ME21N error

Hi Gurus,

I am trying to post an external service purchase order in ME21N.

I am encounturing following error. Please help

"G/L account 770003 cannot be used (please correct)

Message no. ME045

Diagnosis

Comparison of the field selection strings from the G/L account 770003 and the account assignment category Y reveals that there is an incompatible combination of field selections for the field selection group 'Profit Center'.

The G/L account field selection is stored in table T004F; that for the account assignment is stored in table T162K.

Procedure

Please enter a correct G/L account."

    Speak to your FICO colleague. The combination of required ( or possibly optional) fields for the account assignment category Y is critically different to that for the GL you are trying to use e.g. Profit Centre could be required for 'Y' but not possible to be combined with GL 770003.

    In other words the Account Assignment Category setting is incompatible with those for the GL.

    Regards,

    Nick

    Hi,

    Go to transaction SE38 and run the report "RM07CUFA"

    Enter the required paramenter (e.g. mvt. type, G/L account)

    This report will give the discrepancies in the field selection.

    Correct the filed selection for "Profit center" (either in account assignment or in G/L account- depending upon the business requirment).

    Cheers,

    Hello,

    The error message that you are getting is only because there is mismatch of Fields between movement type and account.

    The field selection group in an account contains the fields that are made mandatory from FI point of view and you need to make all those fields mandatry or optional in movement type depending upon scenario.

    Just below the error message you will find a "proceed" written.

    Click on that and you will find the mismatch of fields between account and movement type.

    Make changes accordingly.

    Regards

    Check the Master Data for the particular GL in FS00 and make necessary changes as required for the expense account as service is treated as expense.

      Dear Friends,

      Thanks all of you for your reply.

      Customizing incorrectly maintained

      Message no. SE729

      Does any one has any idea about that problem?
