    Hi,

    The alternative account number field in the company code area is freely definable. You could use it to enter:

    1. the account number from your legacy system or

    2. the account number from a country chart of accounts if your corporate group uses a standard chart of accounts.

    The alternative account number is only issued in the financial statement if you explicitly assign it to the relevant items in the financial statement version.

    Regards,

    Jigar

    Hi,

    when you are maintaining operative chart of account and country chart of account you have to map one to one account for these. In company code level data of operative chart of account you link both chart of account.

    Warm Regards
