Posting Key determination

Dear All,

I have a query regarding how posting key is getting determined automatically.

Example : When raising one sales invoice along with discount to the customer, in that case A/c posting is happening as follows :

Customer A/c Dr

Discount A/c Dr

To Sales A/c Cr

How the above A/c posting (Dr / Cr ) is getting generated automatically? How it is understanding Customer and Discount are to l be debited and sales to be Credited ? I want to know the step by step configuration in IMG.

Regards

Soumitra Bhattacharjee

    Hi,

    Go to T. Code: FBKP/ OB41

    There you will find a list of Posting keys, maintained for various kinda postings.

    Say, Posting Key:

    40 - Debit entry (Double-click on to the Field and Maintain Field Status)

    50 - Credit entry (Double-click on to the Field and Maintain Field Status)

    Along with which we describe Account type as Vendor/ Customer/ Asset/ G/L Account etc...

    Say, its G/L Account.

    T. Code: OBX1

    Check Posting Keys for Transaction.

    Similarly, For Customer,

    T. Code: OBXR

    And, For Vendor

    T. Code: OBYR

    Best Regards,

    Amit.

      Dear Srinivasa

      Thanks for your reply.

      Basically our query was not for JV. While posting a sales invoice using VF01, in the accounting doc we are getting the customer a/c is debited with PK 01. How the automatic assignment of PK 01 is done?

      At the same time when we are creating Credit note using the same Tcode i.e VF01, how the system is assigning the PK 11 to the customer?

      Can u please tell us the link among the following

      SD Document Category (M-Invoice / O - Cr Memo) under Billing type (VOFA) and 01 PK of Invoice / 11 PK of Cr Memo in OB41.

      Regards
