    hi,

    Check the field status group assigned to the relevant GL account and check whether business area is suprresed? If it is supress make it optional.

    all the tbest

    hi govindaraj,

    the system does not really care about your field status settings in case of business areas. What really matters is, if the business area balance sheet is turned on or not. On the other and in case of bank, tax and probably some other accounts the business area is not filled by the system automatically. What you can do is to create a substitution exit and develop a proper program, that fills the business area in such cases.

    hope this helps

    Hi

    i had faced a similar problem a few days back with one of our customers and it took a lot of time to find a resolution to it.

    By Default, SAP will not show business area in the report FBL3N for the tax account in the entry view. however, if you see the transaction in GL view, you will see that the business area is captured even in tax accounts. This is a more cumbersome process.

    Pls use the report FAGLL03 for the particular tax account. Please note that you will have to display the hidden Business Area through change layout screen (ctrl+F8) when you have got the output. You can then filter down the data on a particular field. Pls note that this report will be avialable on SAP ECC 6.0 and is not avilable on the lower versions.

    If this solves your problem, please assign the highest possible points.

    Regards

    Sanil Bhandari

      hai Sanil,

      if my requirements is fulfilled then i am always assign highest points only. Now the business area problem not in report it is in entry level i.e if SD people process the invoice document, the system is asking to enter business area for the sales tax ledger. Sales tax ledger is internally system will generate based on the tax condition type. so system is not allowing to save the document without entering the business area field in tax GL.

      now tell me how can we solve this issue.

      govind.

    Hello All,

    I am also facing the same issue regarding the business area not being updated in the tax line item.

    However, I have checked, that for some documents it is getting updated. For some documents it is not.

    Can anyone please help? what could be the possible reasons?

    I have also checked the OBY6 settings. Business area Fin stat. is activated.

    Kindly provide any solutions..!!!

    Regards,

    Priyanka.
