Adding fields to a coding block

I’d like to add a field to a coding block but I’m a bit confused by these links:

https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/ERPFI/Coding+Block

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60_sp/helpdata/en/65/ec4bd7fb0f44f6814fa790dde9a172/content.htm

Ultimately, I’m not clear on how this new field makes it to the coding block screen and then to a database table (BSEG?).

The coding block screen below is invoked in F-65 when you press “More” from the “Enter G/L Account Item” screen. My goal is to add a field or fields to this screen.

The coding block screen number is:

Tcode OXK1 looks like a function to create a new coding block screen. I don’t want to do that.

Tcode OXK3 looks like a function to add a field to an existing coding block. That’s what I want.

Assuming that’s correct:

  • Is the new field added to "SAP Standard Account Assignments or "Customer-Defined Account Assignments?
  • COBL_FM and REIT_TAX_C are append structures on COBL.
  • Does OXK3 add fields to one of the structures mentioned above?
  • My impression was that these fields on COBL get copied back to BSEG but while that’s true for the elements on COBL_FM it’s not true for the other structure. So, in which table would the new fields reside?

Again, assuming I only need OXK3, how do the new fields get to SAPLKACB screen 0002?

If I had a sandbox, I’d work it out there. But with all of the cautions about the difficulty in backing out this mod, I can’t take a chance in the DEV system.

Then one of the links states that:

To be able to change and display a customer field in documents, you need to open it in the field status groups.

To change the field status groups…the IMG activity under the following path: Start of the navigation path "Financial Accounting (New)" Next navigation step"Financial Accounting Global Settings (New)" Next navigation step"Ledgers" Next navigation step"Fields" Next navigation step"Define Field Status Variants" End of the navigation path . Customer fields are located in the subgroup "Additional Account Assignments" . Depending on the G/L accounts that you want to use, you can open the customer field in all field status groups or just in the relevant ones.

I don’t see a subgroup "Additional Account Assignments".

And which fields status variant do I need to change:

Also from the link:

Besides the field status groups for G/L accounts, you also have to open the field in the field status for the posting key . You do this in the following IMG activity:

Start of the navigation path "Financial Accounting (New)" Next navigation step"Financial Accounting Global Settings (New)" Next navigation step"Document" Next navigation step"Define Posting Keys" End of the navigation path .

Is that correct?

Thanks

Hi,did you see your Z field in BSEG?

I don’t see a subgroup "Additional Account Assignments".

-you need to adjust Field status for Posting key(OB41) and Filed status group for GL account
