    Hi Maggi,

    You ask from FI for the transaction key & tell them your requirement they will configure G/L account for your new movement type.

    Regards

    Hi,

    While creating new movement type in OMJJ, you can define allowed transactions and the account modifier. For this account modifier, in OBYC under GBB you need to enter the GL. generally we copy the standard movement type which is similar to our requirement. simply chnage the account modifier and do the OBYC setting.

    SAP has provided a lot number of m.types and it serves practically in all senarios.

    You required to create a new movement type only if your need is not served with standard movement types .

    Any new movement type is created based on accounting requirements.

    example like Std SAP is having only one movement type for scraping. but in all industies, they want to post scrap to different accounts based on the scrap generation for further analysis. like scrap due to SLED, scrap due to power failure, due to process failure etc., you can track how much scrap is genearted due to what reason. this you cant get using std movment type.

    Hope this will help.

    Regards,

    Naveen.

      Thankyou for all your replies,

      now can you please tell me that how can i work with ac modifiers, i mean in my screen of movement type, when i am checking aoount grouping from the side bar, i am finding TE KEY like say PRD but next to it it is written PRU a/c modifier, i could not find out this modifier in OBYC. Will this be provided to me by FI consultant along with the transaction key. My basic purpose is the same as i want to put entry in different account (for a particular kind of scrap)

    Hi Maggi,

    Transaction key is driving GL account for movement type, you can see the Transaction key in to movement type(Transaction code OMJJ).

    In transaction code OBYC you can assign the GL account for Transaction key.

    Hope it will help you.

    In OBYC double click on PRD or GBB & then you can see the GL account defined for the combination of Valuation area, Account modifier & valuation class.

      yes Manish but still here i can see valuation modifier (which work for account group code), valuation class(which we put in material master) and then account, but i could not find out the modifiers as it is written there in OMJJ as PRU in fron of PRD. as per my undestanding PRU will help system to take up the right account number from the Tkey PRD.

      I apologize if i am giving you guyz some hard time to understand my problem

      thankyou

      hello Manish,

      i am trying to copy movement type 350 and after clicking on copy button when i am clicking on account grouping tab on the side bar, i am getting a number of combinations of this movement type with stock type, val string, TE key and account modifier. here among these combinations i have some combnations for TEkey PRD and account modifier PRU.

      May be PRU is a just specification as when i tried to change it to some other word it is allowing me but the thing is in my system whereevr PRD is here (in this combinaion list) it has PRU linked with it. so that is why i think it is to facilitate account determination. but i dont find any combination of TEkey and acount modifier with a/c number. In OBYC, we have the combination of TEkey with valuation modifier and valuation class with account number but nothing like account modifier.

      and thankyou very much Manish for your time and consideration
