    This is more of ALE related. see below notes from SAP


    Cross-system company codes are used in the distribution in financial accounting. There is exactly one central system for each cross-system company code in the distributed environment. One company code has to be assigned to this cross-system company code on each system involved in the distribution.

    When sending an IDoc with company code-dependent data, the company code is replaced with the cross-system company code in all company code fields. When receiving this kind of IDoc the reverse conversion takes place on the target system.

    In this section you maintain the cross-system company codes and allocate them to the local company codes.


    The use of cross-system company codes and business areas in distributed financial accounting is a provisional measure. SAP reserves the right to replace this in a future release with a tool that allows a conversion for all the organizational units of the SAP system.

    Therefore SAP recommends that you choose consistent identifiers for the company code and the cross-system company code.


    1. Create a cross-system company code.

    2. Assign the cross-system company code to a chart of accounts to which it is also assigned on the central system.

    This setting is needed on the decentral systems in order to determine the chart of accounts of the company code on the central system.

    3. Assign cross-system company codes to the local company codes.

    Specify the identifiers of the relevant cross-system company codes for each of the individual company codes.
