    Hi Raghuvir,

    There were critical reasons why the split of the open line items of prior years has not provided within the standard migration scenarios.

    The structure and the account assignment information of the already posted documents from the prior years is probably does not satisfy the new document splitting. Therefore it is not possible to split the documents form phase 0 (migration cockpit) based on the new the splitting rules set in the customizing.

    It is also too critical to allow a customer based split in the BAdI since it cannot be garanteed if the sum of split amounts in all the

    currencies still equal the old amount. Furthermore it cannot be traced any more where the split amounts are coming from which would lead to a problems regarding the auditability of the new g/l migration.

    The only possiblity that SAP can offer to the customers is to take over the split amounts from the already existing SL ledgers which have been used before the migration to new g/l.

    I believe that this answer your inquiry. I am sorry that I cannot give you a more positive answer regarding your issue.

    Kind Regards,
