to shared Profit Center.

However during clearing (F-32) or during 'Payment with Clearing' (F-28) when multiple Profit Centers are used, there are 2 outcomes in postings:

A. Profit Center posting for Receivable GL (customer recon) is balanced with same Profit Center. This we understand is due to Inheritance/ Document Splitting Rule.

B. Profit Center posting for Receivable GL (Customer recon) is balanced through posting to 'Zero Balance Posting'.


Due to A and B outcomes, we sometimes have Receivable Balances in Shared Profit Centers. This should not happen as no invoices/ credit notes/ or any other postings are done in Receivables GL with shared's Profit Centers (only incoming payments).


1. How we can ensure that all entries either follow outcome A only or outcome B only.

2. If not, how can be transfer Balance in shared Profit Center to Division's Profit Center.
