    Hi,

    To resolve the error, you can analyse account determinatio in the billing document. Process:

    Goto T.Code: VF02 & Enter Invoice number

    Next (On the top most strip) goto Environment

    Next (Select Environment) go to Account determination

    Next (In Account Determination) select Revenue Account Determination (first option)

    This will list all the condition types in the Billing document & analyse each condition & check for which G/L accounts is not determined.

    Possible errors:

    1. VKOA not maintained for required combination

    Solution: Maintain the combination in VKOA.

    2. Account Assignment of Customer / material not maintained in Customer / Material Master (If maintained in combination in VKOA).

    Solution:

    Option 1 (Standard solution):

    step 1: Cancel Billing Document --> Reverse PGI --> cancel Delivery --> Cancel Sales Order

    step 2: Maintain Customer master / Material Master correctly.

    step 3: Recreate sales Order --> Delivery --> PGI --> Invoicing.

    Option 2:

    Force the Account Assgnment Group of Customer / Material through Debug in change mode of Billing document, which will release Billing Document to Accounting.

    regards,

      Hi Gaurav,

      From FI Side, you require to check that all the G/L account has been maintained through T.Code: FS00. G/L account being Master data has to be created in each client ot uploaded through LSMW / SCATT / BDC.

      In Billing Document in change mode (in the first screen where we enter Billing Document number), on the top most left hand corner, take a dropdown on Billing Document & select Release to accounting. Here you can get the undermentioned possible message:

      1. G/L account not found

      2. Cost Element not maintained for G/L account.

      In both the above cases, FI consultant requires to take corrective action.

      Regards,

      Rajesh Banka

    Hi Gaurav,

    To solve this issue. Go to VF01 and then go to Environment- Account Determination analysis - revenue Account determination. Then try to analyse for which condition type the G/l account is not assinged and then Do the assignment for the same in VKOA.

    reward if it helps

    Hi.

    I see that the error is with VKOA settings only. In the account detn analysis screen, please check against all condition types. Some times, you might have ensured for KOFI but there can be problem with KOFK. Please check in that direction. You can trace the problem

    Reward if it helps.

    Thanks & Regards,

    CLn

      Hi,

      I suspect that the Co-PA setting are not mentioned for this . Ok try out this analysis, In t-code KE4i,enter the operating concern which your company follows,speak to FI guys if you dont know the Operating concern and check the costingbased check box,inside that verify if all the conditon types in your billing document are having reference value field with tick option flagged for that condition type. if not you have to fill those conditions types.

      Please reward if this helps you.

    Hi Gaurav,

    have you resolved the problem?

    I get the same error message, when creating a Bonus credit memo.

    The stange thing is, that account determination shows the correct accounts, but somehow they are not considered.

    Thanks for your help.
