Balance differences in FBL3N &FS10N for same G/L account

Hi all,

I am facing the problem in differences in balances for bothfs10n & fbl3n for same g/l account.This difference not for a single account total 9 accounts are there.what i observed was they started sap in 2000 for some g/l accounts i found balance in fs10n for all 12 periods in the year 2000 but there were no line items.in fbl3n also no balances for 2000 year.but they carry forwarded balance to 2001and so on up to 2007.

If i go for balances in fs10n and fbl3n as of 2007 the balance is different from fs10n.

In fs10n when i click on lineitem display in total balance colomn = all items for 01/01/2000 to 31/12/2007 balances in fbl3n.

when I click on line item in fs10n incumulatibalance colomn <>(is not equal to) all items for 01/01/2000 to 31/12/2007 balances in fbl3n.

Pls help me on this issue they were starting auditing for 2007 so they found the differences.

Thanks to all

Regards

chandra.

    Dear Chandra,

    Kindly check for inconsistencies, if any through the program SAPF190. This report will help you to know the status. If there are no inconsistencies, please look for the following :

    - "Open item management" or "Line item display" in the G/L

    master check boxes, if handled improperly, read the documentation of the report RFSEPA01.

    - If this is not the reason, another one could be the report SAPF011 which you might not have run for the respective G/L accounts.

    - If this does not help, please ensure if you have activated the New GL functionality. If so, you have to upgrade the Serive Patch levels through required SAP Notes.

    Hope this information helps.

    If all of the above does not help, I suppose, you can raise a ticket with SAP under inconsistencies component.

    Hi,

    It seems that when the accounts where initially created line item management was off, and this was subsequently activated.

    Hence for 2000 no line items where generated.

    You can use RFSEPA01 to generate the missing line items.

    Kind regards

    Hi,

    You can start carry forward transaction again for every year with F.16.

    You could check at the end of every year to detect in which year this difference appreared.

    Please also pay atention to selections in FBL3n.
