Hi All,

Currently, Our GR/IR Clearing Account is GL 138000 at Asset Group in Balance Sheet. Accounting Manager wants to move the GR/IR Clearing Account from 138000 to 2XXXXX ) at Liability group in Balance Sheet.

1. ) How can we change the configuration ?

    1) Changing the GR/IR account is done in configuration with transaction OBYC. The transaction key is WRX.

    2) Before doing this change I would highly recommend to clear all differences in the old account using transaction MR11. If some of the differences have to be posted to the new account you need to do this with the respective transactions. e.g. MIGO, MIRO, etc.

    Bottom line this is a dangerous thing to do in a system were the GR/IR account was already posted at. It needs planning of the sequence and a lot of testing.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Lee,

    First you need to post invoice for all open GRs then you can change the G/L Acct. for GR/IR clearing Account (transaction event key WRX) in OBYC.

      yes you can do that, you are supposed to change the accout determination of asset to the desired gl account say xxxxx in OBYC. then whenn ever the end user posts invoice the GL account is debited automatically.

      Note: IN FS00 CHECK AUTOMATIC POSTING IN ACCOUNT MASTER.
