Shipment Cost Document : Automatic G/L Account Determination

Hi All,

I'm currently working on the Shipment Connfiguration. Whenever I try to create the shipment cost document, I have to manually enter the G/L account upon which I tick on transfer field which then creates the service PO.

Could anyone tell the steps for automaic G/L account determination in the Shipment Cost Document.

Regards

Rasheed

    Hi,

    If you want to get G/L account and Cost center automatically during shipment cost creation you mentain account assignment category as "K" in the purchase order and then you maintain G/L account and Cost center at item level under "Account assignment" tab,so that you get account determination automatically during shipmet cost creation.

    Please make a note "Account assignment " tab is only visible if you select account assignment category as "K" in the PO.

    Please revert if you need further clarifications.

    Regards,

    Chandra

      Hi,

      Are you looking this particular field in the purchase order line item level?make sure that filed is called "Account assignment".

      As you sid if you maintain "sales order" you will get G/L account and sales order there at item level under acct assignmnet tab.

      Note:Once the shipment cost generated then G/L acct and Cost center will update,you can check this by taking any old shipment cost numbers which are successfully transferred to accounting.

      Please get back to me if you need further help.

      Regards,

    Dear Rasheed

    Menu path:

    IMG - Logistics execution - Transportation - Shipment Costs - Settlement - Automatic G/L A/C determination

    Goto Account Assignment tab - select 'WRX' GR/IR Clearing Acct. - Enter the Chart of Acct. - Select Valuation Class for Services - Assign G/L Acct ' GR/IR Clearing External Procurement Acct.'

    Also check in IMG - Logistics execution - Transportation - Shipment Costs - Shipment Cost Doc - Shipment Cost Types & Item Categ. - whether the Valuation Class is assigned to relevant item categories.

    Hope this helps u.
