    Dear Vidya,

    Alternative account number is one tool to get similar GL's total.Business can use like this.

    1. You can use same numbers in FSV instead of manin GL's

    2. You can use same to get group of GL's total

    3. You can get same all standard SAP reports.

    Hi

    Alternative Account no means , before implementation your existing system also GL accounts,

    the purpose of this is only when u implement SAP , and create GL account in FS00 , u enter alternative account no of that GL account in your existing ssytem

    suppose in tally u given no in

    GL account Printing & statioanry 500

    then if u create same GL in SAP FS00 transaction code

    u enter this no in FS00 Alternative account no field

    so it reconcile this is same account which is uses in existing ssytem

    If any query revert back

    Regards
