G/L account picked for the "wrong" source system entry

Dear Experts,

in SRM 7.0, Classic Scenario, i am facing the following issue with respect to G/L account determination in the SC:

We have three R/3 systems connected to SRM. All these R/3 systems use the same Material Groups, but the G/L accounts are different in each R/3 system.

In the Table "Determination of G/L Account using product categories", i have maintained the repsective combinations. For each combination of product category and account assignment category, the respective G/L account is defaultet for the respective source system.

But in the shopping cart, the determination of the correct G/L does not always work. When a user enters the shopping cart initially with a line item that is accounted to his default account assignment category, than the correct G/L account for his source system is derived. But if he changes the account assignment category of the line item, than a G/L account from a "wrong" source system is getting picked up from the table.

I have checked the GUIDs of the product categories between "Comm_category" and "bbp_det_account" and they are correct.

What can be the reason for the picking of the G/L account from the wrong source system?

Can the note 1357871 bring the correction?

Thank you very much!

    The note you were referring is for SP 04. I am sure you are on higher package and might not be applicable.

    I think it is detemining from your configuration where you might have defined like PRCAT1-R3CLNT100-CC-G/L1, PRCAT1-R3CLNT200-FI-G/L2. Initially when you have selected CC it detemines G/L1 and when you change the category to FI it changes to G/L2.

    Check this let us know your findings.

      Make sure that you specify a correct combination of Category Id, Source System , Account Assignment Category and G/L Account in the configuration "Define G/L Account for Product Category and Account Assignment Category"

      At the same time, make sure that product categoies are perfectly replicated from respective backends and the User who is creating the Cart has proper Backend system maintained against the Product Categories in his Extended Attributes.
