Document Splitting characteristics to be marked Mandatory in Running System

Dear Friends,

My Client is a Handset Manufacturer in India and has gone live with SAP for more than 7 years.

The problem is that they have document splitting active in the system but none of the characteristics have been marked as mandatory in "Define Document Splitting Characteristics for General Ledger Accounting" setting".

This is creating a lot of entries where the profit center has not been filled in the FI line items

My Business wants the books at plant level i.e. they need the trial balance at the level of the Plant Profit Centers.

Please guide me with the strategy and process to be followed for analyzing the line items posted without profit center (Any Standard T-code Provided by SAP).

Do we need to go for a migration project for the same.

I know this is huge question in itself but some of you might have faced similar situation in the past.

    Hi Sapan,

    To get the line item posted without profit center, you can run report FAGLL03 or check table FAGLFLEXT. Those line item with empty profit center are posted without PCA document splitting.

    My recommendation is you use this report FAGLL03 to get all those historical document posted without PCA. Based on this data to create the required report Outside the system. Fixed the configuration with PCA is mandatory in new period.

    For yearly report, just combine the manual and sap report.Of course u can go for migration project but not cost efficient.

      Dear KK LAM,

      Thanks a lot for your reply.

      I will try follow the steps recommended by you, but my worry is that if anyone tries to work on old data (reversal or clearing), system will look for Profit center and will display error as the PC is not in the historic data.

    Hi Sapan,

    You can simulate your concern in Quality Server before you propose this solution to the business. If it hit error for missing PCA. You can try to configure FAGL3KEH or substitution rule for reversal and clearing tcode for historical data. Most company not allow to adjust historical data because it will have audit issue.
