Business Area Wise Proposal

Dear All

We recently got upgraded to ECC 6. In our company we created proposal for vendor payment and send it to each BU control after taking the proposal by business area. Now we are switching on to New GL with the document splitting functionality. We have cases where we have expenses of different business area but we book vendor liability in one business area. This was ok in classical general ledger. now if we activate new general ledger and with document splitting then we should not enter business area in vendor line item. and with the help of document splitting system splitting gl for liability based on expense propotion. But if we see vendor line item it will be without business area. We wonder in this case how we prepare payment proposal by business area

    I think the problem is caused by missing customizing that required in activating New GL. After activating the new GL, you also need to activate the inheritance.

    So, If you create a document of Customer or Vendor invoice from Revenue or Expense item, the entities such as Business area, segment or Profit center will be projected to the customer/Vendor and tax line item in General ledger view by activating inheritance field.

    The menu path is follow:

    General Ledger Accounting (New) > Business Transactions >Document Splitting-->Activate Document Splitting

    Tick the inheritance field.

    Please try.
