SAP PSM NewGL - Document Splitting using a custom added field to FMGLFLEXT


We are a Public Sector Client and migrating from classic GL to New GL and we plan to use FMGLFLEXT with Fund, Grant and Business area as zero balancing document splitting criteria for the GL

Is there an option to add a custom field to our tables and coding block and then add it to the document splitting criteria for GL with zero balancing? This would be a great improvement for the business to provide them with an additional dimension to their reporting.

I have done it in the past for Non PSM scenarios (FAGL** scenarios) there was some development and substitutions involved - but it was certainly dooable.

So wondering if it is the same with FMGL*** scenarios - Please let me know

Thanks for your help

    Of course... Classic example, that you have to add profit centre to FMGLFLEXT. Consult OSS note for more info:
