How does SAP populates COEP-GKONT field?


I dont know if this is the right firum/section that I entered, but I have a problem.

How does SAP populates the COEP-GKONT.

This is an offset account that (someone) SAP decides for a particular line item in a document, what the offset account is.

You can see the field using the KSB1 cost center line item report. For example in SI4 you can pull CC C100388888, period 01 and year 2007 and just execute.

Then you can pull this field into the display layout.

If you double-click on the line you get taken to an FI document.

Somehow SAP decides what the offset account should be. It looks like if the item you drilldown on is a debit, then SAP looks for a credit line item and populates the offset account value.

What I don’t understand is how SAP chooses this if there are multiple credits. I don’t know if it just takes the first one or what.
