    Hi,

    this is completely different:

    Validation: The process of checking values and combinations of values as they are entered into the SAP system.

    The field status group controls screen selection and the maintenance levels of the field groups in the asset master record.

    regards Bernhard

      Hi...

      Use

      In this IMG activity, you can define a Validierung that the system will

      work through when you create or change accrual objects. You can use the

      validation, for example, to check whether you can enter a certain

      accrual type is allowed when creating an accrual object for an

      accounting principle.

      For general information on creating validations, see

      o the Implementation Guide for Special Ledgers, under Tools ->

      Maintain Validation/Substitution/Rules -> Validierung pflegen

      o the SAP library, under Accounting -> Financials -> Special Ledgers

      -> Tools -> Validation, Substitution and Rules

      Requirements

      In your validation, you can also use a user-defined field that you have

      created in your own parameter structure. To ensure that you can use this

      field for defining a validation, you have to make the following

      settings:

      1. You have to define an append structure zu for the SAP structure

      ACEVSR_VAL_PAR. You have to add the required user-defined field to

      the append structure. Proceed as follows:

      a) From the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Tools -> ABAP Workbench

      -> Development -> Dictionary (transaction SE11).

      b) In the database table field, enter ACEVSR_VAL_PAR and choose Change.

      c) Choose Activate and then Append Structure.

      d) Choose New Entries, enter a name in the customer namespace and

      choose Enter.

      e) Add the required field to your append structure.

      Save your settings.

      2. You have to add the field to the SAP structure ACAC_PARAMETERS. To

      do so, proceed as follows:

      a) From the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Tools -> ABAP Workbench

      -> Development -> Dictionary (transaction SE11).

      b) In the database table field, enter ACAC_PARAMETERS and choose

      Change.

      c) Enter the required user-defined field.

      d) Choose Activate.

      e) Save your settings.

      3. Assign the required user-defined field to the accrual object

      categories in which you want to use the field.

      To do so, call up Customizing for Manual Accruals and choose Basic

      Settings -> Technical Settings -> Accrual Object Categories ->

      Abgrenzungsobjekttypen Parameter zuordnen

      Activities

      4. Define your validation.

      5. Now activate your validation.

      I hope it will helps you.

      Regards

      vamsi
