    it is the Number uniquely defining the account assignment of a purchase order item.

    You can give '01' value to it.

      For a particular PO item, you can access the history by taking the PO number and its Item number. In the same way you get the Account assignment related details for the PO & items.

      If your prog is using PO Number , item to relate between EKKN and EKBE - its OK. But considering the Internal counter field to match them is not very clear to me. Theoritically speaking, you should not be doing this.

      if you view the contents of EKKN , you will find the most probable value of EKKN-ZEKKN is 01, whereas EKBE may contain several line items. So your prog will pick up the first line of the PO history all the times if any data exist for the account assignment otherwise it will not pickup anything.

      Does that match your program's functionality / requirement ?? if the answer is NO then the selection is NOT RIGHT.

    Each position of purchasing document can be supplied with more than one acount assignment, say you buy one printer for two departments, and so the costs should be distributed between two cost centers. Thus you assign two cost centers to one PO item and so you need one more field for a table key to store such assignments, and ZEKKN is that field - just a sequantial number of all assignments for one item.
