    Once you create a GL account as a BS item instead of P&L item, and some entries are posted to it, you will not be able to change at least for that year (This is true even though the balance is ZERO). Please read the following SAP text.

    If you determine that you erroneously defined a G/L account as a balance sheet account instead of a profit and loss account for the previous fiscal year, the G/L account master will have to be changed. You then have to rerun the SAPF011 program so that the balance carried forward for the G/L accounts is correct.

    Hope this is useful.
