Common segment postngs

Dear all,

I have a special question on the segment reporting. Currently we have so many segments and each company is busy in more than one segment. Which means every transactions should be tagged to the corresponding segments. For the unidentified transactions, a common segment will be prompted by the system in the means of Constant. During the month end, these line items should be re assigned to the original segments/profit centers to nullify the common segment.

Like, re post CO line items in the CO modules (for expenditure line items), do we have any option to re post to the original profit center/segment (for B/S items or other than CO line items), in the other words, do we got any solution to transfer the values from one profit center to another profit center by using the same G/L account?

Please give me your valuable suggestion

Thanks & Regards,

    Create Profit center assessment cycle through 3kE1

    and execute it on month end through 3KE5

    Here system transfer the Common profit center balance to receiver profit centers based on the parameters which you have given in 3KE1. There is no change in the GL balance.

      Dear All,

      Thank you very much for your kind suggestions.

      My requirement is to re post the Balance sheet items from one profit center to another profit center without specifying any ledger, which means the transfer posting should update all the ledgers. Besides, this will take place for inter segment postings (more or less) to picture complete balance sheet, the document splitting procedure will split the line items taken place and it will generate the additional clearing line items to balance the balancing field (segment). In this process, I found that SAP has given a new concept called "G/L Allocations" where the cycle will be created at ledger level, which means when do the G/L allocation from one ledger to another ledger, then where is the meaning of ledger specific postings as the system will decrease the balance from the source ledger and will add the balances to the target ledger which is not required. If you see from Segment dimension, it is correct. But if see from Ledger dimension, it is wrong I guess.

      In this context, please advice me

      Thanks & Regards,
