    Hi,

    Have you posted any transactional data in your company code

    If so first of all you have to delete all the transaction data in the company code through OBR1 and then delete your GL master data and then change the Chart of accounts thorugh OBY6 .

    May be this information is useful to you

    If you have any doubt feel free to ask

    Regards

    Surya

    Hi Manoja,

    It seems you want to change the Chart of Accounts assigned to a company code.

    Once the chart of accounts is assigned to a company code and some transactions are posted, you cannot change the assignment. If at all you want to change, you then need to reset the company code data (It deletes all the transactions posted in a company code). The TCode for resetting transaction data for a company code is OBR1. Once you have deleted all the transactions, now you can assign another chart of accounts for your company code.

    Be careful, Resetting the Transaction data for a company code deletes all the transactional data posted to the company code. Double check before doing it..

    Hope this helps you....

    Regards,

    Here steps to change the COA of a company code that was created by copying another:

    1. Uncheck company code productive in "Company code global data". This can be found via SPRO -> Financial Accounting -> Financial accounting global settings -> Company Code -> Enter global parameters
    2. Reset transaction data for company code. T. Code --> OBR1. Enter the company code you want to reset the data for. Other option include resetting relevant CO data, regenerating credit limits and deleting matchcodes. Note: resetting CO data will only work at Controlling area level. It is recommended you do a test run prior to production run. This will display information on data being reset.
    3. Delete master data. T.Code --> OBR2. This transaction can be used to delete customer, vendor and GL master data. Select the GL Account box and enter the relevant GL account number/ range or leave blank to delete all GL accounts. In deletion depth, select "With general master data in company code" and enter the relevant company code.
    4. Now the COA can be changed in the company code global data. If you need to copy the GL accounts from another Company code use T. Code OBY2

    I think this can be useful for you
