OBY9 vs OBY2

Hi Raj,

What is the difference between OBY9 Transport Chart of Accounts and OBY2 Copy GL Accounts to Company Code ?

I've already configured the Chart of Accounts for company code B. All I want to do is copy all the GL accounts from company code A to B. I can do this with OBY2, correct?

Do I still need to do OBY9?

Thanks!

    You are right. You can copy with OBY2. Transport is involved when it is need to be copied to another client.

    Hi,

    GL accounts are created under the Chart of Account. One Chart of Account can be assigned to many company code. Chart of Account is assigned to company code with OB62.

    OBY2 is used to copy the GL accounts from one company code to another company code within the same client and same Chart of Account.

    Whereas, OBY9 is used to copy the "Chart of Account" from one client to another client. These clients can local clients and remote clients.
