Step 1: EA00 tcode

Step2: When trying to bill the error is 'This G/L account is blocked against posting or is a reconciliation account and cannot be posted to directly'.

    Hi Soumen,

    Check all the subtransactions you are using in Rates.

    Goto EK02, Enter your chart of accounts, here you can check the G/L accounts to which your subtransactions(in the schema rates) are posting the values for the company code and main txn.

    Now goto FS00, enter your G/L account. Check in the Control Data tab if field 'Recon. account for account type', it must be blank.

    If there is any value updated in this field, it means it is a recon. account and you can not directly post to it.

    Also, chek if there are any blocks are on the G/L account. You can do this by chicking the 'LOCK' indicator on the screen. There must be no checkbox marked. If a checkbox is marked against 'blocked for posting'.

    hope this helps,

      Hi Soumen,

      Once you generate a billing and invoicing document the entry will get posted is Dr Accounts receivable and Cr Revenue account, your accounts receivables account GL ( reconciliation GL) will be define in transaction code EK01 and in EK02 revenue GL account( not a reconciliaition GL) will be given. In your scenario they have given the reconciliaiton account and if there are no postings to that GL then you would have able to change the status now that there are some GL postings already there I don't think its possible to change the status , the only option available is create a new GL and assign it.
