Error message in GR

Dear all,

I have created a vendor PO and post goods reciept, then the system pop up the following message:

Field Bus. Area is a required field for G/L account CPMO 14010010

Message no. F5808


The value for field "Bus. Area" in the interface to Financial Accounting is an initial value but you are required

to make an entry in the field selection for G/L account "14010010" in company code "CPMO" linked to the field selection

for posting key "89".

System Response



It might be an error in the configuration of the G/L account field selection. The initial application, used to call

up the interface must otherwise define a value for field "Bus. Area". If this is the case, contact the consultant

responsible for the application used to call up the interface or get in contact with SAP directly.

How do I check the error in system configuration setting? Pls give me advice, thanks

    Hi Chris,

    I am giving solution for your problem step by step

    First of all execute T code FS00 enter you said GL code number then in Creat/Bant/Interest tab you note down whats the field status group.

    Then Go in

    IMG--> Financial Accounting --> General Ledger Accounting --> Business Transaction --> G/L Account Postings --> Carry Out and check document settings --> Maintain Field Status Variant

    There you select 0001 and click on Field Status Groups

    and a long list will appear. In this list you can find your field status group you noted down from GL code. Double click on your field status group

    A one more new window will appear there you find option Additional account assignements in blue colour again double click on that which leads you to a new window

    there in additional account assignment you will find business area make it optional entry and save it then come out. Your problem will be solved.
