    Hi,

    I guess you are talking about the Controlling Document. The G/L account (revenue) gets determined from the VKOA configuration you have done. The revenue G/L account is linked to a primary cost element (actually it is a revenue element - Cost Element category 11) and thats how it gets determined.

    Shrikant has answered it very correctly and precisely and this post is only to add a little more detail.

    When you create an Billing Doc, the Revenue is posted into SD using a Condition Type. This Conditon Type maps to an Account Key.

    Based on various factors like Sales Org, Customer Account Assignment Group, Material AAG, and the Account Key, the system determines the proper GL account to post the Revenue (as Shrikant rightly said, using T Code VKOA). You have various tables here, called the C tables. Each table has one of more of the above characteristics and depending on the level of detail, the system uses the appropriate table to determine the GL Account.

    In CO, this GL account is created as a Revenue Element (not a "Cost" Element). A Revenue Element is typically a Cost Element with Category 11. Similarly Sales Deductions are created as CEs with category 12.

    The postings in FI trigger postings into CO, Profit Centre, COPA, Consolidation and Material Ledger (depending on which of these are active). The SD Condition Type maps to a COPA Value Field. Therefore, after a billing document has been posted, you should, in theory, be able to reconcile your FI, CO and COPA accounts.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers.
