Multiple account assignment in service entry sheet (ML81N)

Hi all,

Is there any difference (other than the number of service entry sheet lines) if I create one service line in ML81N using the multiple account assignment screen with 2 different order numbers or 2 SES lines with single account assignment? There is a difference when purchasing materials but I am not sure about services since you accept (post) the entire service entry sheet and not a line item.

Thanks!

    Hi Jeevan,

    Thank you for your prompt answer.

    I understand that I can adopt a single line from the PO and I can see the multiple account assignment in the subscreen.

    But letÂ’s assume that I am not adopting any services from the PO, I am just creating unplanned services in ML81N. Is there any difference if I create one service line with multiple account assignments or multiple lines with single account assignment? In both scenarios the qty and price add up to the same value.

    Thanks!

      Hello Adriana,

      If you created an unplanned service PO, did you designate an account assignment on the PO or did you mark with an unknown account assignment? The other question I would have is whether you marked your PO as service based invoice verification? The answer to these questions may help me provide a more accurate response.

      From my perspective, the process within the service entry sheet would not matter if you do the one line item versus the two line items. Ultimately the question would be how the AP processor would see the information when they process the invoice through MIRO (e.g. will they see one line or two). If you are not using service based invoice verification, then the two options you should provide the same result (e.g. one line item on the MIRO screen).

      Hope this helps.

    Adopt the single line item , like direct materials and in the subscreen you can find the Multiple AAC screen too.

    Thanks

    Hello Gus,

    We use account assignment category "U" (unknown) in the PO and we do not mark our POs as service based invoice verification.

    I think you are right, in this case it would not matter and AP would still see one line item in MIRO. The only difference would be in the multiple account assignment screen in MIRO.

    Thanks for your reply.
