maintain account assignment category K

Hi Expert!

I have an issue regarding to activate account assignment category for purchase materials so that when user raise PO for marketing, capex and services using PO document type ZNI1, they are able to put GL acc and cost centre. So in this case, i'm planning to maintain acc assignment cat K. I've never do any config regarding acc assignment category previously. So i don't know what are the steps from A - Z on how to configure it. I don't know what are the impact on accounting, inventory(if any), what data to be consider,what to maintain and where to maintain such like GL acc, cost centre, is there any link need to be set up between acc assignment category with item category and PO document type.. and on and on..

So can anyone please guide me step by step just like how u implement this in project? Please help..

Thanks.

    hI,

    Please follow the below path to maintain the PO dument type and item category:

    SPRO Materials Management -Purchasing Purchase Order -Define Document Types .

    Here u can define the allowed item category for any PO document type.

    Tomaintain the account assignment please use transaction code OME9.

    After doing all these settimngs you can create PO in transaction code ME21N.

    When you are creating PO, please use the required PO document type and also select the account assignment category K from the drop down list.

    Hi

    Please try the below steps for your new document type

    1) Create the Document type by copying the standard doc type and you have the option to allow the item categories for the document type.( IMG>MM>Purchasing>PO>Document type)

    2) Account assignment category K is already available in the standard SAP and also the combination of acc ass cat & Item categories.( IMG>MM>Purchasing>Account assignment)

    3) If you want to assign the GL accounts separately then create the Valuation class, assign the valuation class to the Material group, then maintain the entries in OBYC for transaction event key GBB with VBR/Valu cl / GL account.

    Hope it helps

    Thanks /Karthik

    ok what about the accounting part? do i need to set up OBYC for GL acc and OKB9 for cost centre? Is there any set up i need to do for accounting eefect when they do MIGO or MIRO? What about the account mofication? i still can't get it clearly. I don't think it is as simple as set up in OMe9 only..

    Once everything done, is there any impact to current processes or other transaction? Do i need to consider any open transaction before i proceed with the acc assignment cat config?

    Please advise..

    Thanks.

    ok no problem.but it is not yet done. I still don't understand what did karthik means by separate GL account. Is it because i have 3 type of material which we can say material group; services,capex and marketing. maybe each of them will have different item category with the same acc assignment cat K, different material group which then will be mapped to different valuation class. And each valuation class will be mapped to different groups of GLs and cost centre. Is that what u mean karthik? Means if i don't want to have it separately, do i still need to create material group and valuation class? do i still need to do all those setup?

    And then one more thing, in SAP i have more than 1 company codes. but i only want to maintain this for only 1 company code let say 6S01. so how can i map it?

    Thanks.
