New GL - Doc Splitting - Profit Center not hitting the Zero Balance GL


Dear SAP New GL Gurus,

I am trying to activate the doc splitting where the system uses a GL Account to ensure that Profit Center wise Trial Balances are tallied.

I have done the following configuration till now, and I feel that these steps should ideally split the doc and post the PCA Adjustment Account Entry - I think its the Zero Balance Clearing account that the system should ideally be using.

I am not sure what I am missing here - This is what is done till now:

1. Activated Document Splitting - Used Standard Method 0000000012.

2. Classified GL Accounts for Doc Splitting as per standard SAP categories.

3. Classify Doc Types with assignments of Transaction and Variant. Done as per standard, no changes made.

4. Defined Zero Balance Clearing Account.

5. Define Document Splitting Characteristics for General Ledger Accounting - Made Profit Center field as Mandatory

6. Define Document Splitting Characteristics for Controlling - Left it BLANK as Point No. 5 is done for GL Accounting.

7. Define Post-Capitalization of Cash Discount to Assets - Ignored

8. Edit Constants for Nonassigned Processes - Ignored

Under Real-Time Integration of Controlling with Financial Accounting:

1. Standard variant 0001 used.

2. Assigned 0001 variant on the Co Code.

3. Define Rules for Selecting CO Line Items - Ignored

4. Define Account Determination for Real-Time Integration - Ignored

Accouting Entry posted by me - Both lines are Balance Sheet items:

DR Bank GL Profit Center X

CR Bank GL Profit Center Y

Please help me out here.

I will assign full points.

Many Thanks
