Account determination

Hi,

In our project, we dont maintain material masters. We use only material groups. I would like to know how the account determinatiion could be done? How the material groups could be mapped to the G/L accounts?

In other words, how the materials be set up in such a scenario?

Thanks and regards

Aparna

    hi,

    You can link Material group & valuation class going into T code "OMQW".Valuation class are further linked to G/L account as in normal account determination.This is how system recognize G/L account.

    Hi!

    You can see the SAP Note 301477 in this regard:

    "As of Release 4.0, you can enter a valuation class for the material group (Transaction OMQW). By means of this valuation class, the G/L account is determined in the purchase order which is relevant for transaction/event KBS provided that no material master record exists for the material ordered. The determination of the GR/IR clearing account is always carried out with an empty valuation class.

    If you want to use the valuation class for the material group in order to determine the GR/IR clearing account, you can implement this function with the help of enhancement LMR1M002 described in Note 165692."

    Therefore, you can enter a valuation class for the material group in OMQW and this, together with the enhancement LMR1M002, will help you to determine the G/L account for the WRX line.

    Otherwise, if you do not use this enhancement, "the determination of the GR/IR clearing account - WRX - is always carried out with an empty valuation class".

    I hope this helps!

    Esther.

    Hi

    If you use material group as base for postings then you need to give account assighment category - then it becomes consumption posting. Check OMQW tcode for valuation class assignment to material group.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    First u can assign the Valuation class to gl acct in OBYC

    if u have any consumable materials for which u dont want to keep inventory but u need the valuation then u can do it

    if u use this ,the material grp for accounting

    u dont have to manually give accounts for the consumable postings by mat grp system will determine it

    Create a new mat grp in OMSF

    go to OMQW here assign the val class to the mat grp

    then create po with description as note book

    then give mat grp, plant ,vendor, price save and do gr

    and do gr

    hopr it clears

    Hi,

    In a few cases, we dont create purchase orders but just post invoices. Which transaction key should I refer? Or could you please explain the process?

    Thanks and regards
