No direct GL posting can be done in GL account

Hi

I am creating a purchase order with sale order reference.

The sale order item is HALB.

a. When I am creating as a regular sales order (in my case) with item category as TAN, the system is creating the purchase order.

b. When I am creating for a sales order, which is defined for job work, which has anther item category as JTAN, the system is throwing up the following error.

"No direct postings can be made to GL A/c 4006240 in Company Code 1000".

Can you please tell me where / what settings needs to be done to overcome this error.

Best regards

R.Srinivas

    Hi,

    The problem will be one of two things.

    either the auto account table is pointing to the wrong GL or the GL has not been set up correctly.

    If this is in a live SAP system then you need to get your finance team to confirm if this is the correct account to use for this type of posting. If it is correct then they need to change the setting to allow direct postings (an easy flag change on the GL)

      Hi,

      I am afraid that we don't have a JTAN in our system and so I cannot compare the settings. But the item category determines if the items are to be sold from stock or via a third party order etc. It could be that this item is not classed as being stock (it could be a service etc.) and so the posting would be direct from a GL rather than via a stock movement.

      This MAY explain it.

    The item category type was set to value rather than standard.

    The results have been achieved using purchasing with account assignment category M.
