Change of 'Totals table' for a Ledger.

1. We are planning to do a prototype scenario on new GL by using SAP standard totals table FAGLFLEXT

2. The same client will be used for final development by using custom developed totals table ex... ZZABCT

Question: Is it possible to change the 'Totals table' for the Ledger while doing final development?

Thanks in advance for help

    Hi

    I agree with the earlier views. Just to add few more

    New GL is not a replacement FI SL. If u notice under New GL u will still see FI SL functionality. FI SL has some unique features which has not been incorprated under New GL. With the introduction of non leading ledgers to a limited extent New GL offers parallel accounting without the cumbersome process of going through FI SL configuration.

    Hi,

    ZZABCT seems to be a Special Ledger summary table, while FAGLFLEXT is obviously the new totals table for the (new) General Ledger, replacing the good old GLT0.

    Although newGL and FI-SL have something common in their concepts, there are enormous differences. You cannot do something in NewGL for prototyping and realize the same in FI-SL later, neither the opposite will work. NewGL and FI-SL may be run in parallel (for sure not a very common approach), for instance, if you have been used FI-SL and you do not want to give up your database not even after having migrated to newGL. But you cannot just switch between newGL and FI-SL.

    Perhaps I did not understand your exact requirement, but changing the totals table (ZZABCT) is not possible unless you delete and recreate the whole SL environment (table group) again.

    Hope that helps, points welcome 😊
