Field Business Area is a required field for GL account - urgent

Hi all,

we had created a new plant 3800. During configurations , business users created material for 3800 on 3000 and started purchase. Now after configurations, those materials had to be extended on plant 3800. Material have been extended but when the stock is transfered from 3000 to 3800 via MB1B , system says "

Field Business Area is a required field for GL account ICI 2201001".

Any idea that why this error comes? I have checked every thing, cudnt sought out.

Kindly help.

Regards,

    Hi

    When you are transferring the material from one plant to other plant using mvt type 301 or 303/305 etc.,

    there is a field selection variation between the mvt type and G/L account which was triggered for this Transaction.For mvt type 301, the filed Business area is not mandatory and for G/L account 2201001 the feild is mandatory.

    You can resolve this by changing one of the field selection group, i.e. either MVt type or G/L account.to do this follow the procedure.

    1.Go to SE38

    2.Type program RM07CUFA

    3.Execute the program

    4.It will ask for Mvt type nad G/L account number, give the details and execute

    5.System will display the difference between the two filed selection groups.

    6.From the same screen , you can change the fileds option by selecting the error log.
