Different GL account for different vendors at time of PO creation

Hi all,

I have following situation... My client is ordering materials with account assignment. They are off course ordering the same material at different customers. Now, for some vendors they would like to post it to one GL account, for other vendors to another GL account. Since valuation classes in OBYC for GBB VBR can have only one GL account, I would like to know, if there is any option to include vendor in the whole account determination process?


- material with account assignment K and valuation class 7000, ordered at vendor 1 is posted to GL account 700000

- material with account assignment K and valuation class 7000, ordered at vendor 2 is posted to GL account 710000

Any ideas?

there is no customizing which would make vendor specific account determination for a material. It is in general unusual to use vendor numbers in customizing.

II think in your option there is no customizing like that. GBB VBR is Goods Issue what does it have to do with your PO Order?

If it is GR Posting with PO reference that you're talking about then:

In your Scenario i would suggest you talk to FICO and ABAP about developing a new table(Z) in this table, it can have these fields:

Plant, modification key, Valuation class, Vendor account, G/L account. For OBYC for material with class 700000 and 700001,...

you can maintain an unknown G/L account then when system can not find this account, tell your ABAPer to look for Developed table for your desired G/L accounts.

for example: table Z: Plant 1000, Modification VBR, valuation class 7000, vendor 12345, G/L account 700000.

I hope that my suggestion could help

VBR is not only used for goods issue. During posting of goods receipt of an account assigned purchase order (e.g. account assignment K), VBR can be used as per your customization.


Could you let me know how it works? isn't Cost Center and G/L account assigned directly in PO account assignment ?

Or you mean a PO enhancement to get out G/L account automatically?

The modification key is supposed to get out the expected G/L accounts in automatic posting?


This can be used to fetch G/L account automatically in purchase order, so that user doesn't have to enter G/L account manually for account assigned purchase order. More info


Thank you very much!

I see your the idea and it is a really nice blog.
