Combination of Account Assignment Category and G/L account - Exclusion


Dear Experts,

in SRM 7.0 Classic, we are facing the following questions:

Can we exclude a certain combination of Account Assignment Category and G/L Account from being used in the shopping cart?

The background is, that if a certain G/L account is used, the account assignment has to be WBS-Element.

Now in R/3, the above described requirement is customized. In R/3, it is not possible to create a PReq or a PO with any other account assignment than WBS, when you use this certain G/L account.

But in SRM, this customizing is not there currently. So, if the Requisitioner is not aware of the above described fact and is choosing e.g. Account Assignment Category "Cost Centre" and this certain G/L account, the shopping cart can be ordered and apporved. But at the time of the creation of the R/3 document out of this shopping cart, a backend application error is thrown.

Can you please give me any pointers regarding the question, whether such an exclusion can be customized in SRM?

Thank you very much.
