    Segment is not tied to GL Account. When you activate segments you need to assign these in the Profit Center master data. Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    Segment is one of the reporting function.

    The segment is then derived from the assigned profit center during posting.

    Regards,

    Hello,

    If you are asking about different segments of a GL master record, then there are 2 segments.

    1. Chart of accounts segment - Use T code FSP0 to create/view

    2. Company code segment. - Use Tcode FSS0 to create/view

    Chart of account segment contains 3 tabs

    a. Type/description - contains the GL name/description, GL account number, type of the GL -BS account or P&L account etc

    b. Keywords/translation - contains keywords and languages for translation

    c. Information - contains info such as created on , created by etc

    Comp code segment has 3 tabs

    a. Control data - contains fields such as GL currency, tax category sort key etc.

    b. create/bank/interest - field status grp, house bank interst indicator etc

    c. Information - craeted on , created by, chart of accounts, controlling area etc.

    But if you want to know how to assign a segment (which is an organisational unit representing a business area/operation of the organisation) then

    create segment in IMG - Enterprise structure - definition -FA - Define segment

    Assign the segment to profit centre in KE52

    you can enter the profit centre in line item when you post to the GL and system will derive the segment from PC. Or you can assign the PC to cost centre in KS02 and use the CC in line item.

    Dear,

    Segment is attached to profit center, When a GL accounts gets a posting you can check in the credit line item the profit center. This profit center passes the data into segment which is attached to profit center, segment reporting is used for IFRS etc. Just have a look at the link below.
