PO - GL Account Field - display only

Hi,

Please could you advise on the options for making G/L Account field display only in ME21n?

I think there are probably a few ways of doing it which I am investigating, but would like your opinion and advice if possible.

Thanks in advance.

As always - points up for grabs!

    Hope you are doing cost center accouting with account assignment K while creating PO

    Then go to MM --> Purchasing --> Account assignment --> Maintain account assignment category _-> Select cost center K --> Change view account assignment details you can

    make G L account as mand or optional or display or hidden.

    Check this out please if it helps you.

      Thanks Sridhar. Forgot to mention in my previous post that we would like to made the field display only on a User or Role basis?

      I dont think this is possible as standard using your suggestion? Any other advice?

      So to summarise the requirement is as follows:

      User A creates ECC PO but cannot change defaulted GL account

      User B creates ECC PO and can change GL account

      I tried to create a transaction variant for ME21n, but i couldn't see how to make the GL field display only. I went to SHD0 to create the variant, but once I was in the transaction (ME21n) I couldnt work out how I would make any of the fields display only. I've had a search on the forums, but didnt find anything too helpful.

      Also would I be able create such a variant on a role basis, rather than for specific users?

      Any advice?
