Combination between Item Categories and Account Assignment Categories

Hi all,

Today when I use some materials in a Purchase Requisition, SAP tells me that I must use an account assignement categorie, A or F.

I got some Material, which SAP num are 92***** (reproup in certain Item Categories). I want them to be automatically affect to the account assignement categorie F, which is already defined.

For the other materials, 90**** and 91***** (reproup in other Item Categories), I want them to be assign to the account assignement category K, already defined.

How can I do that ? The only thing I found in the customizing is <i>"Assign Default Values for Asset Class"</i>, but it just let me make the user put an account Assignement categories to some Item Categories, but I can not compel the user to put one specific account Assignement categories.

Someone has an idea ?

Thanks and regards.

    Hi Mathieu,

    You can create PR document types in IMG and limit Item Categories for the document types. Then you can set up certain allowed combinations of item categories and account assignment categories. This would restrict user input in a certain way.

    Let me know if this was helpful.

      It is difficult to map this requirement with standard SAP configurations.You need to go for some customization.Please check any userexit available for PR where you can build some logic to check materials entered in PR amd pass value to account assignemnt based on the material number.This is high level idea.just explore whether is it possible or not?
