Account ket in purchasing procedure


I have an issue regarding to a purchasing condition.

I have defined a condition for "extra costs".

I need the cost to go to a different G/L account, meaning I want to define that for this conditon the cost will go to G/L AAA where as the regular purchasing price will go to the normal account.

I tried marking the condition as an accrual, but I had a problem here too, when ordering the the item (with the additional costs) G/L AAA was debited as expected but when returning the goods (with movmnt161) the G/L was debited once again. (SAP says this is because the conditon is marked as an accrual)

I thought to try to post the cost using the account key in the purchasing procedure, but I had no luck.

Can you please give me an idea how to solve this issue.

How is it possible to determine the G/L via account key.

Thanks in advance,

    try creating the new acct key in OBCN then assign the gl for this key in OB40

    then assign this key in pricing in front of the condition u required

    now try the scenario

    for returns 161 check the keys and gl accts for movement tyep 161 in omwb

      I've already defined the account in OBYC for FRE, but it doesn't work.

      Is there any definition I need to make in the condition? (somthing similar to the definition that when you mark a condition as an accrual, then in the procedure it goes to the GL that is linked to the accrual account key.)
