Hi All,

I'm getting "Balancing field "Segment" in line item 002 not filled" IDOC error while posting confirmation for PO with account assignment as Asset. Could some one tel me what could be the issue? Please find the system response below for the error message.

Diagnosis: The field Segment marked as balancing is not filled with any value in line item 002, even after document splitting.

System Response :The document cannot be posted.

Procedure: First check your entries. Additional causes could be: No value can be derived for this field from the current document data. You have entered a document type that is not designed for this business purpose.

Hi Sasikanth,

Is the GL account balance sheet - asset account or asset reconciliation account ?

Please find the F1 help when double clicking on 'Edit cost element' in FS00 for the GL account.

Balance sheet accounts cannot be created as cost elements in cost accounting, except for:

Asset reconciliation accounts Material stock accounts for valuated sales order stock for sales orders or projects.

This is one of the most common causes for your situation.

Also, please refer to the following note, which contains important information about profit center inheritance into cost elements lines:

1592018 - Document splitting: Profit center inheritance in cost elements

Hope this is helpful,

Best Regards,
