Bank Account Validation

Hello Experts,

In my organisation, as usual, bank accounts are maintained as Inward/outward & main account. I have two questions.

1. When I make a payment SAP accepts inward account & same is the case when I post bank receipts, SAP accepts outward account. There is no control. How to contorl that when payments are made only outward account is accepted & vice versa.

2. We have profit centerwise bank account how to control that if profit center is 1 then bank account should ABC & if profit center is 2 bank account should be XYZ.

Please advise

    In the first part regarding the selection of clearing accounts, there are two options:

    In the manual posting, you have to select the correct bank account GL (In/Out) for posting.

    If it is through APP, you will have to customize the Outward account with cheque management for payment in FBZP settings.

    Now, regarding the Profit Centre-Bank Account assignment, you can assign default Profit centre assignment to your Bank accounts. The path is :

    General Ledger new -> Master data -> Profit Centre -> Assign default Profit centre to Accounts

      Hi Shailesh

      Yes you can have a validation but that would eb avery crude way of restricting the surs. You can have a set of all payment Bank GL codes. Through validation you can force that if t-code F-53/F-58 is used then the "Credit" side GL code must be from the predefined set. You can have numerous variations of this validation.
