Update Alternative Account Number (ALTKT) on FI line items (BSEG)?

Hi SAP Experts,

We would like to know whether is possible to update the alternative account numbers (ALTKT) on already FI posted document.

We know changing the "Group Account Number" on GL Master Data (SKA1-BILKT) will be not enough to correct the incorrect balance due the correction on master data is not retroactive.

Which is the best approach to fix this balance?; we also have EC CS (Consolidation)

Best Regards!

    hi,

    officially, you should create a new account and transfer the posting and block the old account, but you can

    post the balance to zero. change add the ALTKT to the account (probably have to force it), repost the balance to the account.

    May be you can think of posting a summary document with correct Alt. Account number instead of thinking correcting in the posted documents.

    Ex:- GL Account 123 has been updated with Alt. Account Number 987. You posted 100 documents. Now you realised that those postings are wrong due to wrong Alt. Account Number. You can post one document for those 100 documents as an adjustment which will nullify the balance to Zero.

    And then change the Alt. Account in GL Master (1650435 follow this SAP note) and post one more summary document with the updated Alt. Account Number. This will solve your problems.

    Please note that, this will be possible with manual accounts only. If the accounts are post automatic, then this workaround will not work.

    Thanks,
