Change the Recon Account Type

Hi,

The users are trying to post the entry into a GL Account directly using the T Code FB50. However, the system gives the error message -

"Account XXX in Company Code XXX is marked as a reconciliation account for account type "D" and cannot therefore be directly posted."

When we check the GL Master using the T Code FS00, we find that the GL Code has not been marked for automatic posting. Could you please advise as to how can we change the Account Type from Recon to non Recon type. This GL Code is not intended by the users for any of the Subsidiary accounts such as Vendors/Customers.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

    You cannot change recon type to customers unlike Assets Recon accounts. Instead block this GL and use new Account.

    • Hi Rajjul,

      recon account measn you can not directly post to this GL account. You need to select customer and post to this customer and system will post amount to this GL account which you have assigned in customer master.

      If you want to make direct posting to this GL account, need to remove recon type from this GL.

      Go to FS00, select GL account. Go to 'control data' tab abd remove recon account for acc type as customer. Put blank.

      and save.

      before you do this plz make sure that you have not done any kind of entry on this account.

      Now system will allow you to post directly on this GL.

      I hope this helps you. Assign points if useful.

      Regards,

      Pritam

    Hello Rajjul,

    You cann't make the postings to recon accounts. Recon acconts will show u all ledger balances means in a consolidted form. Ex: there are 30 vendors and use recon account X. So these 30 vendor sub ledger balances will show u in X.

    I am not sure, system may not allow you to change the recon account. Moreover u can take permission from ur PL and client as well. Instead of this you can create one more gl account in FS00 as normal gl. Please transfer the old bal from old account to new account after that u can block that old gl. now onward u can use new gl only

    Thanks

    If you follow this step your problem will be resolved defenately

    Go to T.code "OAMK" and remove the Recon from GL ac then you can make the entry directly
