    Check whether this is available in your field status of the line item.

    check OB41

    Check Field status group of the GL Account.

    If in field status itself you have not maintained, then no way that it can be shown and changeable.

    • Hello,

      As explained by Srikanth, you cannot have it in field status. Therefore, it cannot be maintained. When a field is not available in field status itself the same cannot be either be changeable. You need to maintain the planning level at GL master.

    It will not appear in document entry. You have to maintain it in GL master record.

    Read the SAP help text on Planning Level.

    Planning level

    The planning level is used to control displays in Cash Management.

    The following levels could be possible:

    Only noted items in the cash position

    Only noted items in the liquidity forecast

    Purchase orders

    Sales orders

    Notified incoming payments

    FI payment settlements (incoming checks, outgoing checks, bills of exchange, payments)

    FI bank transactions (bank statement postings, cashed checks, bill of exchange payments)

    You can freely choose the planning levels. You should, however, follow a naming convention:

    To improve the display of the cash position and liquidity forecast, you should reserve levels that start with "F" or "B" for automatically updating data during posting. F levels should be used for bank accounts, customers, and vendors, and B levels for bank clearing accounts.


    F0: bank accounts

    F1: purchasing/sales (customers/vendors)

    FF: down payment requests

    FW: bills of exchange

    B1: bank clearing accounts, outgoing checks

    B2: bank clearing accounts, outgoing bank transfers (domestic)

    B3: bank clearing accounts, outgoing bank transfers (foreign country)

    B4: bank clearing accounts, bank collection

    and so on.

    When displaying the cash position, you can then see because of level F0 that the amounts are posted to the bank account, whereas the other levels show planned bank account transactions, which include entered payment advices or postings to bank clearing accounts. You can then use the display to compare planned date with actual data.

    In addition, you should reserve levels, for example, all levels beginning with X, to represent postings with payment blocking indicators in the liquidity forecast. When displaying the liquidity forecast, you can then see because of these levels that the displayed amounts are postings with payment blocking indicators.

    General notes on accounts, or planning groups, and planning levels:

    Accounts/groups and levels enable you to look at data two different ways.

    Accounts/groups answer the who question.

    Which (major) customers or suppliers?

    Which customer or supplier group?

    Which bank account or bank clearing account?

    Levels answer the how question.

    How information was entered into the system (posting or payment advice or planned item)?

    How an amount is posted (normal posting or special G/L transaction)?

    How accurate information is

    With amounts in the "outgoing transfers" level, you know the exact date on which the account is debited, but with amounts in the "outgoing checks" level, the date on which the account is debited is uncertain.

    In levels for MM and SD, both the amount and the planning date are more uncertain than the amount and date in FI postings, since the vendor may, for example, deliver only a subset or the delivery may be delayed. In addition, the system always displays MM amounts without taxes in the liquidity forecast (in purchase orders, tax is not displayed if it can be deducted; in purchase requisitions, it is never displayed).

    Where are cash management levels assigned in the system?

    In G/L accounts, you define the level in the company-code-specific part of the master record.

    For accounts receivable and payable, you define a standard level in the cash management and forecast group.

    At this time, you can define different levels for the following applications and activities:

    Locked items

    Special G/L transactions

    Payment requests

    Purchase orders and purchase requisitions


    Agency deals



    Money market, foreign exchange, derivatives

    Real estate

    Earmarked funds

    The levels defined should be unique - meaning you must not define the same level for more than one application or activity as this may affect the clarity of the display in the cash position or liquidity forecast. It might also adversely affect the function for jumping from these transactions to the correct application or line item display.
