    1. The following is the process for Automatic Account determination in MM

    Material type is assigned to A/c Cat Ref

    A/c Cat. Ref is assigned to Val. Class

    Val. class assigned to G/L A/c.

    Configuration :

    OMWM : Activate Val. grouping Code

    OMSK : Create A/c cat. ref and Val. Class; then A/c cat ref

    assigned to material type.

    OMWD : Val. area (plant) assigned to Val. grp. code (0001)

    OBYC : Assign Val. modifier (0001), New Val. Class and G/L


    create new material and assign new val. class in

    accounting 1 data screen. Then create PO, GR.

    2. account assignment category

    Key indicating whether an item is to be assigned to an auxiliary account (such as a cost center).

    The account assignment category determines which account assignment data (e.g. cost center, account number, etc.) is required for the item.

    We define Sample account at OB15 and the path is SAP Ref:

    IMG\Financial Accounting\GLAccounting\GLAccounts\MasterRecords\Preparations\Additional Activities\Sample Accounts

    Step1: Maintain List of Rules types

    In this step you just create a code for your Sample Account

    Create a New Entry

    XXXX Sample account for Pleasecontact1 then save

    Step 2: Define Data Tranfer Rules FSK2

    In this step you define the data tranfer rule i.e., whether it can be editable or only display etc after a Master recored is created with Sample Account.

    Selects the fields that you want to transfer (check boxes)and can be changed and can't be changed etc., then save.

    Step 3: Assign Company Code to Rule Type

    In this step you will assign your sample account to your company code.

    Just select your company and select your Sample account and assing then save.

    Step 4: Create Sample Account. FSM1

    Now create Sample Account same as you create at FS00, then Save.

    Now Sample account is created. Now you can find Sample account field in FS00 (if you assign it company code it won't be displayed) enter Sample account no, and press enter all the fiels that you have selected in Step 2 will be copied (transferred) accrding the the rule (checkboxes) you have selected there.

    At Tcode FS00

    At FS00 you can see/Edit/Create a GL Master Record which is maintained by the Company Code. Where as Sample Account is not GL Master Record but it is a set of settings/rules which are easily available to create a GL Master Record (understand this point clearly) This sample account does not hold your transaction data nor you can edit or view at FS00.

    To use your Sample Account:

    1. Go to FS00, give a GL account no (other than Sample account no ofcourse). Select create

    2. Then check all fields, whether any field is filled like Currency, Open Item Management, etc for your confirmation (obviously every field is empty)

    3. Now enter Sample Account no in Sample Account field and give Account Group. press Enter. U will get a message that "Data from changed Sample account was accepted", check data.

    4. Now chek all fields again. Now u will find some fields filled with values which you have defined in Data Transfer Rules while creating Sample Account
