Account assignment question (for subcontracting item category)

Hello

Is it possible to have a account assignment category with a consumption posting indicator V work with a subcontracting item category L?

Our scenario is that a SD item category TAB auto generates a Subcontracting PO with account assignment M and item category L.

The problem with account assignment M is that it references sales order, and does not propose BOM component material/quantity, like a standalone subcontracting movement (541 reference to PO)

We want to issue components to the subcontractor referencing a PO, and maintain visibility thru ME2O (Which account assignment M wont allow).

Is this possible ?

I tried tweaking the account assignment category M by changing the consumption posting indicator to V.

This allowed me to do the subcontracting issue 541 movement referencing a PO.

However, I got 2 accounting errors at MIGO.

No direct postings possible to G/L account 03-010

I then changed the FS00 settings to allow direct postings, but got the next error and was stuck. I guess if these accounts are postable, my problem is solved but I don’t know how to do that!

Acct. 03-010 for trans./event key BSX, postable directly

If anyone is knowledgeable on account assignments or knows how I can solve these, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Regards

Ken

    Hi Ken,

    You detailed the problem very well but finally when you tried to express the exact current error what you have, it was not clear...

    Is "Acct. 03-010 for trans./event key BSX, postable directly"

    your current error?

    If so, I think, what it is saying is:

    BSX is a stock posting event key. For a stock posting, in which SAP automatically determines G/L account, it won't allow the G/L account postable directly i.e. manually.

    This again is a control within the G/L account...

    Go to FS02 and in create/ bank/interest, select the check box Postable Automatically only. Try posting again.

    Regards

    • Thanks for replying again, Gopala.

      Let me clarify, the SAP error I am receiving is at MIGO, following the successful transfer posting at MB1B (mtype 541 referencing the PO number. If I can get the proper account postings at MIGO (as in a standalone MM subcon scenario) here, my problem is resolved.

      When I hit post at MIGO (Finished Product mov type +101/Component reduction is -543 O) I receive the error "Acct. 03-010 for trans./event key BSX, postable directly " I then goto FS00 (G/L accounts) and uncheck the 'post automatically only' box. But then when I goto re-post at MIGO, I get the message

      "No direct postings possible to G/L account 03-010"

      So I am stuck in this circular error.

      Is this correctable?

      Thanks Again

      Ken
