Multiple account assignment with blank account assignment

Hello, I had searched the forum to find an answer for this but with no success.

Is it possible to do multiple account assignment when the account assignment category and item category in PO is blank? We use blank account assignment for valuated stock purchases. When I click on the multiple account assignment, nothing happens. There's no configuration setting for blank account assignment in OME9. I also looked at the 496082 - FAQ: Account assignment in purchasing and didn't see it in there.

Thank you

    If you are using account assignment category as blank, then account assignment tab will not be there in PO line item. So, you can't enter any account assignment details.

    The question is why do you want to enter account assignment for valuate stock purchase. Are you looking for multiple inventory accounts for a single purchase?

    blank accounting category means you purchase to fill up your warehouse stock, and this will use the automatic account determination to find its accounts.

    How can one even think of doing multiple account assignment for stock items?

    If you don't want the value go to your stock accounts then you have to use an account assignment category in your order.

    If you want stock but no value then you need to use UNBW material type, whose nature is to post quantity into the warehouse while the value goes to cost accounts, and hence it will force you to enter an account assignment category.

    This is a little bit different it's a EA-PS (Public Sector) so the users can enter account assignment (i.e. fund, fund center,etc) and they sometimes need to MAA to split the line to different funds, etc.

    There is actually an older OSS note which seems to explain that Funds Management uses only single account assignment:

    353135 - ME21N, ME51N, FM funds center funds reset
