Unable to reverse FI Document (SA Document Type) posted to Asset G/L Accounts

I have a situation whereby an end user has posted a journal document type SA to debit the one asset account and credit the other asset account. This should not have been done and I need to reverse this journal entry.

However, when I try to reverse this document using transaction FB08, I get an error " Account 2000 in company code 1000 cannot be directly posted to". Account 2000 has an Account Group -"AS Fixed Assets Account".

I am not sure how the system allowed them to post the journal in the first place. Is there another way to reverse this journal document or would I have to perform another journal document to cancel out the original journal document?

    Hi,

    Nevermind, I was able to find a solution to the issue.

    In transaction OAMK, you can change the Recon Account for Account Type from Assets to "Blank", then I could reverse the journals that were incorrectly posted and then just changed it back again.

    Hi,

    I think you were posted it with t.code ABF1. You can also check the.t.code is used for posting in the doc. header of the document. However, if you are unable to reverse the entry, then post reversal entry by ABF1.

    Hi,

    According to the document header it was posted with FB50. I looked at the change history records for the G/L Accounts and there were no changes made to it which could have given me an indication of what they did to allow them to post this journal document. These accounts are of recon. acct type A-Assets. I then tried to also do a direct journal posting using transaction FB50, and the system gave me the exact same error as when I tried to reverse the journal. So I am just completely baffled as to how the system allowed them to post it in the first place or was it done with an alternative transaction.
