    Dear all friends,

    Thanks for yours help.

    I have already solved this problem. Product category 1042001 should be assigned to one asset account under relevant company code(business configuration), when it is used in PO(material-non-stock).

    Bests,

    Kudi

    Hello Kudi,

    If you are creating purchase order for Product ID, it will fetch the account determination from the product master. If you create purchase order for free text items, the account determination will be determined from Product Category.

    If you go to Business Configuration work center -> Fine Tune Activity -> Activity - Default Account Determination Group for Product Categories -> Here you can define the Account Determination based on Product Category. Once you define, the error is not appear again.

    Please test & mark this thread if it is helpful.

    Best Regards,
    Arun

    Hello Kudi,

    From the screen shots, I can see that you are creating Purchase Order for Material & not for Services. However in the Edit Default Account Determination Group for Product Categories, you have maintained the account determination Z040 for Services.

    Hence when you create PO for materials, system shows an error message.

    The Third Column is for Default Account Determination Group for Materials.

    The Fourth Column is for Default Account Determination Group for Services.

    Please maintain Z040 in materials group & then create a PO. This should fix the error.

    Best Regards,
    Arun

    Hi Kudi,

    As your product category is for material, you have to assign the desired account determination group to Default Account Determination Group for Material column.

    • Hello Fred,

      As mentioned comment above, it is very strange that same configs are useful to product category 1040101,1040703.

      P.S My product category is used in material and non-stock PO.

      Regards,

    Dear Kudi,

    Please show the full screenshot of "Edit Default Account Determination Group for Product Categories".

    In you current screenshot, only "Default Account Determination Group f" is visible. Please expand the column width so that we can see all the column description.

    It seems like you assigned account determination groups for "Services" only.

    You need to assign the ADG in Default Account Determination Group for Material column.

    Best Regards,

    Fred

    • Hi Kudi,

      Please approve the order and proceed goods and service receipt.

      I think you will be stopped at one point with the same error.

      I will also test it by myself.

      Best Regards,

      Fred
