    Dear Shiva,

    Document Splitting:

    An automatic procedure for organizing line items in the document according to selected dimensions (such as organizing receivable lines by profit center). Moreover, you can effect a zero balance setting for selected dimensions (such as profit center or segment). The zero balance setting causes additional clearing lines to be generated on clearing accounts in the document after the document has been created.

    For example, the document splitting procedure is necessary for drawing up financial statements for the selected dimensions.

    Document Split Account:

    A special account that must be created in financial accounting for posting payroll results to accounting. The partial totals for all documents in a posting run are posted to this account.

    Document Splitting Characteristics:

    Account assignment object for which document splitting can be performed.

    This characteristic generally corresponds to a field in the data structure of the general ledger.

    Examples of document splitting characteristics:

    Profit center


    Business area

    Customer field

    Other characteristics (characteristics that are relevant for application components that receive documents from General Ledger Accounting, such as Controlling).
