    HI,

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    They are using these cost centers from beginning of this year i.e., 01.01.2009. So, thousands of documents have already been posted with Business area. How can we remove this business area from already posted documents?

    Thanks once again.

    Laxmi.

      Hi,

      If there are thousands of documents, in that case what you can do is to take out the balance of each business area per G/L and post that balance from that business area to blank business area.

      Suppose there is XXXX G/L, for which there is balance in 3 business area e.g. BAREA1, BAREA2 & BAREA3. What you can do is to transfer the balance of BAREA1 from it's existing business area to blank business area. And similarly same to be carried out for BAREA2 & BAREA3.

      This thing should be repeated for all other G/Ls, in which there is balance in any business area.

      You can take out the figures from various tables and filter it by business areas. Further to upload the transactions, you can carry out LSMW process.

      If above is not feasible then just see, if the transactions are left with business areas for current year and while you transfer the balances next year, make sure that above process is carried out for all the balances being uploaded (i.e. to transfer balance from business area to blank business area).

      Hope you found my suggestion useful.

      Regards

      K Khatri

    Hi,

    You can remove the business area from those documents which are parked and not posted.

    But, so far as the documents which are already posted, you need to repost those documents from their current posting to new posting (Without Business Area). This way, they will not appear in business area. (It is sort of Journal Entry).

    Hope you will find this useful. Please get back, in case of any doubt.

    All the best !!

    Regards

    K Khatri

    Hello,

    As K Khatri mentioned, you could transfer the balance of G/L account with GSBER to another G/L account without GSBER. and you could also write a small program for making system to find the documents then change GSBER to blank.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks for your prompt responses.

    Client is not really concerned about the Business Areas, since, they are not all using Business Area Concept? User wrongly posted all these documents with Business area to cost centers. So, how could i eliminate this Business area from those documents which have already been posted to Cost centers. Is there any standard Program which eliminates this Business Area from all these posted documents?

    Thanks to you all once again,

    Laxmi.
