Approver cannot approve account though he has enough amount.


Hello SAP-FI Gurus,

I have this issue that has something to do with the Approver being not able to approve an amount in the PO posted.

The PO posted has this IR(Invoice) which has a G/L account of 6-digit number. Determining the expense type helps us know the amount the approver is only allowed to approve for a certain document type and company code. What I did was like this:

Example: G/L Account = 510060

Here, the expense type is '051'. Since it is a 6-digit G/L account, is it right to just add '0' and get the last 2 digit (51)? Hence, 051 is the expense type. Is that correct?

Now I looked at the table which gives us data for what amount can an approver approve. In my case the amount is 2 million USD; the amount in the IR is just 400 thousand USD. So the approver must be able to approve that amount.

But my problem is that the approver was not able to approve.

Gurus, where should the issue come from?

Thank you,
