Default cost center for bank fees

Hello all.

I am trying to default a cost center for the bank fees charged on a particular bank statment. What is the best way to accomplish this? We are ok trying to manually post these charges while in FEBA, but whenever we enter the cost center and profit center we receive the following error message:

Item category 20000 not allowed in accounting transaction 0400/0001

None of the g/l functional team knows what to do to correct the error.is there some additional configuration that we are missing?

Thanks

Alicia

    Hi Alicia.

    The error message is issued because business transaction 0400/transaction variant 0001 does not allow item category 20000 to be used. This is pre-configured in the system and shouldn't be changed by the customer.

    In this case, I'd suggest to create another transaction variant (ex.Z001) for business transaction 0000 - unspecified posting as it allows all item categories to be used and customizied according to the business needs.

    1) IMG: Define Business Transaction Variants

    - Select bus. trans. "0000" (unspecified posting)

    - Define your own transaction variant, e.g. Z001

    - Assign necessary item categories

    2) IMG: Define Splitting Rule

    - Add an entry using trans. variant created at pervious step.

    e.g. splitting method : 0000000001

    business transaction : 0000

    trans varian : Z001

    - Make necessary customizing for "item categories to be edited" and

    "Base item categories" referring to 0400/0001 setting.

    3) IMG: Classify Document Types for Document Splitting

    - Assign bus. trans. 0000 / variant Z001 to the document type

    used for the bank reconciliation posting

    Or you can try to use transaction OKB9 and set a default cost center for this account. But this rule will affect all accounting postings.

    Regards,

    Jaisson.

    Thanks so much for the information.

    I have gone into our sandbox and started trying to follow your instructions.

    Under define business transaction variants, I clicked on new entries, fully expecting the normal input fields to be available.

    Everything is greyed out, not allowing any input.

    Is this normal for this activity? Could I be lacking some access?

    Thanks

    Alicia

    Disregard my last post regarding this thread.

    I followed your instructions and make the change in our sandbox. and *behold!* This allowed me to make the posting.

    Now I just have to do this for real!!

    Thanks so much for the help.
