MIR7 - Error5808


we have a problem with the Park Invoice (MIR7).

On the general ledger block of the logistics audit (transaction MIRO) the field BEWAR (transaction type) is present, which are not supported.

The field BEWAR is filled, yet the error comes: "Field Trans.Type is a required field for G/L account 0001 39130" (Error F5808).

Why aren't contents of the field accepted?

    Dear J.V,

    not sure if you still have this issue but:

    For MIRO to automatically fill the business area it must be able to

    uniquely identify a business area.

    This means that for multiple materials each one must have the same

    business area for IV to fill the vendor line item. This does not

    appear to the case here so MIRO is not able to determine whether it

    should use the business area it is able to determine or none at all

    so it uses none. This is the way the system is designed. To correct

    his I recommend reviewing your material set-up and try to correct

    any business area inconsistencies.

    The System fills the Business Area in the Vendor Item if a Business Area

    can explicitly be determined from the Offsetting Entries. If several

    Business Areas were used for the Offsetting Entries, the Field in the

    Vendor Item IS NOT FILLED.

    Because 'several' Business Areas are used the Field in the Vendor Item

    is not filled.

    If you repeat the Simulation with only Items with the same Business Area

    the system will set the same in the Vendor Item.

    1) To eliminate the Error F5808 you would have to change the Setting in

    Transaction OBC4, and set the field to 'optional'

    Field Status Variant : xxxx

    Group : xxxx

    Additional Account Assignment

    Business Area : Required > change to Optional

    This should allow an Invoice posting with several Line Items including

    including different Business Areas.

    2) Also, please check the field status of the posting key in OB41.

    3) To determine the field 'Business area' automatically in the creditor

    line, you select the field 'Business area B/S' in Transaction OB65

    (financial accounting).

    Hope that helps,
