    The general ledger is a collection of the group of accounts that supports the items shown in the major financial statements.

    Note 815849 - FAQ: Account assignment system response

    Define G/L Account for Product Category and Account Assignme

    In this activity, you specify the G/L account that is to be posted to in Financial Accounting in the backend system, depending on the product category and the account assignment category.

    Note that for each product category that you work with, you have to enter all possible account assignment categories and a G/L account.

    You can also enter the product category generically (for example, Office*).

    You can use the Business Add-In BADI BBP_DETERMINE_ACCT if you want to implement a different logic for determining the G/L account.


    Procurement card: If an item is ordered with a procurement card, the system uses the account assignment defined for the procurement card.


    You have configured the account assignment categories in the step "Define Account Assignment Categories".


    1. Enter the category ID, the source system, the account assignment category, and theG/L account.
