    Please read carefully note 1227504.

    If you activate a ledger later on - whether in order to implement parallel accounting or to change an existing accounts approach to the ledger approach - you have to structure accounts and already posted line items of the subsequently implemented ledger in addition to consistently changing various interdependent Customizing settings (for example, for General Ledger Accounting and Asset Accounting). These functions are provided by the SAP General Ledger Migration Service.

    The most important factors of success are an extensive analysis of your initial situation and the detailed planning of the implementation project.

    You must prepare and execute this project with the utmost care to ensure accounting is still in order following the activation.

    To ensure maximum security, SAP actively supports each project with a service. It is available in the form of two further scenarios of the SAP General Ledger Migration Service:

    Scenario 7: Subsequent implementation of an additional ledger

    Scenario 8: Subsequent switch from the accounts approach to the ledger approach

    For more information on the migration services and a description of prerequisites for these scenarios, see the SAP Service Marketplace at:

    Note that this service only provides support for the technical migration of data.

    The customer is responsible for drawing up the blueprint and for the conception of changes including integration with other components and industry-specific/country-specific versions. The customer, together with his consultants, must ensure that the change functions correctly and is supported by SAP. This check is not part of the SAP General Ledger Migration Service.

    To access the site mentioned above, you require authorization for SAP Service Marketplace and an S-user ID. Contact your system administrator regarding this.

    Best Regards,
