Where do I find the Group account number in SAP system

Hi All,

I have the same problem. I work in a company where all was installed and configured before my arrival and so I always need to do a lot of research to solve a problem.

I tried somedays ago using txcode FS00 to create a new GL account but got stocked because the system requested a Group Account Number (Consolidation data in Charts of Accounts).

I do not know where to find this number in the system. After a very long search, I have given up searching and hereby ask for your help.

Can anyone tell me where to find the Group Account Number in the system. Is there a txcode for this? I tried already OBD4.

As I am new in the SAP world, a step by step explanation will be appreciated.

Many thanks in advance

    Go to T.Code SE16 enter Table SKA1. Check for the field BILKT.

    There u will get Group account number for other g/ls check from which similar g/l account u want to copy and use it.

    And dont get disappointed 😊 SAP is like ocean ,people keep on learning even after spending 20 years .Keep on trying and enjoy the process of learning.

    Hi Mandar,

    Thanks very much for your quick response. I am sorry for the late reply.

    I checked the table SKA1 like you described it but on field BILKT are no data. This field is completely empty.

    Maybe another way will be to detail me on how to create group account numbers as it can be that from here, I may get a clear picture of where to find the Group account numbers.

    Many thanks

      Hello aolowu

      Group Account Number field has lot of year/period end ramifications. Here is the definition " When you define the balance sheet and PL structures, then accounts are assigned to line items within the balance sheet and PL. This assignment is made either via the G/L account number or alternatively via the group account number given in this field. The usage of the group account number offers the advantage that by specifying a number, a group of accounts can be assigned immediately to the balance sheet or P+L item". Suggest you work with a FI guy.

      To quickly get over however, you can enter the same number that you are creating in that field. At my current client, I have seen several accounts set up like this, although many of them have a different number there.
