Message no. F5808 (Field Bus. Area is a required field )

Hi,

I am getting the following error while making PGI( T Code- VL02N )

-


Field Bus. Area is a required field for G/L account PLL 24012600

Message no. F5808

Diagnosis

The value for field "Bus. Area" in the interface to Financial Accounting is an initial value but you are required to make an entry in the field selection for G/L account "24012600" in company code "PLL" linked to the field selection for posting key "99".

System response

Error

Procedure

It might be an error in the configuration of the G/L account field selection. The initial application, used to call up the interface must otherwise define a value for field "Bus. Area". If this is the case, contact the consultant responsible for the application used to call up the interface or get in contact with SAP directly.

-


I have checked the Field status of FSV, Posying key 99 & Movement type 601- In all cases, the Business Area is a required field. We have made BA as required firld for the GLs' as we need Business Area Balance Sheet.

Please let me know how to resolve the issue.

With regards,

B.Padhy

    Hi,

    Kindly check whether document spiltting is active in you company code. if yes then document spiltting is done on the basis of one of two field that is Business Area or Profit Center. Check the setting for document spliting. If its activated then check which field from above two is the base for splitting.

    Secondy check the field status group assigned to your GL in master record it controls the field status for the field in the line item of the document for the GL.

    Possibly one of the above two places the Business Area field will be required entry.

    Please Check

    Regards

    JS

    Hi,

    If you want to keep the business area as reauired field, you should either provide it in the transaction and when it'(s not possible (internal process) use the functionality of substitution OBBH.

    Regards,

    Eli

    I had the same problem. For me it was the missing corresponding cost type (I hope that's the correct for German word "Kostenart"). Put it in place and the error was solved.

    Slightly misleading error message...
